Dr B and Dr U both hate having to deal with my medical group and their referral process. Today I changed my medical group and primary care provider.
Usually I would not worry too much about this kind of change. however, now that I rely on replacement hormones since I had RAI to kill off my thyroid concerns me. My current primary understands that I can not take regular replacement and have to take a dissected thyroid tar placement. This requires a different type of blood testing then just TSH. It has taken me 2 years of dealing with my primary to finally start running the correct labs.
A national endocrine society just stated that blood testing for thyroid patients is TSH only. Well that will tell them only that I am taking replacements and not what is actually happening with the hormones. I guess the saving grace is I just had a blood test this morning so I will be able to show my new doc the testing that I usually get. This should be interesting.
At least Dr U and Dr B will be happy with me being associated with their medical group. Their should be no excuse on getting referrals in a timely fashion.
Crossing my fingers I just did the right thing. Starting feb 1st I have a new medial group, and on feb 4th I meet my new doc.
