I left message for Alex two weeks back and twice left message for Darcy last week, so far haven't heard back.
Have you experienced such? shall I keep calling or this is common wait time to hear back from them?
They'll getcha, no doubt about it! When us first 20-30 got scheduled it was more of a trickle coming in, just since then, all the way back in August, it's multiplied big time. Factor in the holidays and such, you're probably looking at January+ anyways. Getting into the OR/finding a slot for the procedure is the easiest part, mostly it's the MRI scheduling and getting the insurance settled out which is complicated, and also Dr. D's schedule which may find him going hither and yon on different missions. So far Alex hasn't forgotten anyone yet, she conducts quite an orchestra over there and doesn't miss much. Darcy is new to the game there but is getting up to speed quickly. Now that Alex is full time, wow how great is that! She was stretched thin between Dr. D's office, and the Cath Lab. She really wanted to be doing this full time for us and voila! So we are all excited for her to be in one spot, and for future patients to get her full and undivided attention. You are watching a work in progress, the whole system has come a LONG way from merely a few months ago! You're in good hands.
