I would just say doctor appointment. They shouldn’t ask you to specify.

“I have a doctor’s appointment tomorrow.”
They don’t need to know why.

Agree with PPs. It’s none of their business just say a medical emergency or dr appt

@mrshoneybee: I sometimes say “girl problems” to my male boss, and he leaves me the hell alone LOL.
He usually doesn’t bother asking, though… he is a nice, polite kinda guy. Usually when I say “doctor appointment” it’s fine… you don’t need to give a reason.

@mrshoneybee: You don’t have to disclose why you are going to the doctor. Like previous poster said, tell your boss you have a medical matter that needs to be tended to immediately. Then have your doctor provide you with a non-specific doctors note so that you have proof that you went to the doctor in the afternoon just in case your boss requests one. Feel better, ut infections are terrible and serious because if they are not tended to the infection can go up to your kidneys.

@mrshoneybee: Can you call or email your boss now to give her a heads up before tomorrow morning? Maybe that will make you feel better about the last minute issue.
But seriously, medical emergencies are always last minute so don’t worry about it. Your health is important. If you’re sick you can’t work, so you need to take care of yourself. Your boss should be able to understand that.

Agree with PPs, you shouldn’t have to provide more info than Docs Appt!! I hope you feel better, UTIs suck!!

“Medical emergency.” If more info is requested, “It’s won’t be serious if I’m seen today, but it’s definitely of an urgent nature.”
