garg.

My doctor== bad.

She overbooks. She won't refill prescriptions over the phone like all my other doctors have. Both of these things are cash grabs - she can charge OHIP more that way. She also runs a cosmetic surgery clinic on the side, and has huge posters for Botox all over her office. Before sending me to the cardiologist, she had me go get a whole rack of tests. When I go to the cardiologist, he started running those same tests, until I told him I had just had those a month ago. My doc had not sent over *any* of the test results. So it was pretty much a waste of a trip. The cardiologist said he'd check the results when he got them, and talk to my doc, or call me if it is serious. His opinion is that it's just an occasional extra beat, and that I should just ignore it and try not to let the anxiety carry me into hyperventilating.

Once this is sorted with the current GP, I am going to start looking for another one. I am annoyed.

Perhaps this extra-tests story should also be sent to the Ministry of Health? They don't like it when doctors make cash grabs. They beat them down with sticks.

At least it sounds like you have a good cardiologist.
