After receiving the news that I had to have surgery from the orthopedic, I had a sense of urgency. I didn’t want to risk my health, and my life. I was focused on seeing Dr. Price and on having the surgery done, and it needed to be fast.
But, both Dr. Price and having surgery done, proved to be a much more difficult adventure than I had envisioned. After I disclosed the news to my family that I had to have surgery, my brother called Nemours clinic to make me an appointment to see Dr. Price. He spoke to the nurse about seeing Dr. price, but unfortunately, due to his popularity, he wasn’t available for another four months. At that point four months seemed like an eternity, a giant obstacle that was not worth the wait. So instead of waiting for Dr. Price, my brother made me an appointment to see Dr. Mark Sinclair.
My appointment was scheduled and it was in two weeks from that point. For my first visit, I needed to bring all of my medical records, including all of my previous x-rays, which meant that I had to pay a visit to Dr. Gray’s office.
Paying a visit to Dr. Gray’s office was not easy. It was difficult to step into that office, to see Dr. Gray and Tracy, two people who had denied me the opportunity to see another . In retrospect, I should have made it known to them that I didn’t need their help that I had found an Orthopedic and that I was going to have surgery, but I didn’t. I walked in, asked for my medical records and left. I wasn’t my friendly usual self I was cold, and dry, I had no desire to speak to any of them. Perhaps that was the best choice. They didn’t get an explanation because they didn’t deserve one. I didn’t see them again for many years, and I am glad that was the case.
With my medical records in hand I felt ready for whatever step I needed to take. I was ready to meet Dr. Mark Sinclair, the doctor who was going to change my life and my future. I was elated and ready.
