#793347 Getting Confused

Posted by trayne91 on 04 May 2012 - 05:26 PM

I have my insurance straightened out now. Got that done last night. I'm actually self-employed and in a low patch right now, and am using a state-wide lower income insurance program right because Blue Cross Blue Shield was killing me with high costs. My current insurance was trying to say I was ineligible and cancelled my insurance on the day of my appt. I raised hell and have it all back and straightened out now, so that shouldn't be an issue for me anymore.

As for this doctor, he also told me that Celiac was the new Hollywood craze these days and it was hip to have it.... Yeah, he did. Personally, I don't really like his arrogance or attitude after our first meeting. However, I do know he knows how to do an endo. He is accredited and did tell me he would take multiple samples, not just 1-4. So, I do know that will happen. And I know he is checking me for everything in one shot, so I won't have to go back for another procedure.

I worry about who reads these tests? The GI doctor or the Lab? If I go with someone else, which I would like to, but I also want this over with and am weighing my options, will the new Dr. just do the exact same thing - meaning, schedule me for an endoscopy? If I go somewhere else and run up another Dr. appt charge and end up with the same result because I have to have the test either way, did I just run up another bill for no reason? Would there be another reason to run away from this Doctor? If it's Celiac, I don't have to worry about him treating me either since I go gluten-free or do I? Are there follow-up procedures? Could I get the labs and have another Dr. read it and treat me after the endo to at least just get the procedure out the way right sway since I'm scheduled for Wednesday? Ah, so many questions...
