So I head to physical therapy this morning and my therapist is 45 minutes late. I then head to a scheduled doctors appointment that I have and I get into the office on time, but the doctor doesn't actually get into the room until after I have waited nearly 90 minutes.
I finally meet with my doctor, which lasts about 25 minutes, and head to Goodyear to get my tires aligned, balanced and an oil change. They start work on my car with me thinking the cost is going to be $185, but apparently there was some unknown damage And if I'm lucky my final bill will only be $500. Worst case scenario given to me is $1000. Unreal!
Not sure it's worth wasting time to have someone else look at my vehicle because I trust the guys at my Goodyear shop!
Moral of the story, don't hit a curd hard on a foggy night!!!!

Sorry to hear Scott. I hope tomorrow is a much better day for you.
sure it wasn't a foggy brain, that hit that curb?
had my own auto repair business back in the 70s and found out it was very hard to make money while being an honest mechanic. was offered a job at a very large car dealership making a shitload of money with the stipulation of leaving any honesty badge at the front door when i walked in- i turned it down and became a salesman???????????
GET A SECOND OPINION without telling the second opinion shop what the first shop said, then compare. in this economy you REALLY have to beware.
i had a buddy that was an investigator for the state(CA) solely doing auto repair shops/dealerships, and he said about 8 of 10 almost always will try to screw you over= problems that aren't there.
in the AM i will tell you about my best friends Toyota experience 3 to 4 years ago and how he refuses to buy Toyota any longer.
I would have said something to both the PT and doctor. There is no excuse for waiting 45 minutes for a late PT. I would have read both the riot act. I think too often that these guys get a free pass because most patients are intimidated by them....especially the physician. 90 minutes is unacceptable for any physician. I made it a point of trying to see my patients on time. I was probably a little more OCD about it than most. Your time is valuable and that needs to be recognized by your healthcare providers.
I would also get a second opinion with regard to your vehicle.

I don't know, I understood it that SS got a hard on
Hey, you created me. I didn't create some loser alter-ego to make myself feel better. Take some responsibility!
I did get a second opinion and also lucked out. Out the door for $450. Car is like brand new!
But that doctor and PT crap ticked me off, especially because I had other obligations yesterday.
I agree, as a PT (can't speak for any physicians), I tell all of my patients during their first appointment that my time is just as valuable as their time, and I can honestly say, I have never been more than 5 minutes late for an appointment. 45 minutes late for an appointment is unprofessional and unacceptable, hopefully there was a legitimate reason for the tardiness.
Scott, I have no idea why you're seeing a PT or your overall experience with PT, but I hope they provide you with professional care in the future and hopefully this particular experience was only an anomaly and not the norm.
