Don't mess with me!

Exercise your brain and get rid of that useless doctor to take care of your medical needs! It takes determination to research for a good doctor and then a lot of luck to find a good one.  It also took me to lose it one day and say "I had enough" with this woman doctor and her idiot assistant!

“Problem solving comes easier with a fit mind.” I have been so chronically fatigued and not knowing why. This symptom is not easy to solve the culprit that is causing it. I only recall that is started after my several dental visits in June??????

I can’t expect my body to stay in shape without regular exercise, so I surely can’t expect my mind to perform to the peak of its ability without use.  And, I can't exercise if I'm constantly sleeping during the day and awake all night long!

I needed to confront the problems that were crossing my path. And, more importantly, taking that step and planning a strategy to make things better.

I was facing seeking a new doctor, as my old doctor was just not cutting the mustard! She and her staff were unacceptable. Not good to always get voicemail whenever a medical issue arises and waiting up to five days for a return call. This was the last straw for me! It is difficult selecting a Primary Care out of a huge book of names.

Finally, all my research and efforts brought me to a good place with a new, knowledgeable, caring doctor and he even returns the calls himself to relate the results of lab work. Whooooooooohooooooooo!

I feel like that awful portion of my life is over having to put up with a terrible medical facility/doctor/staff…… now I have full control and it begins right now. When you are not feeling well, this is not good to have a useless doctor and staff. I invested two years with this doctor and didn’t know where to turn next. It is hard to find a good doctor.

I asked everyone I came in contact with for a referral of a doctor that they truly were happy with how they managed their health.

So, one doctor’s name kept popping up and I remembered this name when my Medicare Card first arrived in the mailbox but at that time, this doctor was not taking new patients, so I dismissed this medical office. I’m so happy that I decided to double check again two years later and he was now accepting new patients!

Wow, what a difference between the old doctor and the new. Like night and day! I now feel like I’m in good hands at last.

I still work on letting my feelings be my choice. I realized that there is no need to hold my feelings hostage. Oh the valuable possibilities if I just allow myself to observe the world from a positive perspective!

This new doctor is Board Certified, educated in the Northeast, Italian, knows his stuff, super great staff, pristine office facility, and did I say easy on the eyes! LOL


  1. You've got half the battle WON when you find a GOOD doctor to care for you. I am glad you were able to get in to see this NEW doc. It must be a huge weight off your shoulder to be through with that other BAD doctor. You EMBRACE the change and your health will improve, I'm sure. take care.

  2. Funny thing, My entry coming up has to do with doctors. It is amazing the difference in Humans, and that includes Doctors. YOu are absolutely right. You need one you can trust, but is also good at what they do.
    Not an easy thing to find in today's world, where a corporation requires a doctor to see a patient every 10-12 minutes. (That is an accident waiting to happen).
    Glad you found a good combination.

    Love from New York, jack & Sherry

  3. Hope this is the start of a journey to feeling much better.

  4. A good doctor is worth their weight in gold I haven't had a good one in years. I got tired of trying and just haven't gone at all. Thankfully, I haven't been sick either. All doctors differ so having a choice is a good thing. Take good care and hope you are feeling better.
