The Truth About Doctors’ Appointments (comedic)

(Captions by Emily S) (Typing Noise) The doctor always calls the second you leave your phone to go to the bathroom (Whirring Sound) The hospital is sure to connect you to ten different people before you finally speak to the right person. Hi, is this the radiology department? No, sorry man. This is the dietary Uhhh…. Let me connect you Hi, is this radiology no, ma’am, I’m sorry, it’s not but I can connect you I’m assuming this is not the radiology department. Let’s be real Can you ever read the doctor’s note. Take one pill orally and make sure to take it at night? (pausing throughout speech) don’t and don’t forget to be Are you kidding me? When insurance makes absolutely no sense. Yeah, yeah. I know. I totally understand that. You guys said that you’d only cover one orthotic. Um, but I have two feet What no one can remember what the doctor actually said. (high pitched voice) Honey, where are your crutches. (Izzy) Mom. The doctors said I don’t need the crutches anymore (Mum) She said in two weeks you don’t need them anymore. (Izzy) Oh my god, you’re so wrong! and every time you call a doctor’s office it says (Voice on phone) If its a medical emergency please hang up now and call 911. Thank you so much for the reminder I actually thought it was one two three .When the doctor asks you to confirm your birthday and you just somehow hesitate and you feel so sketchy. Oh, yeah my birthday. Um, March 5th 1997 heh That horrendous music they play while you’re on hold. I think they do it on purpose (Fun music) This music sucks! When the doctor’s office is only ten extensions away (Fast talking on phone) When you finally dial those ten extensions and they answer your phone call … and then it hangs up Hi. Yes. Thank you so much for answering. Um, I just have a question about my fillings could you help me with that? (Voice on phone) Sure. Let me just put you on hold while I bring up your information.(Izzy) Okay. Thank you (Hold music) (Beeping) Are you kidding me! When they give you a few pieces of paper or Stacks of paper to fill out. (Voice off camera) Please have a seat and fill these out. (Izzy) Thank you When the doctor does a little bit of prompting of their achievements Geez, could you tone it down a little? When the doctor tries to sell you things I’m gonna prescribe you my face cream that might help with your wrinkles that you might get in 30 years and While you’re at it, you should probably pick up my book at the front desk. After the appointment You’re never sure if you need to check out or not Do I need to check out right now or my no, I’m good okay (Nervous laughter) Thank you, and that was the truth about doctors appointments. (Funky outro music)

  1. Yes! This is. So true. Thanks for making me laugh about this stuff, instead of just being frustrated for once. lol

  2. Added:
    Receptionist- Great! All scheduled!
    Me- Great! Thank you!

    appointment time comes

    Receptionist- "Ooooooh. You have chronic pain? We can't see you."

  3. I guess it is easier in the UK, a month to see a GP then its years on waiting lists instead. If you live long enough to make it to the next level of Dr you're so wrecked by then that they aren't the right person to see and they just put you on another waiting list for another few years.

  4. So true๐Ÿ˜‚! I even once sunk my phone in the toilet because of it๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜‚! Never put it in your bra๐Ÿ™ˆ

  5. 0:09 Should I say what unusual thing I just noticed? Nah, I don't think I will.
    0:36 and 1:03 All the more reason to record a doctor's visit. I recently came across an app that might interest you. Here's a video about it from Simply Hannah on YouTube:
    3:24 Just make a habit of asking.

    Do you know who should watch this video? Violin MD and Dr. Mike.

  6. I've been dealing with many of these exact annoyances today!!! I got so frustrated I was ready to cry. Thanks for the laughs! ๐Ÿ˜‚

  7. Bro, accurate. ๐Ÿ’ฏ
    Iโ€™m at a loss for words at the accuracy of this. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ’€๐Ÿ’€๐Ÿ’€

  8. Also trying to leave a message for your doctor and the nurse says โ€œAlright Iโ€™ll send your message over to them right awayโ€
    and they never do

  9. Izzy you forgot about the part where they send you to the right extension but then you get asked to leave a voicemail with your name, DOB,reason for the call, and phone number ๐Ÿ˜ญ

  10. This is my life! Great video! Made me smile. Big fan of you and your videos. Youโ€™d make Jaquie proud. โค๏ธ

  11. 2:38 I would love to see a doctors office waiting room with a pool? If I cold find one of those I'd be shore to sign up for them even if they were not in network. I could only imagine what the doctors office would be like after being called back? I guess when it's all said and done I guess having a pool in the waiting room and all of the dropped calls with having to ask for permission to leave somehow balances out the extra hassles of going to the doctor?

