Our son (5 months) was seeing Dr. Raman Chopra. My wife called in to get our sons ear looked at, we believe glue ear.
We have also been wondering about his circumcision, as it look like there is a lot of skin left and he has a small bump on the side of his penis.
She got an appointment that day. She left the mucus in his ear so that the doctor could see it.
The doctor came in took his temp and swabbed the ear.
Put it in the container and said “take this to the lab and call me in 3 days to find out what it is.” Would not even look at our sons circumcision.
Doctor was going to leave before my wife asked how she should clean his ear out.
He said “whatever way you can.” She went to the front desk to schedule a 6 month appointment as we had missed the 4 month. (Never got a reminder call about the appointment, and we live 80 miles away with 2 other children and full time jobs.
Sometimes things get forgotten, honest mistake.) When she mentioned the missed appointment the lady at the desk said “yeah well most parents are more responsible.”
Could have been able to look past taking your own samples to the lab.
Maybe the Dr. was busy, but he could have suggested how to clean the ear, and it takes a couple minutes to look over the circumcision.
We will not be returning to an office that insults us as parents for a simple mistake.
