I am loving my new doctor.  First let me update you.....
Moved to Canada 14 months ago.  Finding a dr. here in Calgary is very hard to do.  You don't pick your doctor,  they pick you.   It took 3 months to find one.  She was nothing to write home about, for sure.  She didn't want to help.  Now that I think about it, she has never even examined me in any way.  Not one touch.  She referred me to a specialist with a 2 year wait.
I heard  about a Dr. that was taking new patients.  When I saw her the first thing she wanted to do was blood work.  Wow, this is good!  Went back today.  Blood work all came out normal.  We talked about medications and treatments.  She even said she had been thinking about me and thinking about what would be the best plan of action for me.  It seemed like she really cared.  Then I was telling her about the message I got for  Mother's Day.  It was sooooo good and worked out some of the kinks in my shoulders.  So she gave me a prescription for message therapy so insurance will cover it.  yeah Yeah!!!  I can't even tell you what a relief this is.   I was really worried about getting dumped my doctor or just not getting any help.  I am so thankful.

Hey Doodie...glad you found a good doctor that would see you right away.  I have two Canadian friends that have been on a list for almost a year to have an MRI.  One of them is coming to the states to have it done, and is paying for it herself.  I hope all the people in this country who are thinking socialized medicine is the answer, think twice.  I don't have any health insurance and even I am thinking about the consequences.

Ah... a massage!  Sounds wonderful!
