As usual great advice from PA and Chutz.....Seriously finding a good Dr. is like everything else in our lives if it doesn't feel right...don't do it! I worked with Dr.'s all my career and when I first started at age 17, I was intimidated, I thought they were so great. After a few years being connected by referring patients or visiting them myself realized they are no better then you and I, some are great and others well.....so take the time to interview a few! I've been where you are and did not settle till I found one that understood, really cared and was open to listening to ME! PA and Chutz are so right this is YOUR choice!
Being approached by the Business Office before an appointment is upsetting no matter what the reason....I take a list with the keynotes I want to discuss, so I don't forget to ask my PMD! My memory is NOT what it used to be, so this helps me so much!
Also, in my opinion a big clue to how the Dr. is will be is his FRONT OFFICE, if they care you know he will care! How you are greeted WILL matter to a GOOD Dr. I had a situation a few months ago and it took 2 days to get a call back, when I had my appt and told my Dr., he said he had heard the same complaint several times that day. The following week when I returned for my re ck, there were several new faces at the Front Desk.....at that appointment he gave me his email address just in case I had the same situation and couldn't get through. I always felt but knew at that moment, this was my best choice for a Dr. for me!
Good luck and keep us posted! Hope you are feeling better!
