I always ask them to put me in if there is a cancellation. My son was waiting for an appointment for a diagnosis for autism. The wait here for that is 2+ years. We were in in 9 months. Same with his tonsils. 4 months shrunk to 10 days. It's worth a try.
I just KNEW someone would have a good idea for you, Mark!!! Hsmommy, good call.. I've done that myself with decent results and sometimes not at all. Hang in there. Mark.. We'll find other ways to try get you in sooner
Frequent A&E visits for uncontrolled pain... Ringing the surgical dept daily and asking for cancellations!!!... Being friendly but desperate they will keep you in mind when a cancellation becomes available. Goodluck.
That is so frustrating for you. So you are after a neurosurgeon ? Consultations are covered by Medicare . I remember mine asked if I wanted to be treated as private or public . I do have health insurance .
