I wanted to change doctors because I had many problems with my old one, like him almost killing me by putting me on too much 6-mp and him not listening to me when I told him I got bad reactions to my pred (diabetes) and 6-mp, but I really liked the clinic and it was recognized for the excellence it had. Anyway, when I talked to the office manager about
switching, I was told that they would prefer that I leave the clinic since the doctors covered for each other and worked closely together. My doctor had only been in practice for a year or two so I'll chalk it up to inexperience. Since I really liked the clinic and it was convenient and my insurance covered them I stayed and decided to grin and bear it since I am in remission anyway. My last checkup my doctor said he was leaving the practice and moving to Boston so I'm now going to go to a partner who I had met when I was in isolation last fall. I really liked him. So I guess good things happen to those who wait.
