Doctor search

I did some more research into doctors today. Found out that to see a specialist I either have to see a Fallon doctor (none of which are close) or get a referral from my Primary Care Physician (doctor with whom we are very unhappy). So my options are: get a new primary care physician (whom I might or might not like) and then get a referral; go to somewhere far away to see someone I might not like; or try to get a referral from the doctor that we know we are unhappy with. The other problem with the new-PCP problem would be that they might want to see me before giving me a referral, thus adding yet another thing that must be scheduled three weeks in advance (time husband needs to take off from work) to a very cramped time frame. Because I would really like this resolved before I ovulate.

However, the Fallon customer service representative was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. I have never been anything but pleased with Fallon's customer service. Even when they really cannot help me, they give me the impression that they wish they could.

Pardon my ignorance, but what exactly *is* a Fallon doctor?

A doctor who works at a Fallon clinic. Because I have Fallon insurance.

Sorry I wasn't clearer on that

Still praying -

I really, really, really dislike finding new doctors. Particularly doctors who need to do more than prescribe antibiotics. It is a difficult process.

I'm glad they were at least kind.
