Contact Lenses In Triangle, NC

Need an eye doctor can help my friend get the right contact lens prescription. She has a strong astigmatism in one eye, the other's normal. She's been to 4 eye doctors here and gone through many many different lenses shapes w/o success. For what it's worth, she has lenses that worked before - but from a doctor on the West Coast. Thanks!

To doctor or not to doctor?

Approximately two weeks ago (I think) I was out in the woods and was possibly bitten by something on the knuckle of my ring finger. The next day the spot ached in the joint, but no other symptoms. Over the last few days, though, the pain has returned and worsened, and now it appears to be getting puffy. Should I go see a medical professional about this? [more inside]

Hands shaking/tingling the day after drinking: Alcohol withdrawal?

I got drunk a couple days ago. Besides my hangover being horrendous (per usual), for maybe half the day my hands were slightly trembling and I couldn't get them to stop. They're doing better now, but my hands have never shaken before, and I'm worried that my drinking is starting to catch up with me. Would this be a reason to call the doctor, and if so are there any tests/checks I should ask to have done? Details inside. [more inside]

What do I ask/tell my new doctor about my mental health?

I don't know what help I need anymore, or even if I need help. I have a lifelong history of depression and the past two and half years, I've experienced more life stressors than normal. The original reasons I made the appointment was to a. get a new script for my anti-anxiety medication (which is also meant to help my depression), especially as I accidentally abruptly ceased it over 5 days ago, and b. a referral to a new psychiatrist to prescribe ADHD medication.

I know you're not my doc. Talk to me about endometriosis.

I visited my GP for a myriad of symptoms that she suspects is endometriosis. I'm headed to my Lady Doc on Monday, but wasn't terribly concerned. I thought it would be similar to the LEEP I had last year, as in "Zap zap, you're done." I wasn't even bothered—that is until I emailed a friend about her experience with endo. Help me parse what my friend is saying vs. what my GP said I should do? I'm feeling some pressure to move quickly. [more inside]

What happens when you try to talk to your spouse's doctor?

I might finally come to be worth something to society! Maybe...?

Hi Mefites. I'll be starting an online medical coding and billing course in January ( given by the AAPC), after graduating from a relatively well respected state school with a psychology BA in May and finding out far too late in the game that it would leave me with nil in terms of job prospects. After building up quite a bit of credit card debt and deciding that man cannot live on Hulu and Facebook alone, as I've been doing for six months, I decided to look into opportunities that required relatively little training to get started with, and happened upon medical billing, something that seems to fit me quite well. I'm tempering my enthusiasm however, because no amount of Googling seems to give me a clear sense of my path once the course is over. Help? [more inside]

Drug questions - should I ask GP or pharmacist?

I just started seeing a rheumatologist for my ankylosing spondylitis. She suggested a long term NSAID rather than just taking ibuprofen as I had been doing. She prescribed two options: diclofenac, which I tried, and Indomethacin, which I have not yet tried. I have questions about the new drug before I start it but my rheumatologist won't be able to respond for about a month. Should I see my family doctor or a pharmacist with questions about the new meds? Are either likely to be really familiar with a random medication?

Breaking Up is Hard to Do: medical system edition

I think I need to dump my primary care doctor under bad circumstances. He's abrasive, no longer coordinating my healthcare and has been suddenly unwilling to perform the services I pay for as part of a $3k+ yearly concierge program. After being a real boon to my healthcare as somebody with a rare disease for years, his treatment of me changed on a dime this fall. I blamed myself initially -- or thought he was just having a difficult day/week/month. It turns out he's being disciplined for severe incompetence (like, jaw dropping) and the practice will be monitored for many years. He has been so angry and abusive just to my husband picking up paper that I don't feel safe in the room alone with him. How can I tell new doctors why I'm leaving? How should I wrap things up? *blizzard* [more inside]

Help me pick my baby doctor!

I'm currently 31 weeks pregnant, and this afternoon I'm heading into a "meet and greet" with a new pediatrician at a practice affiliated with the big multi-specialty doctor group in my town. At this point, we're thinking it's pretty likely that we'll either go with the pediatrics group or with the family practice group where my PCP practices, and I had set up this meet and greet to help try to make that decision. However, it's now 5 hours until we head over and I have no clue what to ask this doctor to help us make a decision. I am sure others have probably gone through this before--so help me figure out what to ask! [more inside]

Need help finding a doctor to talk about PrEP.

