Hi Cat, I'm Cat(z4) too and I've been wondering if someone would take this pain for a while. So far, no takers. I would soooo not go to this particular new doctor. First of all, he's very dismissive, and secondly he sounds really full of himself. Just because he was a second opinion doesn't mean he has to be the last! That invitation is one I would R.S.V.P. "no thanks"! No, not literally say no to him, just not go back to him. For a doctor to demean another doctor is a very disturbing thing to me. That in itself would give me the insentive to say, no way! Try the poke me doctor, she may turn out to be the right ingredient in this mixture we call life. Please keep us filled in o.k?
I'm called Cat, but as there are few other Cat's on here, I put the number of cats I have and combined it to spell out Catz4
