Medical "Professionals"

‎*Letter sent to my PCP's office. Names have been changed.

On Monday I went to my appointment with Dr. Golf. I sat in the waiting room for an hour. I was brought back to the examination room where I sat and listened to the doctor talk to a patient about golf and family members for 45 minutes.

I left the examination room and explained to the nurse why I was going home. Still in very bad pain I called the Cleveland Clinic and was given an appointment with a surgeon Dr. Young  for Tuesday.
When I arrived at the Cleveland Clinic the nurse took me immediately back, took my vitals and my BP was 200/93. Twice.

Dr. Young came in looked over my information and told me ‎my blood pressure was dangerously high and he wouldn't be able to do anything for me until my pcp got it under control.

I give up. ‎Please let Dr. Love know what is going on. Thank you.

**I'm documenting all of this in case someone finds me dead at my house. Enough is enough. This pain is unbearable.

***Update. Had to have a HIDA scan of my gallbladder at the hospital on April 25th. My gallbladder failed and I finally will have surgery to remove it next week! If you know something is wrong inside your body don't give up. You know you better than anyone. Special thanks to Mary Anne @Mappy52. You rock.
