When to Worry?

Thank you all so much for your replies. As you can tell I was having a moral challenge on what to do. Some people had to pull some strings to get me into my current GYN/ONC the first time and I just had mixed feelings on what to do. I drive 2- 2 1/2 hours to get to her, so if I have to go that far in any direction to find another opinion, so be it. I'll let you know how the search goes.

When to Worry?

Hi Cindy please please go with your gut feeling i am going thru the same exact thing. My doctor is also supposed to be one of the best in the state, but i dont care who he is i have told him to his face that something is wrong with me. My doctor has actually made smart comments to me like if you still keep me as your doctor so i finally switched without telling him. I changed my primary care doctor to a asian female family practice and in the last month i have had more feed back than i have had from the the other doctor in the past year, i walked in my new doctors office on tuesday she told me i looked very sick and that i should go to the er, since i was so bloated and whatever they seen on the x-ray i know was a lot of gas and black spots, the very next day wednsday my doctors office called me and made an appointment for me to have a ct scan today which is friday i now have peace of mind knowing that something is actually being done. My oncologist office that wasnt handling my concerns called to schedule and appointmentwith the doctor i just told them that my insurance was canceled and that i would call them when it was resolved,so please do what you gotta do for you because that doctor has so many patients apparently she to busy for you and not dealing with your concerns. Also please dont wait to long i am so sick now i dont know whats going to happen to me i could hardly breath my stomach is bloated. Good luck

When to Worry?

Hi, Cindy! I never heard of someone not accepting you for a 'second opinion' because of who your doc is ??! That's just careless and inappropriate for your situation! Most insurances ENCOURAGE a second opinion for things like this!

Think I'd drive 2 1/2 hours easy in the OTHER direction (or to another state!) to another doc! It's your body, your life!... I once had another doc for another medical condition, some time ago, and this doc was rather 'dismissive' to me and not treating me as an individual. I didn't become rude about it or anything, I'm not that type, but something just didn't seem right...I felt uneasy about what had transpired, so I found another doc shortly thereafter...and Guess what?!

Lo and behold...I, in fact, had an issue that needed to be addressed...I was not dismissed. I was listened to! My perseverance in taking care of myself paid off! I'm still here!!

Take care of yourself! Find someone who LISTENS!

Let us know what happens! Don't give up!
