The 2nd/3rd opinion process

Postby beach sunrise » Tue Mar 21, 2023 3:33 pm

Finally got to the bottom of why its been so hard to get an opinion from 2 specialists I contacted. Seems you have to call say like every other day to advocate for yourself and ask the hard questions of exactly why its taking so long. Boiled down to same thing with Germany, missing scans! Now I know my hospital puts up a hard line to keep patients there just to offer what have in their wheelhouse. SMH
2 more consults are in the works. Still silence from Germany after several calls and emails. Who knows what are dealing with over there I guess, ya know.
