Medical Records Reveal

So I’m thinking about changing medical facilities. Perhaps not completely, as a few of the docs and stuff at the place I’m going are okay, but I’ve already had to change for my endocrinology, and I have a rheumatologist that is with the same group as the endo, and neither of them treat at the hospital in Galveston I was going to. Now, my primary care doctor is leaving for another facility too, and that puts me back to having residents are my primary care doctor. Well, that’s fine for someone with no illnesses, but when you have a chart as extensive as mine, puzzle-heart-1440815-1-mit’s really hard to ALWAYS see a new doctor every time you go in, and that’s what happens when I don’t have an attending supervisor as my doctor with a teaching facility.

So I had been looking at changing to a new facility that wasn’t so focused on teaching, so I could get a primary care doctor I could stick with, one who knows my chart and can stay with me throughout the course, instead of feeling like I’m starting over again every six months to a year, when the new rotation starts for the interns and residents.

When I found out my primary care doc was leaving, it really cinched the deal for me to go elsewhere, and if she will have me, I will likely be following her to the new location she will be working at. If not, I’m on the look out for another primary care doc to oversee my care and coordinate care amongst all the specialists. (more…)
