Isn't waiting the worst part!
I dont know about everyone else, but for myself waiting to get in to see all these doctors is the worst. I have an excellent PM doc and likewise a very good,. well respected neurosurgeon. My injury was work related and my company has provided my a caseworker. That in itself was a lifesaver for me.
My caseworker has a lot of pull to get me in asap, but at times it seems like an eternity. One more thing to remember that I tell myself. When it seems like it takes forever to get that anticipated appt, it's probably because your dealing with a very good doc and everyone else wants to see him or her also. Some docs are well worth the wait. Just my opinion.
