hate it: went to try see someone at the... - Anxiety and Depre...
Some people are so rude & it’s them not you. I get that treatment too. You’re just as important as anyone else. If they’re blatantly rude try & give it back, if you don’t like being rude be nice it kinda throws them. At least you’re not stooping down to their level.
to be honest i wanted to be rude and say hey hello im here a$$h0les but i felt so like trash like im a loser i just simply walked out
I can relate! I wish I had done something similar in a Drs office. I had waited months to see a certain ENT. The appt was mid day which is always a cluster with lunch and staff , etc. I checked in fine, then my appointment time passed by 30 minutes. I asked the front and they said likely another 30 minutes. Who does an appt an hour late? I did not take the high road. I have a life threatening medical condition so may be a bit different. I needed the ENT to see what was going on in my nose at the time. I demanded to talk to him and stood at the front desk until he arrived. All I needed was 3 mins of his time total. Let's just say I had a mini exam of my nose in the lobby! You sir indeed handle the situation much better. I was totally embarrassed by the whole thing. While effective, I was loud and angry! We all get it.
maybe i should of been loud too to get attention but sometimes i think well if im rude back now they definitly wont help me now
Whoa! I can't imagine being brave enough to pull that off. You're an inspiration.
And a success.
But what you did is terrific, whether those Bozos responded as you desired or not.
Sometimes the magic works.
to be honest i dnt know how i simply walked out of there without doing nothing didnt even slam the door or anything but i do know i felt like heart broken
I'm so sorry you weren't taken care of properly.
When bad things happen, it's pretty common to act on instinct. I'm glad you're talking about it here, where you can get support and decide how -- heaven forbid -- you'll handle it if it happens again.
One thing? You did nothing to encourage these people! Lots of times, people are too involved in themselves to even notice us. That's NOT how the office staff was supposed to behave.
Hold your head up, take a breath. Curse them out if it helps. It's not you. They were idiots.
thank you im glad u understand
google reviews for sure.
i wanted to leave a bad review as well but it would show my real name so i didnt
Hi Luna. Would you explain how you copied my screen name as a hyperlink? I'd like to know how to do that.
Nothing_but-pain Im going off for a bit but if it gives you trouble i'll be happy to help. 😊
I got it. Believe it or not. Yay! 😊
@Luna_Child, hmm. Okay, here goes:
Whadda ya know! Thank you! 😊
Don’t let this poorly trained gossip staff knock your confidence your SOMEBODY and you MATTER.
Go back but this time go loud and proud!!
You’re entitled to be heard and seen!!!
Hope isn’t nothing serious, wishing you the best of luck. XOX
Sorry you experienced this. People are so jaded sometimes and unaware, making them come off like rude A$&@&@$&. Hope you got that lol. Next time just say excuse me does someone work here? It usually sends a big message in a subtle way. Hang in there and don’t feel defeated! Go back and get your services or whatever you needed. Prayers up to you.
I'm so sorry to read this happened to you. I know it happens because I work in a Dr office. I sit behind the front desk people and I've watched this happen. Sometimes one may be showing her vacation pictures to a patient standing there and another patient is waiting for check in,
Unfortunately if there is not strong management, it's allowed to continue.
I would suggest bringing your complaint back into the office. Sending an email gives you a paper trail of your experience. If it lands in the proper hands it will be addressed. Doing a public review is ok too but not everyone looks at those.
These things get me so upset. I hope you will seek alternative care for what you went in for. This is not you, this is all about unprofessional behavior.
instead of waiting to be acknowledged I would have stepped right up interrupted their rude behavior and made it clear that you were there waiting to see someone ! No one will get very far if they don’t stand up for themselves. I am not saying what they did was right. It wasn’t. You need to take care of yourself.
I’m sorry this happened to you. You deserve to be seen, acknowledged and heard. Take care and be well.
They are there to deal with patients - not gossip! I doubt they noticed you leave, and it's not like a shop - they have nothing to lose. What if you'd rolled up doubled over or bleeding? Would they have seen you. They were not doing their job and this needs a formal complaint. You have trouble ahead now to find a new doctor.
Going to the doctor's can be frustrating sometimes. I understand the feeling.
