He had given her the 2mth, 4mth, 6mth and 12mth injections. His nurse gave her the Meningicocous vaccine -- again she cried when she saw him.
From about 8mths onwards whenever we take a trip to see the Doctor, she is ok when we walk in and see's the Receptionists, but as soon as she see's the Dr she just cries.
I have taken her there when I have only needed to see him, but even then she's cried.
She had to see him before her 12mth shots as she had tonsilitis -- cried even then -- when there were no injections given.
We hadnt seen him for about 8weeks until this week when she developed an upper respiratory viral infection..... On this occasion he took us into another consult room.... there were toys and things to took at. Her grandmother also came with us.
However as soon as he brought out his ear examining thingy she started howling/screaming. (very unusual for her).
Has anyone else experienced similar episodes with their children and if so, does it still occur. Or if it no longer happens, how long did it last....
I hate to think that she will be crying when she is 20 going to see the doctor.....
Failing that, change GP's but that is becoming increasingly difficult finding a GP that Bulk Bills.!!!!!
