My Primary Care Physician Dr. Christopher Doan, is amazing. He is also my husbands PCP. He said straight out from the get go that if there is a problem he isn't familiar with he will find someone who is and refer you to them. He is willing to work with other doctors. He puts in the time to really help you. I highly recommend him.
Found it! William Macmaster is a family doc and works at the local urgent care, in Springfield Oregon. If I can mane to switch docs, I'd try to get him. He's open to alternative treatment options (like Quinine) and is actually friendly and doesn't feel like he's just ignoring me.
Indeed, Ferretbandit, that's a huge deal - having a doctor that talks to you, not at you, and actually listens. And having that same doctor be open minded about treatments available is a major bonus 😊.
