I haven't been calling doctor's staffs "desk dragons" for nothing.
GOOD FOR YOU, Tsitodawg!!! More patients need to do just as you have done - except not wait so long to do so. I'm sure you've been a blessing for this gastro's other patients. If not, I certainly hope he has other patients w/the good common sense to do just as you have done.
TWO gold stars to you!!! And prayers that the Cimzia works and brings you relief and remission!!!! (((hugs)))
Some people are like Slinkies... Not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.
