@contentandwell. An AP is an Assistant Physician. My pcp assigned me to her for unknown reasons. I've been thinking about a geriatric physician for a while, but I'm using the term loosely cause we have none in our area. I plan to ask for a referral from my gynecologist to a doctor who thinks like a geriatric doctor. My reason, other than I do not want the AP, is that I have multiple problems now, and my pcp seems to zero in on what he considers important and ignores others. One of my lifelong problems is polycystic ovaries, a condition I now know can cause diabetes. He should have been monitoring me and given me some kind of warning. Neither happened and now I have diabetes. Luckily, I've been able to keep it under control. Told my gynecologist that I'd like to invite all my specialists for coffee; he said I couldn't afford that much coffee!! 😉 Somebody, it seems to me, needs to look at coordinating all these specialties so everyone is as near as possible on the same page. If you've an excellent pcp, I would stay with him/her. Apropos of nothing, while I appreciate the role of technology in modern medicine, there's still room for the talents and experience of our doctors. As an example, don't know how many of those multiple-page forms I've completed prior to an initial visit which the doctor totally ignores. It seems to me a common complaint I hear is doctors don't listen. So happy for kamama94 who has accomplished so much with a very supportive medical staff! Thanks for letting me ramble on…..
