Finding a New Doc.

Nope, not a new document.
Knowledged healer.
Experienced in patient care.

If you've perused this blog at all, or are blessed enough to know me personally, it won't take long for you to figure out I'm not graceful.
Never have been. Probably never will be.

I've experienced more than my fair share of health issues.
I've also spent a fair bit of time in the health field as a provider.

I was fortunate as a child to stay with a primary care provider for a number of years.
They knew me well enough to know that I was not the whiny-crybaby type, and if I made the appointment, it was for good cause.

I left that practice due to practicality. It was not practical for me to drive 40-45 miles one way when I didn't feel well.

I started seeing a physician recommended to me by a co-worker.
I have a sense of humor. So did he. Or so it appeared by his rantings and ravings online.

His personality, bedside manner, and general practice as a physician left much to be desired.

Fed up with my experience, and being told that I could not change physicians within the ORGANIZATION, I had heard some positive musings about the primary care physician I am currently choosing to see.

However, after several very negative encounters, I am now on the hunt for a new doctor.
I'm thinking about sending out letters to them to determine if they are an appropriate candidate.

What are your thoughts?
