Frustrated... I chose my ob office because of location. It's about 10 minutes from my house. The other office is near the hospital, and is about 20min away. Big difference? The whole office i go to is full of residents. My doctor is a resident. They are also Family Physicians, so when baby is born I can keep seeing the same doctor for myself and baby. I didnt think having a resident would be an issue since all my appointments are pretty basic anyways, and an OB from the other office would do the c-section. The other office is ALL ob's. No residents at all.
Now i feel like they aren't good enough. Amateurs. The ultrasounds are done at the other office full of OB's. They never transfer my tests or ultrasounds. So my resident doctor never has a clue of what happened at the appointments from the other office. When I found out about the Echogenic Bowel and had all the blood testing, my doctor didnt even have access to the results and couldnt answer my questions! She replies " I have never seen an Echogenic Bowel before."
Today, I had an appointment because I have had a sore throat for 4 days, pulled groin, and seeing spots. Since it wasn't my normal monthly appt. they fit me in with another doctor. I thought "maybe I'll get one who can actually answer my questions!" Wrong! In walks a guy who looks like he couldnt be any older than 25. Im sure he's really smart, but I feel more comfotable with old doctors lol. more experience right? He checked my groin and pelvic movements, told me to rest. Checked my eyes, told me to go to an eye doctor since I have great blood pressure and no protiens in urine. Last but not least, I had to REMIND him to check my super sore throat since it was clear he forgot. I was worried about strep. He looked at it and said "It doesnt look like strep. Just rest and it should be gone in 10 days or so." didnt even swab my throat. I thought strep can cause harm to the baby. Whats the harm in testing for it? just one peek and thats it?
I feel like I shouldnt have even bothered making an appointment. When I was at the other office dealing with the ultrasound worries, the OB's were so thorough. I felt like they had answers to ALL my questions. Unlike the residents at my office who seem to know booksmarts, but beyond that, nothing. Not enough experience. Plus, I like having my appointments in a separate OB office with a separate waiting room. My office, Im combined in the waiting room with all the sick old people and children.
My next appt. isnt until July 10th, so I think I am going to transfer before then. Thanks for letting me vent!
