and it only took 2.5 hours So I get there and walk up to the window to sign in. I ask the lady if she wants my paper and before I could tell her I'm here for a glucose test, she tells me to have a seat. So I do. 45 mins later, she calls me up. I go up, give her my lab paper work from the doctor's office and my insurance card and she says to me kind of ****** "Why didn't you tell me this was a glucose test? I would have given the bottle for you." I said to her "Well, I tried to, but you told me to have a seat, so I did." She looked at me with an annoyed look on her face. Then she asked me if my insurance has changed. I told her No and she then goes on to say "In our system it's billing to TriCare." I said to her "I don't know what to tell you. I've been with the same insurance company since April." She said "Oh well."

This is how the conversation went after:

Her: Are you fasting?
Me: No.
Her: Okay, here is your drink. Come back up when you're done.
*I go sit down*
Her: Kelli, come here please.
Me: Yes
Her: Are you fasting?
Me: No.
Her: You know you need a urine sample, right?
Me: Yep, that was on the paper.
Her: Okay, go sit down and drink your drink.
*I go sit down again*
Her: You have 5 mins to drink that
Me: I know. If you'd let me drink it I will have it done in the 5 min time frame.
*I down the drink, walk up to her and give her the bottle*
Her: Okay, 1:30 will be your blood draw.
Me: Okay.
*I sit back down and she comes over to me with the urine cup*
Her: You have until 1:30 to use this.
Me: Okay, I'm sure it won't be too long before I have to go.

1:35pm I walk up to her and she asks me "You're still here?" Uhh, yeah! I had the glucose test done. So they take me back for my blood draw and I got home around 2:00pm. That was just crazy ridiculous! I really hope I don't have to go for the 3 hour one.

Sheesh. That's lovely. Was this just a lab or your actual doc office? How come you are doing it so early? Did you have gestational diabetes before?

Ugh. I'm definitely not looking forward to doing that again. Last time I had to do the 3 hour test as well. Fingers crossed you don't have to do it!

It was LabCorp. My doctor wanted to me to go early, not sure why. I didn't have diabetes before so I don't know. Maybe because they run in my family, I don't know for sure.

She ended up getting a really ignorant and rude guy who stood there and just called her stupid and a moron. He was rude but Karma... I did feel bad for her and I could see she was having a bad day.
Tinky and annabelpolo like this.

What is with the attitude?? Ahh, I get so annoyed reading this stuff. I don't know what I would do if someone was like this toward me! Glad you got it done and good luck!
