Hi LA MeFites :)
I moved to LA not all that long ago--but long ago enough that it's past time for me to get some local doctors here just for basic check-ups, etc. I have blue cross blue shield insurance that covers most everything except dental. I live in Echo Park and would like to stay as close to home as possible. Probably goes without saying that I'd like to see doctors who are knowledgeable and have at least decent bedside manner. So, can you please recommend me:
A good female dermatologist
A good eye Dr (can be an Optometrist)
A good female gynecologist
A good place to get STD testing that isn't too expensive and doesn't have a crazy long wait time for testing and for results (I'm considering the gay and lesbian center? Or Planned Parenthood?)
A dentist that maybe charges on a sliding scale (oh, if only that existed) or is somewhat more affordable (long shot, I think)
A good general practitioner (optional)
Thanks in advance!
