I remember a recent posting about horrible doctors. I wanted to give a shout out about my GI and GP who are really terrific. I'm between insurance and they have been so kind to me.
During my recent appt with my GP where he said we are going to have to look at proably bigger guns as far as RX to control my symptoms - six months of prednisone is enough!, I said I really hate this disease. I had a tear or two in my eye. He looked at me, tearing up himself and then gave me a hug.
I quickley tried to control myself as I didn't want him to cry! He is so empathetic and attentive. There are good ones out there!My GI doc is the oppotiste ... clinical and short .. but attentive too and smart. They balance each other out and work together for my health. I'm a lucky gal!
