I believe I have good doctors, but sometimes observe odd things with one and now two. A week or so ago, I got a call from the secretary of Dr. G. (Leaving out specialty on purpose). She's been freakishly out of the office A LOT and her PA, E. , has been taking a lot of her appointments. When I tried to find out why Dr. g. Is out of the office so much, I got the cold shoulder. I've seen E. At least twice over the summer, but probably haven't been in since early July. The secretary tells me that Dr. g says I need to come in for an abdominal ultra sound. I ask why, since this was never mentioned at my appointments. The secretary very nervously says she thinks, but is not sure, it is in reference to some bloodwork my GP sent to them in March. (Six months ago). I got a little pixxed and said I need to call her back. I called an hour later and got the run around from the secretary. Left messages on her recorder. Took her about a week to call me back. She calls me finally and nicely semi apologizes for taking so long to get back to me, but says that Dr. g is out a lot and if I could get on their internet portal, I could write my question, get a reply from the doctor and make the appointment. ok, I said...and was very pleased with this response. I get on the portal and write the doctor asking her nicely what promoted my need for an abdominal ultrasound. The secretary writes back the following: Dr. g says that E. Made a mistake and didn't realize you had an U/S in July. Please send us any new bloodwork you might have. I wrote back, maybe stupidly 'cause I'm missing something, that as best as I can recall, my last ultrasound with one of my doctors was over a year ago and certainly was not this summer, but I do have new bloodwork that I will send in. I also said that my original question was never answered: What prompted the call for an ultrasound? My gut is screaming at me that something is NOT kosher about this. Ideas? Help? Fortunately, I see my GP Friday and I will have her review my old and latest bloodwork to see if she thinks there is something of concern.
