VENT! Michigan MWLC

So im on a dr "supervised" diet at the Medical Weight Loss Center, I think these are only located in Michigan and Ohio. Well the supervison is done by women in white lab coats, not doctors. The doc comes in once a month talks to you for 5 mins and gives you a script for weight loss pills and sends you on your way. Well one of the lab coats there thinks she knows me because I went to highschool with her kids. Evendently this gives her the liberty to berate me for not comming in 3 times a week for this "supervision" I dont have time to go in 3 times a week!  If they would have given me any information about this 3 times a week crapola I may not of signed up!!! but nope, just give us your money and see you later. My issue is that I was in this program before about 3 years ago and I only came in once a week and never had any issues. I assume I was not given any information this time around because they assumed I knew how to play the game. Well what happens when we ASSume?! Im sorry Im irritated, none of the other lab coats say anything to me, they are nothing but nice when I go to weigh in with them. Its just this ONE! And I think its because she "thinks" she knows me. It is not a "professional relationship" its personal now!


 


Thank you if you actualy read that!!

OHHH that truly sucks!! Have you tried talking to her? Or is it just your not that close to her to talk to her about this?


Personally I would talk with the doctor when you see them next and tell them that one of their employees seem to take it upon themselves to chastise you for not coming in three times a week and that it makes you uncomfortable and don't feel that it is her place to make any comments of such if it is not a problem with them (the dr that is).


Hope things get better. But good job on the weight lose and don't let this discourage you.

Aww! Thanks for even reading that rant ( That i forgot to spell check:)) I went back in today and talked with some one else ( Because she would not allowme to see the dr. this am) and they apologised for her( having herd her yesterday and this morning when she called me to give me some more of her mind!), and said I should never have to deal with that again, that weigh loss is such a sensitive subject that when some one treats you like that it just makes things harder and we don't want to make it any more difficult for you.  I was also told I never have to deal with her again and that they will take care of me! I was soo happy to hear that! They are sooo nice and Im ok again.


And yes I do plan to talk to the dr. the next chance I get.


 


Thanks!!!
