Hi, if those who have read my other posts "updated, blah blah" then u will kind know more. First here is my question and then I will explain the sitution. We need a special clinic, we live in Arkansas. Does anyone have any suggestions? Ok now here is what's went on last evening and today. The last paragraph is most relevant to the title
After talking with nurse for imd this is what I remember. She said that other than a viral infection she coudn't figure out what was wrong with him, and that she was sorry she couldn't be of more help. That she wanted to refer him to the neuro in her words "back to where he came from"! She doesn't want to see him anymore! That is so odd, anyone have any ideas. Oh and she still WILL NOT refer big clinic. I mean flat refuses. I said you realize that the neuro isn't interested in being our pcp, that's why she wanted us to see you and that she has told us several times that she won't refer, (but yet she's the one who recommended it) Finally i asked the nurse, "on a personal level, we won't bother you again, but in your opinion what would you do if you were us" she said "on a personal level, in my opinion, I would get a second opinion from a primary care physician." We are left with nothing.....
Then I called Neuro this morning and her office said that she WAS going to make the referral to the scott white clinic. She said it was in Texarcana. She said to call back tomorrow morning and talk with the lady that does the referrals. Well, I got anxious and wanted to find out what the scott white clinic was. Guess what? They don't have one in texarkana. I have looked & looked. The only scott & white places are in central texas! So I got to the scotty white site and go to locations.... again same thing. So I get there number and call them, just to make sure and she said that they don't have one in texarkana.
When the neuro nurse told me about the clinic she said that it was better than UAMS, that neuro doctor preferred scott & white in "texarkana" Well, UAMS is twice as close..... So now, should does any one have any suggestions or comments?
