I'm in the middle of some health issues. I'm not happy with my GP. Last week, I met with a new GP. The day after I met with him, I found out I needed a referral to get into the neurosurgeon I want. I didn't feel comfortable calling him as I just met him, and all my paperwork was with the original GP.
So, I called and left a message with the original GP to see if they could make the referral. The nurse called back yesterday and was all confused - then never called me back.
Tonight I had a follow-up appointment with the second GP and decided to definitely switch to him. He also said he's make a personal call to refer me and try to get me in quickly.
I'm worried now that the original GP did make an appt. and didn't follow up with me. I don't want the second GP to be mad that I was still dealing with them after our first appointment.
So - I was thinking of calling my initial GP tomorrow and telling them NOT to make a referral and asking if they did ever call. I'm assuming the receptionist would be the one to call, right? So she should know? Any advice? I really don't want to to tick of this new doctor - I like him
