I asked the woman what kind of waiting time I could expect. She wouldn't even give me an estimate.



I kind of think my dr is being a hard head. I'm not sure where I heard or read this, maybe the news or some news article, but didn't Trump tell the physicians they could treat their patients as they see fit? I don't know how to exactly interpret that, but I would guess that they don't have to follow the strict guidelines that were in place before all this.
Any other place that will draw blood? Check with your insurance to see if your plan covers them.

Sounds like your doctor is being a hard head.

I know my oldest son's doctor did the same as mine.
Made an allowance for a refill on a prescription without having to set up an appointment to be seen first.
Now I did have labs done earlier in the month.
That was a quick in and out blood draw without seeing my doctor.

Quite possibly, or maybe I should say quite probably.

My insurance would pay, but I know my dr doesn't accept outside lab results. He has signs posted all over his office and exam rooms.

That's probably what his problem is. My lab work is now over a year old, just barely though.

I would have to say definitely on the money driven if doc won't accept labs from other places. Very good chance doc owns a stake in the lab. I thought that was illegal, at the least unethical, if not disclosed to patients.

I had to go read about this. From what I read, I believe you're right about it being illegal, but there are exceptions/loopholes. I would put money on it that my dr isn't doing anything illegal. Thanks for the information.

I'm just going to have to put on my big panties and go down there.

Looks like a promising vaccine is in the works. They're being cautious on saying when it will be available.
