New doctor

Today was a first consultation with my new general practitioner (GP).

I a very good HIV specialist that I see through a hospital out-clinic, but in Australia we need a GP for certain types of referrals to specialists ad other health services. My last GP was a nightmare to communicate with, there were so many stuff-ups over the last few years.

So I found a new Dr via a recommendation of another long term-survivor and it looks like I've hit absolute gold. The GP is also an experienced HIV doctor. I wasn't expecting any doctoring  first visit, just establishing contact... but 45 minutes later I emerged with referrals to some imageing tests for some chronic pain, and ... a big hug!

I certainly hadn't expected that.

A doctor/patient relationship is an absolutely necessary, so congrats on finding one that meets your expectations.

Following on from the new Dr, I'm seeing a new physiotherapist for my shoulder pain. I have the second visit 9.00 am tomorrow, I've been a good boy and done my homework but I think this'll take a lot of time to work through as I've had this pain for about 5 years.

But it is very nice to have an action plan and some hope that things will get better.
