I’ve got to get around to calling some new doctors! I have some numbers but I have to run them by my folks to see if they agree that they are good choices. I’ve never had to choose a doctor for general wellness before :S 3 months ago

I usually visit my acupuncturist for any and everything, but want to have a GP, just in case. Oh, and to get referrals if needed, since we are on an HMO plan. This doctor has reviews that say she is compassionate and bright, and shares her practice with an acupuncturist. I like that she will be open-minded toward alternative or natural treatments.
Though I’m feeling quite well, a doctor recently suggested that when I become a new patient somewhere, I should schedule a first visit just to meet and discuss family medical history. I’m glad I listened, because the wait list for such visits with this new doctor is two months. I will be pleased to already be in her system if I do get sick and need a quick appointment down the road. 4 months ago
I just turned 21 and I realize: I need to have my first PAP smear soon! Noooooooo-
Anyway, I got a list of names. Going to be choosing a new doctor soon before I need anything else done. 9 months ago
- have located a new women’s doctor and scheduled an appointment for this month
- have filled out the paperwork and paid for my medical records at old doctor, now waiting the 15 business days for my copy
- still should locate a GP and change my insurance card but that is not urgent 9 months ago
And I think she is someone I could feel more comfortable with. It seems like the office is a bit more efficient than other Dr’s offices I have been to (which is a plus!). 13 months ago
So I am searching for a new MD. I have an appointment set up with a new Dr. this month for a “meet/greet” appointment.
I have an OB/GYN, but I want a general practicioner, too. 13 months ago
I saw my new doctor yesterday for the second time. I wasn’t so sure about her the first time, but I really like her! She was really patient and warm, and didn’t rush me. I’ve had a chance to talk to her about all sorts of things that were concerning me.
She is sending me to a dermatologist to assess a few scars I have on my back, and she is also sending me to a dietician to help me plan my diet. Normally I’d have to pay a LOT of money to see a dietician, but she told me there would be no charge for an initial consultation and a follow-up visit with the hospital’s dietician. Isn’t that great?!
We also reviewed my lab results, and I am slightly deficient in iron. My ferritin is 45, which isn’t really low, but low enough that it could be causing my fatigue. She is going to give me some iron supplements to try, but we both forgot about the prescription after my appointment! I left a message for her, but I might just buy some regardless.
SO happy to have found a GOOD doctor. I think it’s really important to have a physician you can trust. 14 months ago
I moved over 5 years ago, and it’s been a struggle finding a decent doctor who is accepting new patients. 17 months ago
I had to find a new doctor after moving, and kind of by luck found a good one. 22 months ago
