    Default I need a decent local doctor any suggestions

    I am trying to find a local regular doctor. In Palm Coast would be nice. Preferably one that I do not need to be interviewed by and then wait to see if he wants me as a patient. Any suggestions? Thank you.

    Does your insurance have a list (maybe on their website) of the doctors in your area that are in network?

    I had one that came highly recommended but I had to be interviewed and I guess I did not pass, I have not heard back and I need to go to the doctor. I do not have time to do a bunch of interviews. Do they have a bad list or something? I went to Medi-quik today but it was standing room only and I would rather die than sit there for hours and risk catching something.

    Call the one that "interviewed" you back, maybe it just fell through the crack.

    I can recommend 2, but it depends on your insurance. One covers BC/BS, the other FHCA.

    I hope you find someone quickly, do you have a specialist who can refer you and get you in with someone?

    When I first knew I was relocating (almost 6 months out), I went to my insurance company's list of providers and without knowing anyone or having recommendations I started calling until I found someone who was taking new patients--I probably called six before I found someone who would give me an appointment. I take Coumadin and have to have an INR test every 4 weeks, so l didn't dare leave my old location before knowing I had an appointment.

    As it turned out, I really liked this doctor (family practice specialist) and am very happy with him. His office schedules all the tests I've needed such as bone density, mammograms, etc. Also, I needed an oncologist, dermatologist, and an orthopedist since I started seeing him and his office made the initial appointments for each of the specialists. I don't know if I would have been able to call myself and get appointments. A good primary doctor is like a good quarterback who makes "good calls."

    I've got my fingers crossed that you find someone today!

    Went to Medi Quick today and got a script for my blood pressure meds. He was great and gave me enough for 90 days so I can find a doctor. I ran out last week and have had a bad migraine for 4 days now.
    I found out what the interview or filling out an application for a doctor to take you as a patient is about. They do not want you if you have a lot of things wrong. They want you in and out, the more patients they can see in a day the more money they can make. Why see two people with 50 things wrong with them when you can see 20 patients that day with only one or two small problems.

    Are you able to take Ibuprofen 800mg? Works every time and is prescribed as a pain med. Not sure if it will interfere with your Blood Pressure meds. I know that it will thin the blood to a certain extent. My BP usually runs around 155/75 everyday all day. Hope you get feeling better.

    Jeannie, I hope that this doctor will be "just what the doctor ordered" and that you like him. It is so important to like and to have faith in those who provide our health care.
