Needless to say Evelin wasn't happy. "I'm in the middle of my fifth miscarriage, there's nothing the doctor can do for me." They insisted (I don't know if it's an office rule or an HMO rule), so she's going in early this morning. Hopefully, for everyone involved's sake, they won't keep her waiting too long and they give her the referral then and there, instead of trying to say it takes 36 hours or something.
UPDATE [10:40:22 AM]: I just heard from Evelin. She got the referral, but we've going to change GPs. After arguing yesterday, she got an 8:30 a.m. appointment; the doctor didn’t get in until 9:30 a.m. She was upset already, and his bedside manner mostly involved telling her to calm down. Now we just have to find someone (preferably convenient to her office) who's practice is accepting new patients ...
