Once you get them your records, it should get much easier to schedule the appt. I know once they recieved my records they called me the next day and said they schedule an appt for me. They have been hard to work with regarding calling me back on test results or returning my calls if I have questions. Even though they were very good on Friday for my test, and the appt I had with the GI doc after the test was great, I still haven't heard from them regarding the biopsy results. They said they'd call Monday or Tuesday to discuss and to figure out medications but no word yet. So that can be frustrating.
Just hang in there, it will be worth dealing with some of the slowness for the end result.
I got a call yesterday from the Mayo. They'd gone through my file and last biopsy reports and I received only good news.
They finally received all my paperwork and I've got an appointment with a UC specialist (as they call them) next month. They gave several phone numbers should I need to contact them about
any issue. What I'd love to have is a triage RN I'd talk with and get answers immediately as is the case with my GI doc.
Thank you again for sharing your experience and information, MNBeachgal.
All the best.
