Physio frustrations

Aug 29, 2017 11:08 PM

Who else gets frustrated with physio wait times? I was told today that my shoulder physio could be two weeks to two months wait!! What is with that? What do I do in the meantime? Sorry for the rant!

Yes! I was on unemployment for 3 months and another 2 months before my new job ins started. I've had to wait another month to get into my RA doctor. My primary saw me right away, knowing my issues of job loss, they squeezed an appointment in for me. I feel some doctors offices have too many patients to take care of is properly. Hang in there and call 2 times a week to see if anyone has cancelled and maybe you can get in. Best wishes.

It’s like that everywhere. Sit and wait. Definitely call them and be placed on their cancellation list. If you’re flexible with appointments, you can usually get in much sooner. Good luck.
