Dr Apointment Today - I'm Officially "Special"

I do like Dr Van Doren.
He talks a lot but he is a very precise thinker and I can understand him.

I wanted to get a referal to an endocrinologist but he wants me be checked out for sleep apnea first. My fatigue, weight, edema, and occasional hypersomnolence may all be caused by sleep apnea. At least sleep apnea needs to be ruled out before we look at my endocrine system.

He wants me to see an orthopedic specialist about my knees. And he would only give me a temporary handicaped permit because he thinks my knees can improve. So, I'm "special" but just for a while.

It's good that your doctor is willing to have tests done to find out what's going on with your health, and I think it's great that he's optimistic that your knees can improve. If I was doctor shopping I'd seriously consider him. But I finally found a doctor I like. And the search for the right doctor only took 5 years!

I'm glad you're in good hands - there aren't enough good doctors in this town.
Silly! You've always been special.