I'm a 35-year-old, gay male (in Silicon Valley) who is looking to jump back into the dating pool after a long absence. A bit after reading this post on Truvada for pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) I thought I might be a candidate for it. I talked to my primary care doctor and although he though it as worth looking into, he didn't have any experience with Truvada and referred me to an infectious disease specialist. Unfortunately my experience with the specialist wasn't great; I felt like he dismissed the idea of PrEP almost out of hand and without really discussing my concerns or possible HIV risk factors. ...

Do you know of any RSI experts in the bay area, ideally SF?

For the last year I have had mild RSI, though it began pretty bad and I quickly changed things up so it would be better. That said, it hasn't gone away and I want to talk to a broader base of experts to try and nip this in the bud before it becomes more than just a nuisance. Ideally, I'd like to find a doctor that specializes in RSI, physical therapists (though I'm sure said doctor could refer me), and then whatever else people know...massage therapists, whatever else could help. But I'm looking for people who really know RSI and have worked with people with RSI before. I'm tired of doctors just saying "this is what happens when you use a computer." I'm in San Francisco, but can travel into the bay area if I have to.

Is there any such thing as a "Doctor Nurse"?

For most of the past two weeks my son has been in the hospital, at two different local hospitals actually, for pancreatic stones. My son is autistic, which complicates the diagnostic process. We had to be sent from the hospital we liked to a different hospital across town, because they were the only place locally that could perform the ERCP he needed. At the second hospital I took an immediate and visceral dislike to one of his care providers, and it was explicitly because she came into the room and introduced herself as "Doctor (whatever)", and then handed me her business card which presented her as "Dr. (whatever), ARNP". In other words, she is a nurse practitioner who came into the room and introduced herself as a medical doctor. She also spoke to me like I was ten years old, which did not endear me to her either. But in any case, my question is: Is there any such thing as a "Doctor Nurse"? I understand what a Nurse Practitioner is, my primary care provider is actually a Nurse Practitioner and I absolutely trust and respect her knowledge and experience. But this woman, I feel like she lied to us with the very first word coming out of her mouth, and I don't understand how she can get away with introducing herself as a doctor in a medical facility without actually being a Doctor of Medicine. Am I missing something? [more inside]

How much will the surgical practice get for doing a procedure?

Negotiating self pay medical bill. I want to have an idea of how much the surgical practice/surgeon would have been paid if the patient had had insurance. How much will they get if they hire a collection agency? Do they get a percentage or just sell the debit for a fixed price? The patient is being billed 1850.00 self pay for the procedure. The procedure was at a major Boston hospital and the patient is being billed self pay due to a temporary lapse in subsidized insurance. The hospital has already written off the bill. The billing date was sometime around the end of March 2013. The patient has been told by the billing organization that represents the surgeon that they have to deal directly with the surgeon or their practice.

Can a urgent care clinic ban you?

I was at urgent care for a ear problem and the doctor only spent less than 2 minutes with me, didnt even look at the other ear, gave me a prescription and left. The nurse came in and wanted me to sign a form saying I was "satisfied with my treatment and had all my questions answered" I told the nurse I had more questions for the doctor before I would sign it. She said the doctor was not going to answer any more questions and I overheard him saying to call the police, I was amazed as I was being very polite. So I left, as I was leaving he said I was banned from the clinic. Can they do that?

Which doctor should I see for my scoliosis?

I have a slight curvature in my spine however, it seriously put my whole body out of alignment. I discovered my body was misaligned upon looking in a reverse mirrored image of myself when trying on a bathing suit as a 15 year old. I'm much older now, but since the problem was never treated, my skeletal structure is the same, if not worse. This presents a problem in my field of work as a performer. I'm a busty woman with slender hips and because of my bust, its more pronounced. A view of my left side from a third degree angle looks amazing. Looks feminine and tall. However, the view from the right on a third degree angle looks boyish and collapsed. I see pictures of myself performing and it makes me cringe when angles of my right side are taken. My structure look deformed and I feel is limiting my opportunities to go further in my industry. I'm having a hard time deciding which doctor to see since I don't have health insurance. I would really love to correct this problem but I don't know where to start. Please help!

Help me find this documentary about a kindly abortion doctor!

Maybe ten years ago at a Green Festival in SF my mom and I saw a documentary about a small town doctor, probably in upstate New York or some other part of New England, who gave safe abortions to women even though they were illegal, starting in at least the 1950s. My mom thinks the title was "Thank You, Doctor ------", but can't remember the name. This is bugging her, as she actually had an abortion with him back then. He saved hundreds of lives, but of course when I google search I end up with lots of anti-abortion propaganda. Can someone more skilled with searching help us out? It was a very small production.
