So my family dr did the referral to my OB and the referral didn't go through. Which sadly I'm not shocked about. This is the 3rd referral i have asked her for and it hasn't got to the intended dr. I few years ago I had a MC and she supposedly did a referral then but it didn't go through, they missed the time frame to do a D&C so they think that is where all my fertility issues came from. Then last year I clearly had a swollen toe that had a purple line across it. so it was obviously broken, she stood 3 ft away and said it looks like gout, take this and if it doesn't help see me in 6 wks. I didn't like her answer so I went to the ER. They did an xray and found an Agressive giant cell tumor that was the cause of the break in my toe. I was in the cancer clinic within a week and in surgery within 5 wks from the time they found it. I would get a new dr but she is the only one in town taking patients! please tell me i'm not the only one with a crappy dr.
