Help me see a doctor while on Holiday in Munich

I have suffered itchiness around my vagina for a long time, I have seen many doctors in China but they failed to help me, I am in Munich now and I'll be here for about another week, how can I find and make an appointment with a doctor to help me take care of this? How does paying for doctors visit work here in Munich? Will it likely be less than 500 Euros?

That's interesting underwear you've got there

I have a diaper fetish, and I've been wearing them 24/7 for the past 8 months. Tomorrow is my annual physical. I'm sure that doctors see patients in diapers all the time, but typically for incontinence issues. Naturally the diapers won't have been used before going in (I typically don't use them in public anyway), but is this crossing a professional line? [more inside]

Can I wait for two months to go to the doctor for this?

I found a lump in my armpit and will be getting it checked out by a doctor. Unfortunately, I work in a contact-based job and my next contract is schedule to begin in August. My benefits, including health insurance, will be in place again at that time, but I'm uninsured during summer months. Is this the sort of thing that can wait until I have insurance again or do I need to go to the doctor right now? [more inside]

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

My husband gets a clean bill of health from his doctor every time he goes for a checkup, which makes no sense to me if she knew his habits. He seems to like and respect his doctor, and is inclined to listen to her. I've been considering calling her up and informing her of what she's been missing. Have you ever done this? Have you ever been the doctor on the receiving end of this information? I welcome your thoughts and experience. [more inside]

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]

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. ...

What's the salary of a rural doctor in the National Health Service Corp?

Sorry for the anonymous post. I am a pediatrician finishing my residency in July. I am interested in doing the National Health Service Corp in a rural area. I have looked at dozens of job posts on the NHSC website, but none of them list their salary. Instead they only mention that it is "competitive." It is frustrating because I don't know what the industry range for "competitive" salaries is. What is a "competitive" salary for a young pediatrician working in a rural area? $60k? $100k? $150k? Thank you so much for your help!

Should I ask my doctor for a Cipro alternative?

My doctor prescribed me Cipro (Ciprofloxacin) for a potential prostate infection. This is the first prescription drug I've been on in about 10 years. After reading up on the internet about potential side effects (as well as FDA black box warnings [!]) I have to admit I am rather concerned about permanent damage to weight bearing joints and possible tendon rupture (which can occur long after you stop treatment) There are a bunch of lawsuits going on about it. I do fairly heavy weight training and this makes me nervous. [more inside]
