Exclamation How deal w/ multiple Physicians

Because of different medical issues ie.. have General Practioner, Heart Specialist, Audiologist, Dental, Diabetic Nurse Practioner, Neurologist, Spinal Surgeon and Surgeon's assistant. Try to keep each informed of health issues. Keep current list of medications I take w/ me and provide to each individual physician at visits. Having to provide which to contact in emergency has proved complicated. Case history- lost consciousness in accident, became emergent due to cause. Recommendations?

Re: How deal w/ multiple Physicians

Hi,

I have a range of specialists as well for different health issues. It is a challenge to make sure they all have the same information. I usually ask for copies of my labs and records and hand carry them with me from place to place. I also try to put each docs info on the others release lists.

They have Medical ID USB drives available that are great for medical emergencies. It might be worth checking into one. They work the same as other Medical ID jewelry, but they hold a lot of information. You would be able to give it to the doctors office so they can take any information you want off of it. It is also available for emergency personnel to pull up your information immediately.
