I am moving to south florida (sunrise area) to be closer to family...i am in need of a dr WHO TAKES INSURANCE..I CANNOT STRESS THIS ENOUGH...i know people want to help me others the best care posssible but i am broke, bankrupt and had to stop seein an llmd because i could not longer afford it....even if one gets some reimbursement...i don't have the money upfront
 
anyway...i did a search on the lda website and came up with a few names and also got a name from the lda leader in florida...but that dr is 4 hrs from me (my family told me they can take me to drs appts but only if they are close by because they cannot get off work)
 
so..i know i cannot mention full names but so far i have:
 
dr n. p in sunrise (female..takes insurance)\
 
dr c. c. boca raton (male...hispanic name)
 
dr. M LaP. (male)
 
Dr C (tampa bay area)  male takes insurance but 4.5 hrs from me
 
If anyone knows of anyone else..please let me know or any experiences with them.  I had long term steroids from a spinal cord injury and have never been the same since...my current dr will not do ivs but i am moving anyways.
 
thanks for any info.  I have blue cross blue shield.  And yes, I know the drs who take insurance usually are limited in what they can do treatment wise but it is my only option aside from no treatment at all.

Hi lymebrained, welcome to the board!

As far as I know, the doctor in Fort Lauderdale does not take insurance.  You may want to call to make sure.

lymebrained,

Welcome to the forum! I see 1bitten has already taken care of you:) I just wanted to add that yes, the doctor in Tampa, Dr. C, does take insurance. This is who I will be seeing in the next two weeks.

Hi jaykay,

We don't have a PM feature here. If you go to the "control panel", you can add your email in there and someone will be able to email you some names.

Also, I am seeing a doctor in Florida now. If you would like the name you can email me. Click on my name or the highlighted envelope on the left hand side of this post.
