I want to stop limping!

What I think is my Achilles Tendon or is in that area at least started hurting like crazy on my right foot when I walk. I would like to see a doctor about this but my health insurance has a super high deductible, and is mainly to keep an unforeseen emergency from bankrupting me. How can I have someone check this out where it won't cost me an arm and a leg, is there some kind of clinic I can go to? Mid 20s, located in LA.

Help me find a good ophthalmologist in Bellingham, WA.

My optometrist just spotted a mystery mass in my left eye that's making my vision partially blurry. She's referring me to a specialist in Seattle who can see me in the middle of next month, but I'd really like to get an appointment sooner--and locally. Can anyone recommend a good, competent ophthalmologist with a decent bedside manner in Bellingham, WA?

How do I go to my doctor and insist I get tested without her laughing me out of the office or convincing me otherwise that I don't have lupus? Also, I might be crazy. Obviously, YANA/MD [more inside]

Do I pursue the fact that my GI doc did not wait for the anaesthetic to take effect during my upper endoscopy & colonoscopy?

I just underwent upper endoscopy and colonoscopy. The GI administered the anaesthetic in a haphazard, guesswork fashion and eventually just gave up and proceeded even though the anaesthetic was clearly having no effect yet. My reflexive reactions to the EGD were pretty violent although I don't think I ended up with any injuries. The drugs kicked in 3/4 of the way through the colonoscopy. How much of a big deal should I make out of this? [more inside]

A friend is looking for a fat-friendly general practitioner in Austin, TX. (Someone who subscribes to the idea of health at every size would be ideal — though really it doesn't matter how they label themself, as long as they're generally sensitive about body-image/weight/food issues. We've seen this fat friendly health professionals list, but the one GP listed in Austin is apparently no longer practicing here.) Suggestions? [more inside]

Help this Santa Monica girl stop relying on Big Pharma.

I'm looking for recommendations for a primary care physician who is also a naturopath, acupuncturist, or osteopath, or who at least is receptiveto eastern and/or complementary medicine. Preferably in Santa Monica but will consider the greater west side of Los Angeles. Bonus points if they accept my lousy Blue Shield California HMO insurance. Thanks in advance!

Given short shrift at visit to the doctor

My husband recently had an appointment with a new doctor, primarily to discuss issues of mild depression and a mystery nodule in his inguinal region. Depression is not chronic or severe, and husband has never sought treatment for it before, but doctor (a) prescribed Effexor + Xanax right off the bat; (b) did not discuss "discontinuation syndrome" or other potential side effects; (c) did not look at the nodule at all.

Need recommendations for an internist and/or endocrinologist in the metro Denver area, for myself and my husband.

We don't want the "OMG don't you know fat is bad for you, hurf durf buttereater" crap from here either-- go kick a puppy or something. We only want to know about doctors that will respect our wishes.

Why do I have to have two MRI's?

This doesn't seem right. Why can't I stay in the MRI machine for 40 minutes and then have my back and knee imaged at the same time? [more inside]
