Dear Dr. —–,

I’m afraid I’m going to have to quit you. You came highly recommended. And I like you a lot. But it’s just too goddamned hard to get in touch with you. Considering what you charge, I expected a greater level of contact.  I realize I’m in the big city now, and doctors of your caliber are in high demand. However, I am accustomed to a doctor who is attentive to my needs, and if I have to return to Huntsville to receive that, then that’s what I’ll do. I’m a well-informed educated patient, and I know this is a serious situation. Waiting nearly three weeks for an appointment is simply out of the question. I’m accustomed to having a doctor who is available, and nurses who return phone calls in a timely manner. Again, you come highly recommended, and I’m sure this will mean nothing to you, but goodbye, it’s been real.


Your former patient

  1. I feel ya. I am about to quit my primary care physician. She has no concept of the fact that my time is as important as hers.

  2. Been there done that. I would recommend Dr. Stephanie Turnage in Tucker if you need a great PCP. I have never waited more than 15 minutes in her waiting room or her back room. And her follow up is great. If you need a gyn, I recommend Dr. Stephanie Carmichael in Decatur. Both of them have great bedside manner.
