Is this doctor a jerk or what?
I went to have oral surgery under IV sedation today. I was chewing gum unaware that it was not allowed, but I did not eat or drink for 10 hours. The doctor had his nurse tell me that he would not perform the surgery under sedation because of it. Ok, that's fine. I understand that. But then they refused to reschedule because "you wasted the doctor's time." Now is that not effed up?!? They were the only facility near me that would do it with sedation and now I'm screwed. I'm going home for the summer where my insurance is not covered and so now I don't know what I'm going to do. I'm so pissed!! My father was upset as well because he drove 7 hours to be here, wasted $300 for a hotel and lost time at work (he's a lawyer). He's going to complain about him to anyone that'll listen and so am I. Just wanted to get your opinions. I'm not mad about him not doing the surgery, just to be clear. I'm mad about the refusal to reschedule and kicking me out of the office, and now I won't be able to have this surgery for god knows how long.
