Wow.. I wasn't aware of that.. I guess I need to read those rules.. Where would they be found? I would hate to do something like that again. Sorry to everyone for outing the names on here.
Brandi.. Heads up.. GI is kind of crazy. My doctor and all of his staff laughed when I even mentioned his name. He is a good man but they do claim that he is the only one in the country that does the one procedure. Any RE can tell you that you have insulin resistant. I paid the $500 on my first day and my hubby was sooo pissed. (He had already given me a warning because he deals with all the hospitals around the med center.)
I paid $500 to be told I needed to lose more weight, some silly looking graphs that just showed my gi tract was dancing, and a prescription for anti-seizure meds and a allergy pill. ( I though I was seeing a GI not a general practice doctor.
Just be careful. He makes every patient he sees do that test. So every patient pays $500 up front. I was lucky with him. My insurance didn't pay him a dime not even for the office visit.
Best of luck. Keep us updated.
( I am sorry if I put any doubt in your mind.) Mangal was great when I saw him but he refused to send me to someone outside of his endo staff. So my hubby and I decided I couldn't trust him.View Thread
What's his name? He's description of what endo is sounds alot like the last RE doctor I went and seen. Whom I stopped seeing after the first visit because he refused to send me to a different GI doctor. Not sure if it's the same one but the location and everything sounds pretty close.
( I asked for a referral to a different GI doc because the one told me I needed to weight 110 pounds which meant I needed to lose 50 more pounds and he did some test that cost me $500 dollars out of pocket. I researched the GI doctor and found lost of voliations from medical board for inappropiate insurance fillings and even spoke to someone at endo assoication and they said he wasn't the type of doctors you want taking care of you.
Both doctor's names are : Rakesh Mangal , RE John Mathias, GI
I hope it' s not the same doc.. or if so you have a better dealing with him.. I am now seeing Dr. Robert Mcwilliams.View Thread
What your doctor's name? I am in the Houston Area too and both my last two RE doctors won't give me anything for the pain just switching bcps. I would love to find one that actually cares and not just a typical surgeon.View Thread
woohoo. Today is starting off to be a great day. Finally after 29 days the spotting/bleeding finally went away. Started back on my Loestrin yesterday so hopefully this time around is better then the 1st 2 weeks on it. I hope everyone has a great day.View Thread
Congrats Britt. I will say a prayer for you. Sorry to hear everyone else is sick. I am catching a cold myself. Gotta love this crazy weather everyone across the country is having. I hope everyone stays bundled up and warm.View Thread
Hey ladies. Sounds like Monday's aren't being to nice to any of us today. Brandi, Carrie, and Holly, I hope all you ladies start to feel better.
I am hanging in there today. All this crazy Texas weather has me trying to caught a cold or get a sinus infection. My crazy AF issues seems to finally be coming to a stop. Only 28 days later. Now it's time to see what the doctor thinks and what he wants me to do.
Well it's late. Everyone have a great night and hope you all feel better soon.View Thread