Sounds like the UK isn't the only country having problems with their doctors. Sad to hear they (the employees who should know better) are making you feel like you're a loser. The truth is YOU ARE FAR BETTER THAN THEM - THEY ARE THE LOSERS.! Please don't allow the bad manners of the few - get to you, they are not worth going through such hassle for.
they are supposed to stop chatting if they have a patient that was rude to do to you I am so sorry that you went through that are you ok
Sorry they were unprofessional to you. It happens a lot at many different kinds of business
yea people just forgot what it means to have respect and love for others these days
Totally agree. No one smiles anymore. Seems people are in there own little world
Did you leave without being seen by the doctor?
yes..because front desk was just chatting with couple people bout stupid things that werent even job related
They are getting paid to do a job. When you go back remember that and be polite but firm in your approach. Don’t feel bad, they were at fault. 👍
dont wanna go back in there i feel like depressed bout it now like im too big of a loser to get help.i was actually going to talk to dr.bout me taking medication i dnt know whole thing made me feel like $h!+...yea im not going back in there
Please try not to feel like that about yourself, you are not a loser! What Weelon says is true, you are as important as anyone. Whoever had been standing there would have had the same experience.
youre right im just trying to not think bout th whole situation now but i truly appreciate u guys commenting its helping me forget the situation and not hold a grudge but i do feel like i wont b able to go back to that dr.s office
You will move on from this AXXES2.
beautiful..so u have a big garden?
Yes, too big for me to manage now. But I love it, and looking at the flowers and taking photos of them helps me when I am feeling low. I also watch and photograph the birds, animals and insects that visit the garden.
you grow your own vegetables ?
Used to, tomatoes, potatoes, asparagus. Started at school in the gardening club, radishes and marrows.
why u stop ?
Mobility problems, but I’m hoping 🤞that I may find a medication that helps and I might be able to do more than I am able to now. Tomatoes are so good when picked and eaten straight away.
yes definitly ..my grandma had her own garden as well grew almost anything tomatoes.peppers watermelon melons .she even tried growing avocados
Coincidence, I have 2 avocado trees, grown from stones, but the climate is not right for them to produce fruit. Did your grandmother succeed? And did you help her in her garden?
i definitly helped .but we couldnt grow avocado but we grew prunes lemons fig tree as well oh also pomergranit too
You and your grandmother were very successful that’s a wonderful variety. Home grown is healthier if no pesticides are used and also no supermarket costs. Win win. Maybe you will have a garden too, would you like that?
yes id like to have my own garden but i live in a shelter at the moment
I’ve seen some of your posts, have you lived in the shelter for long?
no maybe couple weeks now
Have you got anyone like a social worker who can support you in finding your own accommodation?
people at the shelter have helped me apply for welfare but i been put on a waiting list for a apartment
Everything takes time which really doesn’t help. Someone close to me was homeless and living in a tent, it has taken some time but it looks as though things are very gradually beginning to turn around for him.
yea same here i knew someone who lived in a tent but we both worked in the same place now i feel like i should of done more for him
You are a very thoughtful person and I feel that you would have done what you could at the time.
last time i heard of him he had a car a hes own place and better job that i had at the moment
Well he is proof that it’s possible to turn your life around. I wonder how he did it.
well first of all hes mom is rich like very rich he just didnt live with her cause she ended up moving a guy in
You will turn your life around without a rich relative to help, and that will be a real achievement.
thank u i hope so,really dnt want to b in this shelter anymore fights drugs go on in this place people steal others food even items like watches things like that. and no one in charge does anything bout it
Do you know how long the waiting list for an apartment is?
i really dont know id have to ask someone in the office
That sounds like a good idea, better to know what the situation is than being in the dark. There’s a saying “Knowledge is power.”
i been thinking that when i get a job depending how much it pays me im leaving the shelter and ill live out of a motel
I was just going to ask if you can apply for jobs while you are applying for welfare.
i have but only the ones that are close to me because i dnt have a vehicle or money for taxi
You are doing everything you can and you will get a break. Your qualities will be noticed I’m sure. Have you had any interviews.?
no interviews thats why i feel the way i feel right now i feel little hopeless
Sorry if this comes across as a third degree (interrogation) please say if you don’t want to answer questions. 🙂 We have organisations here that help people with their C. V.s, computer access, courses and interview techniques etc. Do you have anything like that?
This is common now; people becoming less caring and lazy. Maybe you should have interrupted them. It is not you but a sign of our times. Just be the opposite and learn to care anyway and be kind.
I don't blame you, I wouldn't go back either. Why pay for bad treatment?! I would let the doctor know how unprofessional and uncaring his staff is though. I hope you find a better doctor. There is nothing wrong with you!! Hugs!💗
I went to a doctor two years ago for clearance for a minor surgery and they had me fill out the depression screening paperwork and I indicated that I was suicidal. The doctor did the physical and never mentioned the screening paperwork. I started to walk away and then something made me turn around and say to him do you not care about your patients at all? I filled out a form that said I was suicidal and you aren’t even going to mention it? He brought me back into the room, called me “sweetie” and asked in what I consider baby talk if I wanted him to call an ambulance. I said no but acknowledging my issues would be nice. What’s the point of the questionnaire if you don’t even look at it.
I never went back! Screw him. Sometimes it takes a couple of different visits to find the right provider.
