Okay... where to start!
First, I've talked to doctors, and like a lot of people said, Dr. Elrod sounds very promising. I'm impressed with his stats, his attitude and beliefs, and I am very excited to have an appointment with him! I was supposed to have one on the nd of July, but lovely for me, I was on Jury duty and no such thing was possible.
So, it was rescheduled for the 18th. I'm very much anticipating it, because I can't wait to meet him! I really hope this is it for me, because I'm pretty sure I made my old OB mad...
They called asking about rescheduling an appointment (I had been seeing them while I was doctor shopping/waiting.) And I told them to cancel the appointment, I would be seeing a different doctor. They said they'd let the staff know. Less than ten minutes later I get a call from the office nurse. Went like this.
Her: Are you going to be seeing us any more?
Her: Can I ask why?
Me: I'm going to be seeing a doctor in Palmer now.
Her: Are you moving?
Her: Why are you going to a doctor so far away?
Me: Because I don't want another c-section.
Her: Well did you talk to Dr. Barton about a VBAC?
Me: He said I could, but when I first mentioned it, he looked at me bugeyed and said it was really dangerous. I need a doctor that is supportive and encouraging of my choice.
Her: Well, okay then....
She didn't sound very happy with me, and actually kind of irate.
But whatever. I get the feeling they're more interested in keeping patients around for monetary reasons. Why would they be so bothered about losing a client to call immediately after hearing yet any other time I called it took them HOURS to get back to me.
