This is part of why I put off making doctors appointments. I called to make an appointment today because my migraine, insomnia and the real reason my dizziness have gotta worse. I get dizzy alot its nothing new. normally the worst with getting up or down. they want me to rush in a be seen today. They always act like these are things happening just today but I even say I can't remember a time it wasn't like this it has just got worse. Does anyone else get the same treatment when trying to make doctors appointments?

      It’s actually the opposite for me. They tend to brush aside my concerns and make excuses instead of actually try to figure out what’s wrong with me. Like I have a physical December 7th but I’m waiting on lab work to find out if I have an autoimmune disease but they haven’t even contacted me to let me know that it did in fact come back positive.

      Your fine. Yeah it is good they listen. I think it only annoys me because I didn't go to the doctor really till I was 17 and didn't get one till this year that listens. So I think it's just a new thing and i don't get why they think most the things I come in for (normally things I've been experiencing most my life) are considered urgent

      I mean. It's good that they seem to be taking you seriously. My doctors aren't usually so urgent about it but I've also had doctors that just completely dismissed me and didn't care. I prefer urgent and taken seriously personally. Sorry if this didn't help at all
