HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME
Thanks health care system for not letting me take my child to the dr. Yesterday I had called Sophia's new peditrition (long story) to see if she could be seen. The nurse said since she was a new patient she couldn't be seen till next week. I kindly said that won't do i'll just tak her to the after hours clinic. We arrive at the after hours clinic right at three. The nurse checking us in said that since we have medicade they can only see Sophia with a dr.s referral. It has to be the dr medicade has assisigned. I called the new dr's office and the nurse tells me they might not be able to send a referral since they have never seen Sophia before, but she would check. So I am put on hold then the phone cuts off. I tried calling back for 30 minutes, no answer just an answering machine. (remember we're still at the after hours clinic). I was so PISSED OFF we left, Sophia never beeing seen by anyone. So she is still congested, still has a light rash ALL over her body an no where to take her. Hardly seems right to me. I wonder if I had been any other race would that have happened? I'm not being racist, just a thought.
