I can't obviously comment on the details as I don't know your specific diagnosis or condition, but here are some thoughts.

It was NOT proper or ethical behaviour on the part of that receptionist. (b) if you were ill enough to need 10 days in hospital, it's likely that it would be wise for you to see the doc after you leave hospital. And he might well want to see you in less than a month-and-a-half ( presumably you only have his receptionist's word for it that this would really be the earliest appointment available ).
