    kim, go back to your primary in a week or so.
    ask him if he has the specialist report.
    ask for a new referal.
    waiting 1 year because the doctor cannot get enough money out of a public patient is not acceptable.
    cherie had a similar problem with her knees.
    1 doctor didnt want to do it..... so we saw another specialist.
    (he was a lot higher up the chain), he looked at her knees and said when can i operate.

    thanks steve i will try but the waiting lists are so disgusting i will ring pediatrician and see if he can hurry process along leaving it that long worries me. think he was just cranky becaause my gp asked him to bulk bill us otherwise he was going to charge us 200 dollars and i just didnot have it. do you know if i put in papers for her at the hospital waiting list can i change specialist. as he has already filled out paperwork. and put non urgent under 365 days. thanks kim

    Hi Kim,
    It's good to "hear" from you.
    I agree with Steve - ask for another specialist.
    I do wish that things would start getting better for you and your family.
    Hugs,
    Marla
