What to do if family doc doesn't want to give me referral?
this is a new family doctor..i've seen him just twice..i discussed with him my problems about how i'm constantly hungry, i have unvoluntary gas problems, concentration, rashes, all that..he got me to submit a blood, urine and stool sample...results come back 2 weeks later showing that i'm 100% fine!! wow!! based on my symptoms and the way i feel i would have never guessed! so the reason why he had these tests was because i was asking him for a referal to a gastrointerologist...i guess not being fully aware at the time i should have instead asked for a endocronoligist instead
so i call him yesterday..the receptionist tells me she needs to leave him a letter informing him of this and she'll get back to me today...well they just called and the lady says the doctor doesn't want to refer me to an endo because there is nothing wrong with my thryroid..i told her that most general tests performed don't really show that anything is wrong with ones thyroid...
i am absolutely disgusted right now that i'm thinking of ditching this doctor and finding a better one..
any suggestions on what to do? theres this clinic by my house where this doctor refers you fairly easily without much diffuculty..i might resort to that route
does anyone here know how accurate these tests are? not once have i heard anyone mention t3, t4, cortisol levels..or anything like that
