      I established w/Dr. Blue after mvg to the MB area - I am overweight, over 60 w/a history of high chol. (provided in history) AND told her my A1c's were climbing. Dr. Blue didn't order either test. I told her nurse ( always rude) on 2nd visit. 9 months later, feeling very ill, I got an appt. She grimaced when she saw my list of things to discuss and talked over me but I insisted on an A1c and a lipid. I don't need a consult. I'm an RN. I need meds! Call them in and don't waste my time!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
