Talk to your PCP: Ask your PCP if he/she can contact the hem-onc doc to get in quicker. Ask if you can be sooner elsewhere like at the Mayo Clinic. It is right to be concerned about the delay, or if there is other tests that can be done before your appointment that may be helpful in making the diagnosis.
