For those of you who had expressed concern about the apparent poor handling of my case by the hospital clerical staff
Yesterday, I went back to the hospital to talk to a friendly and cooperative supervisor who apologized for the misinformation I’d been given two days before and for my being turned away and told to get another referral. However, my dentist had nevertheless left out the clinical information on the paper referral and needed to add it, so I visited her and, while I waited, she and her assistant faxed the completed forms to the hospital. This morning, the hospital phoned me to confirm receipt of the completed paperwork, so things are moving. I should soon have an appointment with an oral surgeon.
Also of note, my health‐related posts apparently triggered the Facebook algorithm to show me all my friends’ health‐related posts. I didn’t know we were all in such bad shape. 😉
