Twice I have called and made appointments to see my regular doctor. One time I called prior to driving the 65 miles for the appointment and was told there was no appointment on the books. Most recently I drove the 65 miles and was told there was no appointment on the books but was offered an appointment with another provider. This is very frustrating. It would be great if we could schedule the 6 month return visit at the time of the appointment.
