My Partner takes Ropinerol twice a day. We saw the doctor today and he increased the dose to TWO twice a day. What a day! We had two doctor appts scheduled same clinic. The first doctor was 45 minutes late calling us in. Then we are in the office where my partner is in a special chair and it is hurting his tailbone. They were going to do a EMG test. FINALLY the doctor came in and I could tell he was rushing. He had been told that we have the Parkinson appt at 3:30 and he is already 1 hour late to see us. DAMMIT I was mad. He had to quit the test early and said he would set another time for the second half. We then waited to be called to see the Parkinson doctor who now has taken another patient since we were LATE. We wait 30 minutes to get into him. He is GREAT and got us out within about 20 minutes. I was so upset as my Partner was in such pain and there seemed to be no caring about his pain. The first doctor had a starbuck coffee in his hand when he came in. The Starbucks is about 4 blocks from the clinic. This told me he could care less and took a long lunch and coffee.
He is planning on a hip shot and two back shots at the surgery center in about 1 1/2 weeks. BUT, the scheduling is being held up by the Radiologists as they are having a hard time getting together. UGH! Does anyone care that my Partner 89 years old is in pain????
Thanks for listening and my complaining. SORRY
