Thanks, scorpio! Actually, at least one that she recommended is a very reputable LLMD around here, (KC metro area) but as I said, I'm on a long waiting list for him. As for out of network, that's what I've been battling with w/ BCBS. They will not approve an out of network doc, (or labs) if there is one in network that I can see. My plan is HMO.
I am also concerned about all I've heard about ins companies and LLMDs. So this is essentially a planned route I'm taking. I am not well, but am not as ill as many on here. So I want to start w/ BCBS recommendations and proceed w/ protocol, so that if I do not receive proper care, I will have a case. Financially, I have no choice at this time.
I am also concerned because of the publishing of info on Dr R here, who has supposedly overdiagnosed people and put them on exhorbitant treatment plans that ins won't cover.
I believe we have to tread very carefully here and I'm doing all the research I can, so I will be somewhat informed w/ whatever Dr I see. Already, my PCP was not able to answer my questions on Quest's WB, because he knew nothing of the band and I knew what it meant.
I do want to make sure that BCBS is not purposely sending me down a dead end, that's why I'd like to know about the 2 Drs left on the list. I'll look at turnthe corner and appreciate this advice! Thanks!
