My health insurance charges a premium to see a specialist, substantially more than to see a GP.
I'm considering switching to my GP's care for follow up PSA checks, since it seems nothing exciting is happening anyway. If some trend happens (and I surely know how to look for trends!), then I could go back to an MO. It has never been a problem to get appointments with an MO, or a urologist.
I'm curious if others have done this.
