I just got a nasty letter in the mail from my optometrist today...Business must be slow. I skipped my annual appt last year in June due to Covid...In his letter he states how important annual eye exams are and if I don't make an appt within 30 days he is dropping me as a patient. I do have glaucoma, and have bene doing my part (and then some) with THC therapy! :lol:

I wanted to call his office and say, "Um, maybe you didn't hear, there's a global pandemic....asshole!!"
Do it and make an appointment at the same time

Have you ever fired your doctor? It's empowering! Time for a negative review at google reviews and ratemds.com

Leave a scathing Yelp review describing that bullshit.
I should...He pissed me of the last time I was there too, 2 years ago. His business wanted to charge me an additional $45 I believe to measure my pupillary distance...the distance between pupils, which I needed to order glasses on line. It's like a 30 second measurement and they already had charged my insurance company a healthy fee for his exam.

Currently I am planning to switch doctors!

Oh I forgot...and this is probably relevant. I DID give him a scathing review after him trying to charge me last time...I said in my review he clearly cares more about money than his patients welfare! He is probably pissed as hell :o

Yeah, I probably should find a new doctor...This guy is supposed to be really good, but he is old school surgeon and I'm thinking laser surgery might be better anyways.

That's more than I pay for my progressive glasses!

PD you can measure yourself, you just need a felt pen and a mirror.
Stand in front of a mirror wearing your glasses, use the felt pen to put a dot on the glasses directly over each pupil, take off the glasses and measure the distance between the two dots ........ job done.

Was it obvious that the review came from you?

Doctors, dentists and lawyers too.

If they are not helping my cause I'll move on.

I had the same doctor from 2012 to 2019. He was a condescending, self righteous prick! I would always feel worse about myself after seeing him. My last appointment was two minutes of me screaming profanities at him, loud enough for everyone in the building to hear, with my finger millimeters from his nose and slamming every door I went through on my way out. I felt like a million bucks when I left... and the look on his face is imprinted in my mind forever, his eyes were so huge, I thought he was going to cry lol.

My new doctor is awesome I wish I did that a long time ago.

Ran into town real quick to have my optometrist check out my subconjunctival hemorrhage. There is nothing stuck in my eyeball so it'll just take some time to go away. Looks ugly at the moment. He said I have an opportunity to make up some far fetched story about how it happened to anyone who asks about it.
Pretty common from I know, he'll, a sneeze can break blood vessel......usually goes away after a couple of weeks , (no expert here).

Yes, I had already done it myself, but wanted their professional measurement.

Yes, the reviews are in my real name!!

This guy is a piece of work too...I think it has been every year, about 10 years now, he cancels and reschedules his appt...Well he has a secretary do it, and it's always the same..."The doctor has scheduled a vacation so we need to change your appt."

Yes, I won't miss him!! I'll have to go look and see if he ever replied to my review.

Freaking WalMart pissed me off tonight with their home delivery crap. I didn't ask for home delivery but they decided to do it...two cars out here after 9 pm... delivering soap and deodorant by separate vehicle...at 9:10pm and again at 9:30 pm. Idiots!!

I had a lawyer I wouldn't mind seeing fall off a high roof someday. :finger:
A defense attorney tried to get me to sign a 10 year deal for a crime I didn’t commit. I told him “wtf am I paying you for? Get the fuck out of my face before you really piss me off.” For some reason he didn’t want to represent me anymore lol. The next one tried to get me to take 7 and I told him the same thing basically. I told him to tell the DA to go do the time(in front of the whole courtroom). He got the picture and saw that I was really innocent, not just saying I was, and he ultimately helped me win my case. I went through like 5 defense attorneys fighting that case. At one point nobody even wanted to pick up the case.

One thing I know for sure is ..... you must be in charge of your own health care.....dr.’s and nurses are far too busy to get really involved with any one patient. They look at your chart and if you haven’t complained or reported issues ( health or other wise ) then they don’t know what is up .

We have a history of health issues with my wife and children so I have been paying attention for a very long time. My sister in law recently had a major problem and her husband had not been paying attention because she had always took care of the kids and herself and he just didn’t know to be that involved. It’s been a very overwhelming experience for him and my wife but at least they are making progress and with time we’re hoping for some level of recovery.

If you have a good Dr. and have an open communication line with them...... that’s a relationship that has a value that is un measurable.

Just my 2 cents.


We are lucky to have a member ( C2G ) to go to and ask questions and get solid advice. Much respect !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sounds more like a public Pretender the defense attorney
