It's funny, you know, because they will sure as heck contact you if they need to be paid!! Otherwise, there is an extreme lack of communication. I had a GI at the Naval Medical Center San Diego (Balboa Hospital) who was awesome about staying in contact. He ordered any and all necessary tests for me, plus he would actually call me (himself!) to see how I was doing and how I was handling any changes. He is by-far the best doc I've had thus far. All I ask is that the doctor actually knows about your history and who you are when you show up for your appointment. Also, it would be nice if they listened to you.... really LISTENED! Obviously, I have a chip on my shoulder, but it's just not right!
