Everytime I have to acquire a referral for my 3 month follow up visit with my endocrinologist. I hate having to constantly make a ton of phone calls and physical visits to my primary care physican's office because they don't happen to have my doctor's notes or orders for a follow up on file. So this leads me to call my endocrinologist's office where they tell me that they do have those files sent already. Now they give me the department for utilization management only for them to tell me the same thing and even when someone from the referral department at my primary care physican's office calls them to leave a message they still haven't recieved any callbacks regarding the issue. This is literally making me wish I had gone to an LGBT clinic to see one of their specialists and pay out of pocket. They at least work on a sliding scale the last time I looked into it and perhaps it could have saved me the headache of playing the 3 month Referral Games. Why do I have to feel like Katniss Everdeen every time I have to get something done?
