Thank you for your suggestions. I think I will wait until after I get my new medical inc confirmation. I hadn’t thought about that. Thank you

@codered032 Another thing while you search, is that you might choose to go with an internal medicine doctor who specializes in us "older folk".

We are very close in age. And like you, my medical needs have changed over the decades. I was very fortunate, when going onto Medicare, to have an advocate from the Area Agency on Aging from the county where I lived, advise me to "think ahead" about plans, since I had issues raising their heads. And as she said "you need to consider what might come in the future". By golly, she must have had a crystal ball! My chosen plans at that time have not changed, even with a slight uptick in premiums, due to their great coverage!

It seems younger medical professionals may look to the newest protocols, but still not create a dynamic doctor-patient relationship.
