Hi Chris I am so upset with doctors right now. Yes I have tried to get help from endo specilists, they either are not seeing new patients or they dont take my insurance and want alot of money up front. My pain doctor just told me yesterday that he cant do anymore for me either and that I need to find a primary care doctor because he is not even going to refill my perscriptions any more. So here I am out in the cold and on my own once again. I do not have even a idea about were to go now. What kind of a doctor do I see now? What kind of a doctor can find out if the problem is something other than what they have thought it was all this time? I would be glad to hear any ideas you or any others have about what to do next. Thanks Denise
