I highly recommend that you get copies of all your records, MRI's, etc.  I would not wait until March.  In many cases, you can call in the request and tell them what time you'll be by to pick them up.  In the meantime . . . vent away : )

Sorry to hear that you are having to wait so long for your test results. I had the same thing happen to me .The wait time for me was one month and totaling too long .... TMJ , I don't know if I would be able to do three months.
   I made an appt.with pcp and told his office staff to contact neuro office so pcp would have results on hand when I saw him.  You could call any of your other docs , tell them you are having more problems , which you are , and need to get in soon. Ask the nurse to get the test results that YOU think are pertinent, MRI and BTS. , so the doctor will have the information he will need in order to better evaluate you.  Its just a thought , something else to try if calling doesn't work

The very best of luck .  Vent all you want , this is a very frustrating place to be in , I wholeheartedly sympathize with you , and send prayers

P.S.  Sometimes we just have to get inventive .

WOW. I agree. They need to come up with a better system for peace of mind between doctors visits. I can't believe you have to wait that long. Bum deal.

Just curious...what measures do you take to alleviate some of the pain?

Keep calling in, too. Sometimes there is a cancellation and you can slip in sooner.
