planning on changing doctors
« on: October 24, 2010, 10:59:24 AM »
I like my doctor. However, his staff is another matter, epic failure springs to mind. All very cute, and seems the cuter they are the dimmer the bulb.

My prescriptions for the two anibiotics I take have ran out, adherance issues beginning tomorrow. Repeated phone calls with no response. Got a little from one of my speacialty pharmacies asking for help in getting the doctors office to communicate with them. I've been without a sleeping pill for over a month, sure glad this fiasco hasn't happened with Atripla yet.

They dragged their feet with my short term disabillity claim to the point that my employer had to get involved, that was the heighth of embarassment. Stress, frustration, hopeless, all appropriate adjectives to use here.

United Healthcare won't let me log on to check the provider list. Asking for ID numbers I don't have, their help feature is disabled. Looking for a brick wall now, to go bang my head against for awhile. That'll at least get something done.

Mostly venting here. Been depressed last few days, not sure why. Feeling like I'm getting sick, scared because I'm out of Bactrim and Septra.

Can anyone suggest a good ID doctor in the Atlanta area? The Infectious Diseases Clinic at Emory University seems like a no brainer, anyone with firsthand reviews of them?

thakn you
