I had been have some issues with my primary doctor this past year. Not wanting to do blood work, trying to prescribe NSAIDs for my knee and back (arthritis), hard time making appts to name a few. The doctor knew that I cannot take NSAIDS due to WLS. Each time she prescribed them, I had to tell her NO, I can't, and explain why. The nurse has it listed on the first page in my chart that the doctor sees, but she still does it. I was time to do blood work back in June, she didn't do it. Her reason, since my blood work turned out ok last year, don't need it for another year. WRONG!!

There were some other issues, but had enough. Started with a new doctor today. First thing out of his mouth,we are doing blood work today. I want u back in 6 weeks for more blood work. You will have blood work every six months. We had a long talk about my WLS. Come to find out, he has several patients that have had either RNY or Lapband. Very knowledgeable. Finally a doctor that is willing to help, and knows what he's doing
 It's a great day to be alive.

Good for you.  I hope you made sure to let the old doc know why you were firing her.

Please note: I AM NOT A DOCTOR.  If you want medical advice, talk to your doctor.  Whatever I post, there is probably some surgeon or other health care provider somewhere that disagrees with me.  If you want to know what your surgeon thinks, then ask him or her.    Check out my blog.

I did. It went over their heads. The doctor I was seeing has moved to another office.

Good for you!  I am sure that took alot of courage to fire your doctor.  Perhaps the fact that the doc you were seeing left the practice was a warning sign.  Weird she didn't want to do bloodwork.  What doctor doesn't want easy money from someone's ins. co?

Your new doc sounds like a winner.   One door closes and another opens! 

Best wishes for good test results and continued success!
