I was terribly sick, and dragged myself to the minute clinic on a Saturday afternoon to get tested for the flu. When I arrived the NP was busy in the back socializing and talking about how great she looked in photos. All I wanted was a flu test. When she finally stopped socializing, she did not let me check in because she said my symptoms sounded like pneumonia (which I knew they did not) that's when I had to vomit...she then came up with she could not see me because I was dehydrated and needed fluids. No lady!! I need a flu test! Needless to say I drove down the street and tested positive for the flu at a place that was more than willing to see and treat me!
Horrible experience in the Target Minute Clinic today. I asked the "doctor" for the doctor's note to be written in a way that complies with my union contract, didn't get that. I asked for a referral to a specialist for my HMO, didn't get that. Wish I would have gone elsewhere, my $25 copay down the drain & I may be denied access to my sick leave for two days pay because of the lack of terminology in my doctor's note. Thanks for nothing Doc!
