My neuro feels that I need to be seen by a neuro. Very soon.
And she has no appointments available til January.
So we're transferring my care to another doctor, one who's new and just starting to build up her practice... she can see me next week.
This one's more of a generalist, whereas my current one is very specialized - epilepsy in women of childbearing age. The new one is just epilepsy in general. Which may be good, as my current doctor seems to be very general in her prescriptions; maybe someone fresher out of med school, with a broader scope, will be more open to alternate solutions.
One can hope.
I need a referral from my primary care doctor. Isn't that stupid? I mean, I'm switching doctors within the same damn office. I told them that Dr. P. said to go to Dr. L. They don't care. I need a referral. So I talked to a very nice person at the general clinic, my referral request has been marked as urgent, and they'll ask Dr. L's office to call me as soon as they get the referral so I can make a fuckin' appointment.
I hate HMOs.
Still. Hopefully Dr. L. will still have that appointment available next week by the time my referral gets there.
