Trying to make/keep appointments during Coronavirus pandemic.



I’ve been trying to see a specialist Obgyn for many months. But I’ve been having issues with the referral. I called last week and was informed they still needed a certain part of my referral. When I called the next day to clear more issues up they informed me that all appointments were filled and there was a waitlist. I then called my case manager and she called them yesterday only to find out that all appointments were on hold due to coronavirus. I’m so frustrated I’ve been trying to see a specialist doctor forever for my issues. So far I believe I still have my cardiologist check up appointment at the beginning of April but we will see. I know that if these appointments are canceled that a couple of things will happen, my referrals will expire (which I know will happen with my Obgyn specialist one) and I won’t be able to make the appointment till my summer break, assuming things have stabilized by then.
Anyone else having this trouble? How are you dealing with it?
