My last Gyno appt. She's also an OB so she does baby deliveries.
I always show up for doctor appointments 10-20 minutes early. I figure that way, I can make sure I have time to fill out forms, and sometimes the docs are running early (though very rarely.) I always take a book to read since I usually do a bit of waiting.
Anyway, my appointment was for 12, I show up a little after 11:30. Receptionist tells me that my doc would be late, they didn't know HOW late, she was doing a delivery, and expected to be back within the hour.
Enter Princess. Princess has REALLY long acrylics. Like, comedy sketch long. So long in fact, she told the receptionist that she was going to have to fill out her forms. The receptionist actually took it in stride until Princess wanted her to dig in her purse to get the info. Receptionist declines (which I don't blame her, HUGE liability there.)
Princess gets upset, I come to the window to drop off my board. Princess tries to get ME to dig in her purse and fill out her information. I decline. Princess goes on a rant about how she was going to MAKE
us pay for her new set of nails if she broke them.
Princess decides no one is going to dig out her information and fill out her forms, so she sits down. A few minutes later she takes the form back and she's told that her doctor is in a delivery (we were seeing the same doctor.) She flips out. It's soooo inconvenient. She has to reschedule and she'll be late for her yearly. (Which is sort of true, if you don't book 4-6 months in advance for this doc, you can't get in.) The receptionist says that they have back up plans for when this happens, and if she has to reschedule they would make sure to get her in with our doc the same week. That's not good enough. She has a hair appointment, and a spa day planned, blah blah blah... Receptionist says if she'd like to leave, receptionist can call and let her know when the doc is back.
Not good enough for Princess. She demands they make the doc come back because, "If she's in labor, it's not like she needs her. I was in labor for like 20 hours!" God bless this receptionist, she knew she was lying, and she called her on it. Receptionist says, "Oh! You've had a child? Your forms don't mention that. I'm afraid I'll need you to fill it out to correct that information."
Princess slinks out of the office. 10 minutes later, in walks doc. I told her about Princess when I saw her and she laughed. Apparently the receptionist has a very gentle disposition, but doesn't take crap from anyone.
