What a waste of our tax dollars
I got sent to a hematologist for low iron (although not anemic). I was told to arrive 45 minutes BEFORE my appt to do labs and paperwork. I arrived 40 min before (lunchtime traffic) - there were no labs and there was no paperwork. They took my weight, height, temp, pulse ox and blood pressure - that is NOT labwork....I arrived at 12:20, my appt was at 1pm, I finally saw the doc 1:35.... and his big solution for now after a little poking and prodding and a small chat - double my iron dosage. Really???? I needed a specialist for that suggestion???
