I had a receptionist do that
to me when the NP said he wanted a mammogram stat. She rolled her eyes and said "who orders a mammogram stat?" I said I guess he does I think he wants to get the ball rolling, so the soonest possible maybe. I wonder why some people have the job they do...
I had a stage 2 estrogen+. Stage two because it was in one node so they took 8. Really??? I had a low Onco score. My oncologist is one of those 'lets throw everything at it'. I'd ask questions and she would repeat this Standard of care mantra that made both Chris and me insane. She even disagreed with the radiologist in oncology. I think you need it. I said he is really certain that I don't. The funny thing is he told me she would say that. He was amazing, he answered everything I asked. Told me and showed me studies. Said I would benefit 2%, in his opinion the side effects outweighed that. Other than him they never had any answers for me. I did everything they said at the beginning (double mast, reconstruction, chemo, etc) and when I didn't feel I was getting better I took matters into my own hands. They don't like that.
But it was always a NP who figured things out for me. Every drug they gave me I had problems with. My O would just say "that's how it is" the NP would ask have you ever had a problem with x drug before? Every time I see or talk to my O she blows out air like I'm wasting her time, or she is bored. Everyone loves her.
I thought it was me, but Chris said she has an total attitude with you. One time I asked for the studies she refers too and she just blinked at me. But he thinks I ask too many questions she can't answer. Yes I know I am the patient from hell.
