INFRASTRUCTURE vs. TALENT

Some months  back, Diane and I saw a gifted young doctor speak at one of the MS discussion meetings at Hope Hotel at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base (read: FREE MEAL!), and she decided to take a chance on yet another neurologist for her Multiple Sclerosis.

She has the worst kind, Primary Progressive, and there is no medication as yet, so the docs really can not help her, unless they are very creative and a bit courageous. Not usually so… Anyway, she started calling his office last April. Left messages, left messages, nothing. No callbacks. Finally reached someone, STILL no callbacks. After much delay and aggravation she secured an appointment with the doc for Tuesday this week. Got up at six-thirty, in the van at seven-thirty and buckling up for the drive to see the new doc in Columbus — phone rings. Doc’s office canceled the appointment and let it slip that Diane STILL was not set up to see the doc we asked for months ago, even though it had been confirmed repeatedly since.

She had been scheduled to see a different doc, after all that, and that doctor was not going to be in after all.

So finally she has given up on the gifted young doctor. Instead we went on to Columbus and spent the day at the Columbus Museum of Art and visited with our fabulous grandson, Jake Mulkey, who will graduate OSU soon after three years of study. Smart kid, there. Not that we are biased…

The point being — if there is one — is this: you can study hard, work hard, have lots of talent and THEN be torpedoed by your office staff, your professional infrastructure. And probably you will never be aware it happened!
