difficult doctor (trying to get note)
i was diagnosed with interstitial cystitis last year, but i have had symptoms for about 20 years. i decided to get aggressive with pursuing a diagnosis after i had to drop out of college for the third time and they informed me i would not be allowed back without a doctor's note. it took me 5 years from that point to get diagnosed. now that i am finally diagnosed i'm having trouble getting my urologist to write the note that i spent 5 years of my life working towards!
my doctor says that i should just take more medication and then i won't need a note. i tried to explain to him that whether i'm on medication or not, i still need a note and he grudgingly wrote me a note but put the wrong diagnosis on it and wouldn't write any requests for accommodations. i just need for him to write something that states my correct diagnosis, briefly explains the condition, and requests that i be allowed to have water in class and use the restroom as needed.
i know he isn't a good doctor for me and i've been trying to find a new one, but there aren't that many urologists in my area. i have the name for a new one, but i'm moving in about a month (my doctors are in california, but my college is in texas) and i really need to get this note filed before i move.
does anyone have any advice?
