Susan, I agree with racer that your posts are not very supportive...but I have to admit that I kind of agree with some of the sentiment behind it.

Hospitals ARE full of really sick people...anesthesiologists DO have higher priorities than elective procedures if an emergency arises. I think it's important to be prepared to wait, and to schedule a more effective ride (cab, etc.) if one is going into the hospital for ANY procedure, be it ECT, EKG, stress test, LP, etc.

On the other hand, there may be more to this story than we know -- maybe the attitude of the pdoc is really awful. Sometimes people can overreact, even if they're in the "right," and make a patient feel like cr*p. I'm sure the pdoc could have handled this in a way that let the patient reschedule without the horrible extra stress that must surely accompany any procedure like that!

ARe you OK right now, Susan? It sounds from your response that you might be struggling, b/c you don't normally respond like this!

I hope you're ok.
