    I'm meeting a prospective new PCP today for the first time since BEFORE I had my DS (this is one of the WORST things about moving!), so I personalized and updated the PCP letter for my own use, and decided to update the form letter that hasn't been updated in a long time. Here are PDF and Word versions for your own personalization.

    Do you mind if I make a tiny modification and share this with my current PCP? I will be his first DS patient and he is willing to learn with me. Your letter is a great starting point for even an existing doctor-patient relationship when the DS is being added to the mix.

    Also- Hope all goes (or went) well with the new doctor.

    Waiting for him to come in, printout in hand.

    I posted it for anyone to use, either as a script (PDF) or to modify the Word version.

    I liked him! He was familiar with the surgery too.

    He wants me to redo all my labs.

    Oh, and I made a follow up appointment with him in three weeks - and the next appointment for Charles, because he needs a PCP too and I think he'll like this guy (and if he doesn't, he can find another doctor, but he'll be in the system). One stone, two birds.
