Am I Expecting too much?

I mean really, is it too much to ask to be able to call my RE and actually be able to schedule an appt?
During my last IUI I asked the RE what the next step was if I got a BFN. He told me that he thought I should have my fibroids removed. Great, if that is what I need to do, I figured, I'll do it.
I got my BFN last night. I started calling this morning at 8:30 this morning to schedule the procedure. Three hours later the nurse called to tell me the RE would send me an email. The email from my RE expressed that he wanted me to schedule a consultation to discuss my options which are : 1) Surgery to remove my fibroids and 2) In Vitro.
First of all I live 3 hours away from his office so there is no way that I am going to drive 3 hours for him to explain IVF to me. We haven't even tried IUI with injectables yet!!!! And since we have unexplained IF, and the fibroids "shouldn't" be causing our IF, why jump to IVF?
So I replied (politely) that I would not be driving 3 hours for a consultation. I also explained that IVF is not an option for me at this time. He replied that this was reasonable and wrote for the nurse to schedule me for surgery...3 hours later no reply from his nurse! I tried to call an hour and a half ago but got the nurse's voicemail. I am FURIOUS right now that it takes a full day just to book a procedure with them.
Maybe it's the homones and the let down of this whole IF situation, and I'm really trying HARD not to lose my temper with them, but they are really trying my patience!
