Hi Nicecy22 Welcome to HW . I veto that it can be tiresome at times going to DR's but for me I guess it is a necessary thing. Do you go to your DR.'s often? How is your crohn's doing you were very young to get crohn's at 13. lol gail

I agree with you that it is a pain to see so many doctors. I was diagnosed at 18 and am now 50. I have a therapist, GI, my family doc and a Rheumy on board. I see most of them every few months, so I understand being sick of them. But as gachrons stated they are a necessary evil for us.

Im in your boat as well. I love that you see your primary just to get referred to someone else. I go on vacation in July, get back, have a dermatologist appointment on Monday and a gyno appointment on Tuesday. Any day now I will have a dentist appointment to get my new retainer. I worry about how much work I miss but don't normal people at least see a regular doctor, gyno, dentist, and eye doctor regularly?

I know what you mean! Seems like I see a doctor at least twice a month! Tiresome in the extreme..

Hi Just thought I'd throw in that one of my problems is I live in a small place and the Dr's come and go so much that it is a struggle to just get a GP and changing and starting over again with a GP is a frustrating thing. If a person doesn't like the care there getting there's not much help in that situation. I am in a no GP situation again gail
