I have orders for P+7 blood draws to measure progesterone and estrogen. They are from Dr. St.igen. I used the portal to email her asking if I could use the order and would she kindly call me with the results. That's all I wanted and I thought it was a simple request. And now I'm reminded why I quit her and NaPro technology. This was her response:
[ATC], You should ask the RE who is treating you to order and interpret the blood test for you - he/she is the one who should be monitoring what your response to the medications are. In general, I don't do hormone testing or interpretation except for patients undergoing NaProTechnology treatments. Sincerely, Dr. Sti.genNow, I understand the overall message. She's not the prescribing doctor for the drugs I'm on, so I should get blood draw orders from that doctor. Cool. Great. But the second sentence I took as a sort of "F*ck U, you're not doing NaPro, so no assistance for you." I would have appreciated a little more customer service like, "Let me know if there's anything I can do for you," or "Let me know if you have any questions." I'm hurt by the "I don't do this [full stop; end of story.] She did operate on me, I did try her NaPro treatments. They just didn't work and didn't get me pregnant. I'm not bitter about it but it sure sounds like she's bitter I'm not doing NaPro anymore. I haven't done anything inconsistent with Church teaching but if it's not in the right box, she doesn't want anything to do with me. The Christian love is palpable.
