@jc123 when I confronted my PCP about not diagnosing me despite obvious symptoms and red flags he said he relied on what my previous doctor had thought! To me, that’s just wrong. When you go to a doctor for another opinion they should start from scratch and try to put the pieces of the puzzle together.

If you ever watched House on TV about a cranky doctor who was an incredible diagnostician you see, despite that just being TV, that a good doctor really has to give difficult diagnoses a lot of thought and analysis. I think that’s a gift and more doctors don’t have it than do.

@contentandwell I know well what you experienced. I have the same )(*^&^% from my doctors. Fortunately, in one sense, I have found three (3) doctors in Oregon who agree with me. Yet all three are afraid to put their name on the diagnosis because the one who said "No!" is a big shot in the Samaritan system that I have to use. The other good thing (I suppose) is that the disease I actually have will kill me fairly soon, I hope, and nothing can be done about it by anyone. But I still have a hate in my heart for the system and for that one doc, because he passed the word to the other 1-AAA systems I have tried to get in to for treatment or at least support. May he catch COVID soon.
