RE Drama

So I just found out that my RE has left the practice and has gone over to a new clinic. As a result I am stuck in limbo as I try to switch over while her/my former clinic are making it difficult. They are obviously upset about her departure and are choosing to handle it very unprofessionally and are intentionally impacting her patients' treatment, including mine. They have sent out communication and are offering discounts for her patients who stay. In the meantime, however they are taking as much time as they legally can to transfer her patients' files to her. Therefore, when evil AF arrives early this next week there is a very good chance that I will not be able to proceed this month because my file has not been transferred. Honestly the discount was a tempting offer to stay, however their bullying ways put a huge negative cloud over the place.

LAME. Very lame. We already missed December and January due to schedule conflicts (Xmas and then out of town). So the thought of sitting out another round when we are VERY ready to move but can't because of some jerks really stinks.

Sigh. I want to at least feel like I have control over the aspects that I should have control over- like moving ahead on the month that we planned.

My file that they have of course is quite thick. I faxed over my recent bloodwork/ovarian assessment results (which I happened to receive a copy of) plus my copy of November's IUI protocol to the new clinic today and have requested to move forward without the file being is there. The new office is very aware of the issues being created by the former clinic. I am a bit doubtful, yet hoping and that they make an exception about the file this month. This trying/failing/waiting is a bummer.

Fingers crossed for a green light this cycle.


  1. Wow that's terrible! It's absurd how unprofessional Dr's can be. I hope the new clinic gives you a break. I had a problem like this when switching midwives. I ended up going to the office & refusing to leave until I had my records in hand.

    1. I'm thinking about that possibility, even though we live quite far..

  2. UGH. What a nightmare. I am so, so sorry. Hoping the new clinic will let you proceed without the paperwork. You should not have to get caught up in the middle of this.


  3. Mo's "UGH, what a nightmare!" were to exact words I was thinking. I had a run-around with records too, and it's ridiculous, and sucks. Hope it gets sorted out soon.
