Should I stay with a doctor that keeps guessing around with my health without further evaluation or referral to an speciallist though I'm paying?

Confidence important: The strong relationship between a doctor and a patient depends on confidence. A doctor needs good communication skills to listen and explain. Some doctors are smart but communicate what they are doing poorly, which frustrates the patient. The doctor should be able to explain why they want to do a test or why further testing isn't needed. From your question, it sounds like you need a new doctor. ...Read more

I've been prescribed clonazepam (2mg, muscle relaxant) for many years and I need to get off because of deteriorating health. What specialist would be best? A different doctor answered 'a psychiatrist' but in my experience most don't have a clue.

Clonazepam tapering: I commend you for your decision to let go off Clonazepam.

Should I see a specialist for dehydration, or can my regular doctor take care of it?

Regular Doctor: Your regular doctor should be able to guide you through a re-hydration strategy, starting with exploring, and treating, why you are dehydrated in the first place. Half strength "gatorade" or ginger ale (diluted with water), in frequent small amounts is a good start. Note that there are good prescription meds for nausea/vomiting. Aim for feeling better, & making light yellow urine every few hours. ...Read more

Both are fine: Most physicians can treat diverticulitis, but the most important thing is to make sure that the diagnosis is correct.

Hey, I need a doctor who can help me with my slipped disk, what kind of specialist will I see?

Start with family MD: Since most people get better without surgery, start with your primary care doctor who might prescribe modification of activities, medicines, physiotherapy, anti-inflammatories, and possibly cortisone injections in the spine. If you remain symptomatic despite all that, your doctor may send you to a neurosurgeon, but that is not the first place to start...Again, because most don't need surgery. ...Read more

Should I see a specialist for wegener's granulomatosis, or can my regular doctor take care of it?

Uncommon problems: ...Like wegener's require someone with experience to manage all the myriad manifestations and potential problems (how's that for alliteration) that can come with the disease or its treatment. Its possible but unlikely that your regular doctor has such experience, if I had wegener's I would be looking to at least have my doctor consult with someone who sees this problem frequently. ...Read more

My mom needs a specialist not on her insurance. Are doctors reluctant to negotiate fees with cash patients?

Doctors will often: Negotiate w/cash patients. The main thing is to get your mom seen by the proper doc. Please don't hesitate to search. If the person at the front desk won't help, drop in and have a chat. Some folks in doc offices are much better to deal w/than others. Be kind and patient and hopefully you will succeed.

I feel that my doctors are not helping me enough, they never refer to me to a specialist, shall I consider private healthcare?

I feel that my doctors are not helping me enough, they never refer to me to a specialist, shall I consider private healthcare?

Try again: If you have the option to try other doctors, you may want to. Not every doctor will be right for every patient. While private health insurance can allow you to see specialists, you may not know which specialist to see. Also, sometimes seeing a specialist may treat one facet of a whole picture, and leave a greater problem untreated. A good generalist is best to begin with. ...Read more
