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.

I'm currently trying to ignore I had any problem until it crops up again, but it's good to hear that your cardiologist seems good.

It sounds a lot like the oral surgeon I want to for my jaw injury. They fit me in that day so I went to them, but I had to do tons of followups and foolishness. I think they charged me 1 or 2 too many co-pays too. Blah. They're also a cosmetic surgery place, so while I'm waiting to have my jaw x-rayed, froggy was looking at boob job photos.
