So frustrated

Nov 28, 2017 11:30 AM

So a few months ago I got married, moved halfway across the country and changed insurance. So I went to my new podiatrist today. I'm positive she wasn't listening to me, she obviously didn't look at my records from my last podiatrist, and she told me to get custom orthotics, which I've had before and didn't help. I'm going to my pcm tomorrow and demanding a referral to somewhere else. Preferably an orthopedic doctor. After my appointment I called my mom crying cause every new doctor I go to tells me something different. My husband is also royally peeved. I just need emotional support. I don't have any pain pills at all, and I feel like my needs weren't met. Navy doctors suck.

I'm sorry this happened to you. It's good that you're going to get a referral for another doctor, hopefully they will listen to you.

It is a shame that good hearted people like the people on here ho through so much and it is like the doctors dont know the same research and dont listen to their patients. They dont listeb to their us and its heart breaking. We trust these doctors with our lives. I wish there was a better way to get new information and studies to all doctors. Not just ones who do regular research themselves in their own time.

Spidermanrosie: maybe doctors should be required to go to a 7 day seminar of the latest research once a year.
