You'd think that would be easy, right?
The doctor who seems most qualified is out of network. I knew that before I wasted a phone call.
At the first office I called, the phone just rang and rang.
The second office had an answering machine, at least. I left a message.
At the next office, a live person answered and told me that they don't accept commercial insurance.
The next place wouldn't take me unless I was going to continue treatment with them. They don't do consultations.
The next doctor I considered has either retired or moved. Either way, his office is closed.
I think something is wrong with this system! We have decent health insurance, yet I can't seem to get even an appointment with a specialist! If you're looking for me on Tuesday, I'll be on the phone ....