  12. So funny and true. But don't forget the fact that when the doctor finally comes into your visit it lasts 5 minutes. And the doctor always knows more about you than you do. So frustrating.

  13. Also,
    doctor- โ€œthis set of bloodwork came back normal, you are perfectly healthy! Yay!โ€
    You- ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿฅต๐Ÿคฎ๐Ÿ˜‘ oh sure

  14. But when I worked on a pharmacy call center people would really call in when it was an emergency asking if they could talk to the pharmacist when they should have went to the hospital lol

  15. All of that is so true. I can totally relate. It's nice that you can laugh at it. Sometimes I get so aggravated.

  16. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ so true.. Iโ€™m in Australia and it all happens here except itโ€™s call 000 not 911 ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  17. You are so hilarious and this had us in stitches!! You are so right though ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคช๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  18. Haha, the multiple extensions before finally reaching the right Dept,, and then youโ€™re disconnected!!! AHHHH!!๐Ÿ˜ฉ

  19. This video was absolutely hilarious. Thank you for making this๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  20. Omg this is so true oh and by the way I've finally been diagnosed with eds but the thing is I'm only 12 and at the moment it's that bad they don't know what to do ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™„

  21. I'm so glad I'm not the only one who isn't sure what to do at the end of the appointment ๐Ÿ˜‚
    The doctor will leave and I'm sitting in the room like… do I just walk out? I always feel like I'm leaving the restaurant before paying for my food haha

  22. Uuuuhhhhh. Yup. Can pretty much telate to alll of those fun things of life as a chronic illness person, with ten million specialists- and omg- yes Iโ€™ve had the orthotics issue!!! How insane is that??!! I mean, does any eds-er have only one foot thatโ€™s flat??!!! ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  23. hi Izzy. Here's another person who switched to a carnivore diet and saw improvement in her EDS

    and another person

    Hope you look into this. I think it really helps by eliminating all foods that can worsen symptoms.

    Also vitamin C is needed for collagen and on the carnivore diet vitamin C requirements are much lower so it's probably more available for collagen instead of other uses.

  24. My mother went through the same thing to get to the right doctor to make an appointment.
    Dealing with doctors you are tested especially if youโ€™re different with a doctor that doesnโ€™t listen to you.
    I did a video about how as a patient there are ways to make sure the doctor treats you the way you expect to be treated – with respect.
    This video is funny in its truth.

  25. I made an emergency appointment with my urologist one time. They told me to come in the next day and to arrive 15 minutes before the appointment so there was enough time for me to get a scan done.

    I arrived 30 minutes early. My urologist's PA was 45 minutes past the appointment. And there wasn't enough time left for the scan.

    It was a Friday, so she told me to return on Monday. I fired them on the spot, and walked out immediately. I also demanded that I not be charged a copay. They said they waived it.

    I am still being sent a bill for a copay and it has been monthsss since this happened.

    I have so many other horror stories. I'll save those for another day.

  26. Hahahhah everything!!! But especially the checking out part ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ
    You also forgot to mention the very, very long wait in the uncomfortable waiting room ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ

  27. At my last nightmare appointment I went there for stomach pain and a few RX refills and she told me I'd have to reschedule to discuss the stomach pain because we were out of time. Then she went on to tell me all the ways she could be contacted and how she always gets back to patients when she's on call. As I was leaving she goes, "oh you are diabetic?" (She had been reading orders from my diabetic DR and didn't realize.) I got home and looked up the RX she gave me and it causes dehydration and mentioned it was not recommended for patients with diabetes. I just want to know there are still doctors out there that actually still care for their patients.

  28. This is so true! Lol! We have to laugh at it or I may break down and cry sometimes! I loved hearing this! Wonderful video!๐Ÿ’›

  29. So true. Also, at the end of the appointment they ask you to wait in the room for your prescriptions and FORGET YOU'RE THERE! Once, after telling me to wait she said it could be a few minutes that they are short staffed… okay no problem… half an hour later I poked my head out of the room and the nurse that was running down the hall, says ,"What,? Why are you still here? ". Huh, you've got to be kidding me!
