Your experience with doctors (outside of l&d) sound about like mine. I was stabbed in the arm in a freak running with scossors accident last year and I waited in the ER for almost 4 hours before getting stitches - they didn't even want to give me pain meds until after the doctor had seen me, but I worked at the hospital I was in so I said if you're not going to help me then I'm going home where I can at least take an ibuprofen. That got 'em moving. What's funny is that most of the time it's nurses who are controlling everything.
