I called my OB's office this morning to make my first appt. and I had to leave a message. So I left all the details including the date of my last period etc... The receptionist calls me back and says that I need a new referral from my family Dr. I was like why ? I have been his patient since 2006. She said it's because it's been too long since I last saw him. I saw him in August 2009 for my 6 weeks PP check. That's not even 2 yrs ago ! Not to mention that on his site it says that if you are a pregnant patient you don't need a referral to see him, but she says I do. :banghead:
So now I have an appt. with my GP on Friday afternoon. I will have to have the initial bloodwork and first U/S done through her I guess and she will have to send a referral in to my OB's office. It's frustrating that I have to go through all this just to see my OB again. Not to mention that we are in the process of changing family Dr's right now but we only have an appt. with the new Dr. at the end of June, so I can't wait that long. I was really hoping to be done with our current GP, but I have no choice. I guess I have to see her this one last time.
Sorry for the vent. I'm just so frustrated that I have to go through all this trouble to see my OB again.
