Janet Warnes, due to be fitted with a hearing aid, first saw him in 2002.
She had to wait until last month for her second appointment - and arrived at the hospital to learn the consultant, a Mr Fraser, died in 2002.
Retired VDU operator Janet, 68, of Leeds, said: "I was starting to think I might be dead before I finally saw a doctor, but I never expected him to be."
She may now go private after being told it could take two more years to see another specialist at Leeds General Infirmary.
The hospital blamed a computer error for sending her an appointment letter. A spokesman said: "We are extremely sorry for any embarrassment or distress."

Only you have the power to save Toby.
Toby is the cutest little bunny on the planet. Unfortunately, he will DIE on November 6th, 2006 if you don.t help. I rescued him several months ago. I found him under my porch, soaking wet, injured from what appeared to be an attack from an alley cat. I took him in, thinking he had no chance to live from his injuries, but miraculously, he recovered. I have since spent several months nursing him to health. Toby is a fighter, that.s for sure.
Unfortunately, on November 6th, 2006, Toby will die. I am going to eat him. I am going to take Toby to a butcher to have him slaughter this cute bunny. I will then prepare Toby for a midsummer feast. I have several recipes under consideration, which can be seen, with some pretty graphic images, under the recipe section.
I don’t want to eat Toby, he is my friend, and he has always been the most loving, adorable pet. However, God as my witness, I will devour this little guy unless I sell 100,00 copies of my book, Save Toby: Only you have the power to save toby. You can help this poor, helpless bunny’s cause by purchasing the book online at Amazon.com by clicking HERE, or by purchasing merchandise at the Savetoby.com online store.
Here is the current status of donations for Toby, as of June 30th, 2005. Thanks to everyone who has contributed!

I thought Horsey captured the Republican Jesus perfectly, even better than the General, so I wanted to post it for posterity.
I'm not making fun of this.

The cemetery offers an alternative to traditional burial methods
A company in Victoria state has been given permission to open a vertical cemetery, where bodies are buried standing up and without coffins.
It is an environmentally-friendly and cheaper option, says Tony Dupleix, director of the firm Palacom.
Once stable, the site - in Derrinallum, 180 km (110 miles) from Melbourne - would be turned into grazing land.
"When you die, you are returned to the earth with a minimum of fuss and with no paraphernalia that would affect the environment," said Mr Dupleix.
"You are not burning 90kg of gas in a crematorium and there's no ongoing maintenance costs."
The vertical cemetery - believed to be the first in Australia - has been approved by Victoria's state planning officials.
The bodies will be transported from the mortuary in Melbourne in batches of up to 15 to reduce costs, said Mr Dupleix.
Each body will be encased in a body bag and buried in an individual three-metre deep (10 ft) hole.
Burials will cost around A$1,000 (US$780).
Anne Jamieson, of the Darlington Cemetery Trust, which will manage the cemetery, said it would prove an attractive option for some.
"If you are interested in the environment, it's beautiful land on the Western District plains facing Mount Elephant," she said.
"Some people will think it's great but other people might prefer a traditional burial."
A German inventor has come up with a novel way for relatives coping with the grief of losing a loved one to convey their feelings to the departed. The "Phone Angel," a long-life battery powered cell phone device, allows those in mourning to have contact with the deceased when personal pain, distance or disability prevents them from attending the final resting place.
