> I'm so sorry about your back!

Thanks Dinah, now I have something else wrong with me - with my nervous system and muscles - it's always something.

> It's kind of weird that he doesn't listen to his voicemail himself. Does it say so in the message? I'd be freaked out if I thought I was leaving him a confidential message and found I wasn't. Not to mention having it passed on incorrectly. That's a mighty big slip up on his office staff's part.

I think it's weird too, and it doesn't say anything - I wondered if he listened, thought his asst. probably did, but it pissed me off to hear he doesn't. What happened to confidentiality? His asst isn't bound to HIPPA in the same way he is.
> I'm glad he tried to be kind after he found out. I hope he follows it up with some instructions to his staff about properly taking a message. I think probably only you can know if he fulfills your needs enough for it to be worth his limits.

I'm not sure he'll say anything to his staff since he defended them about not passing on the message. Maybe he will. Right now I think I'll go back one more time - to get some things back, and tell him I want to read my file. I'm still really hurt and angry that he wasn't concerned for me, just for his bottom line.

> I don't think I could live with knowing I could never reach my therapist outside session. In fact, the more available he makes himself to me, the less often I call him at all. But that's me.

Yep, he's great in sessions, but completely unavailable unless you have an appt. My pdoc is always there if there's a problem, and I only call if it's necessary because I know how busy he is.

Thanks Dinah,
