I have seen my primary doc in northgate he medicine he refers me to see a specialist in use but it is still a wait game. What bothers me is the bloated stomach, empty nose syndrome and the breathing problem.

The docs just do not take the patients seriously and they do not investigate and study the case and the answer I receive is I do not know and offer some common and stupid advice or simply could not diagnose or help at all. Even the med or things they told me did not work.
Just went to Swedish today and the doc said I have atrophic inferior turbinates. Just wonder what causes it？ asked him and he said he does not know. Took only 15 mins for the visit and be described me the topical estrogen and not sure if this is appropriate and I seem to lose faith in all the docs cuz like I said they don it really treat the patients seriously.
I still do not have any primary doc. So I have to make an appointment with him first, which is the week after next week. For gastroenterologists, I am still waiting for them to call me back. Most of the clinics or docs will allow physical visit in June. Shall I make an appointment to see the rheumatologist as soon as possible cuz I have multiple symptoms and I have to go to Swedish and check for my nose next week? It is just like a wait game. Swedish is worse and the docs seem so indifferent and do not care about the patients as well as the polyclinic in Seattle. I was supposed to see the ENT last week but a couple mins late due to getting lost and went to the wrong clinic. The doc refused to see me. So have to see a different doc next week. I doubt if the Swedish docs really care or know how to diagnose my symptoms. Like one of the patients in here said, the docs right now seems to focus on money making and do not really thoroughly study the patients' cases and investigate the cause.
The question is if uw is somewhat similar to Mayo Clinic? I am just wondering how quick and how they diagnose the problem? Do multiple docs work together to come up with the diagnosis? Will uw medical center does the same thing? Cuz I have seen a few docs in Polyclinic and they do not seem to really care my health without much follow-up.
Here are what I have done the Ana reflex panel and the result is as followed:
– Screen negative by IFA and multiplex.
Therefore negative for the following specific antibodies: dsDNA,
chromatin, ribosomal P, Sm, RNP, SSA/Ro, SSB/La, Centromere, Scl70
– Anti SSA/RO & ANTI SSB/LA are less than 0.2.
– VITAMIN B12,SRM and FOLATE,SERUM are also normal within range.
Does it mean that I do not have immune disorder? Cuz I have messaged the neurologist and she said no. I do not have immune disease. Will the result be accurate or the test is only effective to rule out certain immune diseases or just tells us certain diseases are likely to happen? Everything health problem happened to me so abrupt.
