    I arrived for my appointment and signed in at the desk then went to the restroom. When I came out of the rest room I waited a few minutes while standing because sitting hurt to much. I was called into the back area where I was weighed and asked to sit down for my blood pressure and temperature. I explained to the nurse that it was painful to sit so if it is ok to stand. The nurse asked me why am I here for today. I told the nurse I was there for a UTI. I explained this had happened once before. I explained to the nurse I was urinating blood with some blood clots. She asked how big were the clots. I told her about the size of a pinky nail. The nurse gets up and walks away. At this time my P.A.'s nurse saw me and saw that I was in much pain and asked if I was alright. I told her I had that UTI again. She said, yes I remember from last time. She said she was sorry to hear that and then continued with her business. About a minute later the Physiciansnurse returns and tells me that I have to go to the hospital. I explained that this was not necessary because I had this once before about 2 years ago. I explained that my Chiefland Medical PhysiciansAssistant at that time asked a few questions and took a few tests to verify it was a UTI and prescribed me antibiotics. I could not understand why I was being told to go to the hospital by the doctors nurse and being refused to be seen by the doctor. I said to the nurse "the doctor has not even seen me yet". The doctor then stepped out of the corner as if he had been listening to the nurse talk to me. The doctor says you have to go to a hospital you could have something seriously wrong with you. I tried to explain to him that I had a UTI about 2 years ago and was treated at Chiefland Medical. I explained that all I needed was an antibiotic. The doctor said you could have something wrong with your kidneys. I explained to him that I had an ultrasound done within the past year and everything was clear. I said it would all be in my file since I have been a patient for 15+ years in good standing. The nurse started rifling through stacks of papers from my file as the Doctor says I don't even know who you are, I'm not going to treat you. I asked him how he could refuse to treat me, are you not filling in for my P.A.? He said I am not going to see you, you could be anybody, I don't know who you are and I have never seen you before. At this time the nurse keeps saying 2013 over and over. I asked the doctor to just look at my file and see my history. Again the doctor said I won't see you, you have to go to a hospital. I replied, that is not right, how can you do that? I asked him how he could just refuse to see a patient of one of his Physician's Assistants. I asked him doesn't this make me your patient automatically? At this point he started to become belligerent and turned to the nurse and said do what you have to do to get rid of him. Then the doctor muttered something about payment. I said you know what, I have to go, this is ridiculous, you people suck. I went up to the window where you pay and had my $40 co-pay in my hand. I waited for the people in front of me to be done. All the office staff walked away when it became my turn. I could see the nurse still looking through my file so confused as to what just took place. I am waiting to pay my bill with my money in hand and nobody is coming over to take my payment. Finally someone came out of the back office and asked if there was anything else they could help me with. I replied yes a real doctor. I just want to pay my bill and get out of here. At this point the entire staff is whispering to each other as they look at me cringing in pain. Then the so called doctors nurse comes to the window and says what are you doing? I told her I was waiting to pay my bill. She says their is no bill. I replied that would have been nice to know 5 minutes ago. Since I was not allowed to remain in the office I had to go outside and called my wife to come and pick me up and she was doing errands. I had no where to lean up against, it was hot outside and I thought I was going to pass out. My wife arrived saw my condition and went to ask why a 15+ year patient is being refused to be seen. I became irate when the girl at the front desk began to smirk at our situation. It was the most unprofessional staff experience either one of us has ever experienced at a medical facility. Chiefland Medical sent me a certified letter canceling me as their patient.

    This was my first visit to this facility. I made an appointment. This was NOT a walk in. The nurse, or assistant, who took my vitals seemed shocked that I hadn't had blood work done for over a year. I was wondering why would I if I am perfectly healthy? The doctor spent maybe 5 minutes with me looking in my ear and asking a couple of questions. The assistant spent 3 minutes flushing my ear. It seemed to help a little.
    The doctor made a referral for me to see a specialist. He didn't explain why. I would have at least expected him to ask how I felt other than my ear problem.
    He wrote me a prescription and left.
    Two weeks later I received a bill for $55 for having my ear irrigated. So I spent a total of $209, got to see a doctor for maybe 5 minutes, and learned nothing.
    Maybe I just expect too much from the medical profession.
