Re: Scared! Have to make a decission! Pls Help!
Thank you, both, for your replies.
Yes, I am getting more than one opinion...I'm actually working on my 8th opinion! The first 6 were in Manila where I was told there weren't any doctors trained to handle cervical spine. I was then refered to a doctor in San Francisco. Tried accupuncture, didn't work well. I'm consulting a doctor friend in Germany (surgeon) and will definately go to San Francisco and maybe start again with the specialist I saw there.
The innsurance bit is interesting...my innsurance is an International firm and I haven't had any problems so far with any of the files I've made with them.
One of the biggest stumbling blocks is, tho I am an American I am not an American resident. It is impossible for me to get a doctors appointment without a doctors referal!! I have to ask my doctor friends in Manila to ask thier collegues in the States to make appointments for me! When I phone personally (long distance, mind you!) I am refusssed appointments! Instead of being frustrated, I'm amussed by this.
So, thank you and keep smiling!
