Where O Where

A couple of weeks ago I received this notice:

March 23, 2007 (received 4/10—go ahead, count the days…I did)

Dear Patient:

This is to advise you that, effective March 23, 2007, Dr. MBO will not longer be affiliated with The WHC.

If you would like to continue as a patient of Dr. O’s you are free to do so, and WHC will transfer your medical records to Dr. O.

If you wish to remain a patient of WHC and to be treated by one of our other physicians, you may also do that.

Please let us know what your decision is by signing the enclosed form and either returning it to us in the enclosed envelope, or faxing it to us at 111-111-1111. You may also call us at 222-222-2222.

If you have any questions, please fee free to contact us.

Very truly yours,

Medical Director


You bet your bananas *I* have QUESTIONS!!!! Who the hell said my doctor could SPLIT. And WHY have *I* not heard from HER!!??!!!

I let the dust and my emotions settle before actually calling. When I did call I asked very calmly as to the whereabouts of Dr. MBO. The response was not at all encouraging. Basically, it was…uhm…well…uhm…mmmm..hmmm…”we don’t know.”

It seemed prudent to let that news settle for a day or two or three. Several days later I call back to ask if there were a forwarding number for Dr. MBO. The response, once again, was a muttering, sputtering….”we don’t know, er, no.”

One more call to inquire as to the status of one missing doc. And once again no sightings and no news regarding the good doctor MBO. Shit. I have had an appointment for Friday. I have conditions there were being monitored. Shit. I have no intention of staying with WHC and seeing one of the other docs. The only reason I was there in the first place was my doctor.

Now, in addition to still needing to find a dentist, I must also find a new doctor.


  1. I have the world's best dentist. Make your appointment--you can hang here..I have dental therapy beverage.

  2. Hi
    the bright side is you still have your very own personal omelet chef!

    good luck in your search for the missing doc...


  3. I bet I know what happened... she met a woman online and then her new gal lived FAR away... so one day she just couldn't take it any longer and just said, "THAT's IT!" and quit her job and moved to be with her new gal and didn't tell anyone. (not even her favorite patient, Deborah!) I mean, when you gotta go, you gotta go and being in love and all... well, Deborah, ya just give that girl a break. There are other drs! good luck!

  4. Sometimes life just sucks.

    Thanks for your kind words at my blog.

  5. My doc bailed and they wouldn't tell me where she went either. The place had a PA I liked, so I stayed, but I should have had a more real choice. The Doc--I heard she met up with your doc--Val has it right.

  6. how frustrating. i had this happen with my ob/gyn. The rising costs of malpractice insurance play a huge part. Good luck with the search. I sympathize.

  7. My favorite doctor up and moved to Chicago. That was 20 years ago. I still hold a grudge.

  8. Hey there are plenty of great doctors in Nashville...hummm (wink wink)


Hi! Your visit is much appreciated.
