My husband and I are so looking forward to this new beginning with our new doctor. It’s been two years of frustration with our previous one.
It’s confirmed today that we in fact have made a good decision to change our primary physician. We felt unsure how we would be looked upon when doing this. I simply explained that there was a communication problem with our previous doctor and that some of our concerns just didn’t seem to be taken seriously.
I didn’t want to give a list of all of the issues, as we felt that wouldn’t be proper to do so, and the new doctor seemed okay with our explanation.
It’s been such a stressful time switching, as in Ontario one needs to ‘de-register’ with the current doctor before looking for a new one, but I’ve gone into that before.
It was encouraging that when I explained currently of having this weakness and dizziness, and that I felt it had to do with some of the medications that I was taking, that the doctor gave me a requisition for some blood tests, and said to stop one of the meds until I see her in a couple of weeks. I was actually taken seriously, and not just told to take some more protein in the morning such as yogurt. That’s what my other doc said. I’ve been feeling like this for almost 6 months now, and was getting near the end of my rope…. so to speak.
When my husband told her about one of the serious issues he was experiencing, and that nothing was being suggested to help, the doctor asked if he would like a second opinion from another specialist, and also sent him for some tests.
I post this just to let those who were wanting to know if and when we finally got a new doctor, as it has been quite a time getting to this point… finally! Thanks for thoughts and prayers
