Changing Doctors

Hello @santosha!

I also feel the doctor patient relationship should be a partnership. The doctor has a way of being controlling in replacing the battery. She just says I think the battery should replaced I'll refer you to Dr. X rather than I think the battery should be replaced I'll refer you to X okay? I have considered another doctor but I do not like changing doctors. I have to have someone learn my whole history which is very complex and I don't want them to add any different medications.

Hi Laurie, Good Morning
I just saw your exchange of messages with @jakedduck1. Great, say NO, calling the nurse today and saying this is your decision and all that is causing all too much stress to you. Hope all goes well and that your doctor finally listens to you.
I very much understand the challenges of changing doctors, especially after he or she has been with you for many years, and knows all your story. But also staying in a relationship that is no longer working well, is also not worthwhile. For me, it is the same as keeping a marriage just for the sake of the marriage.
All the best today and continue to take care of you!
Great weekend @lsittll and @jakedduck1
