Wife was told in Gyn-Oncology waiting room that she would die.

On the morning of July 6, 2015, while my wife and I were waiting for her monthly app't with her surgeon, one of the surgeon's assistants told Beth - my wife - that "there was nothing else they could do." In the waiting room. Loud enough for the few people around, receptionist included. Carcinomatosis to the liver. Quote: "What do you want? You fought a valiant fight." When Beth finally good to see her surgeon, she wanted to be left alone with him. Meanwhile, same assistant expounded to me in the hallway, right next to the room where Beth was, in great detail, how it was written all over Beth's face that she had perhaps only a few weeks to live. Quote: "I've seen it before." This was the same person who, during one of our early app'ts in 2014, mentioned how, 30 years ago, they had 20some ovarian cancer patients, and, after a year, only one was still alive. The same person who told Beth on the phone when her CA 125s were rising: "Well, those numbers are pretty high." The same person who told Beth on the phone that, if things were worse, she wouldn't be calling her, but the surgeon would." Next to no compassion for Beth. Just high-handedness, jadedness, at the end an almost perverse pleasure to tell Beth that she would die. Beth, who had been diagnosed late February 2014, and had had her surgery on 7/8, did die on July 15, 2015, four days after her 55th birthday, nine days after being asked "What do you want?" - in the public waiting room. - There has not been one day since that I haven't thought of those exchanges. Whatever happened to Hippocratic Oath # 6?

I agree...I sit here in a room have waited 40 hours to see a doctor while my wife suffers in pain! The doctors don't care about McGee, go to presby!

Ultrasound Appointment

My doctor recently requested that I get another ultrasound done to check on my baby's growth. I scheduled one at Magee where I had been before and would be delivering at. When I arrived the recommended 15 minutes prior to my scheduled time I was welcomed at the desk and signed in. After waiting about 25 minutes I went to ask the receptionist how far behind they were running. She told me about 30 minutes behind, which she had failed to mention upon my arrival. By the time I actually was seen it was over an hour and 15 minutes after my originally scheduled appointment. My entire ultrasound was done in less than 15 minutes but at that point I was then caught in over an hour of traffic and had to make arrangements for missing part of work. The parking was also a mess. The meter dispensed tickets despite the fact that there were no available parking spots in the parking garage and the other parking lot was closed for construction. There were no signs anywhere to notify the public, but the pay station next to the garage was also out of order, forcing you to return into the hospital to pay at the other pay station. The whole thing seemed chaotic and disorganized. If using UPMC Magee for imaging services I suggest getting the earliest appointment you can to cut back on these issues. I never thought my appointment, which was 2.5 hours before my work day, would end up costing me the time, inconvenience, and money from missing work. Always ask the receptionist if they're on time or behind since they aren't forthcoming with that information!
