What is the role of an ID doctor?

Thank you Sue. It sounds like I need to rely on my current pulmonologist for now and hope I don’t get sick before my visit to NJH. I’m just concerned that if I get sick I’ll be bounced between the pulmonologist and ID doctor but mostly be told I should have started the treatment. I already feel like they must think of me as a recalcitrant patient since I am resisting taking the antibiotic treatment at this time and they don’t know what to do with me.

When I was temporarily without a pulmonologist (long story, but he "fired" me), my primary stepped in to treat exacerbations until I got a new doc. Is that an option for you?
