PET scan/thoracic surgeon consult

Postby beach sunrise » Mon Aug 23, 2021 5:21 pm

Well, set back has occurred. Thoracic surgeon my GI surgeon set me up with does not do telehealth, not set up for it yet is the reason so they canceled the PET scan because I told them I cannot come into the facility for an in person appt at this time, it has to be telehealth. I can go in for the PET scan but that is it.
I emailed my GI surgeon to let him know to hook me up with a more advanced tech savvy thoracic surgeon willing to work with me on telehealth.
