    DS had his tonsils & adnoids removed last Thursday. The surgery went great but we had a very long wait....we were there @ 10:30am and within 1/2 hr he was checked in and gowned up waiting, his procedure was scheduled for noon. By 1:30 DH was irritated, by 2:30 DS was crying for a drink of water, he'd had nothing to eat or drink since midnight. Turns out the doctors' previous patient had complications, he arrived at 4pm and was VERY apologetic. He called on friday to check on my son...I was very pleased with that, he called himself when a nurse could have easily asked follow up questions. Now today in the mail we received a get well card on which the doctor wrote a lengthy note apologizing again for the circumstances and included was a $50 Toys R Us card for my son [​IMG] I was blown away!

    If ALL doctors were that good i might not gripe so much about the cost of medical care! Good for your DS!!

    That is great, it shows there are some that actually dont see patients as just another body to diagnose.
