I have no health insurance and two doctors to choose from. The first is pretty woo - Flowing Chi Medical - which is OK, IMO, although I don't need any acupuncture, thanks. I've spoken with her twice on the phone and not completely impressed but she would let me pay monthly - $100 a month. I have an appointment with her for a week from tomorrow. I say not completely impressed because I was a bit, um, do you have to talk about your kids so much? I kind of want our relationship to be about ME but, honestly, I'm pretty quick to be cranky lately. The other one is Dr. Weed - I'm not kidding, that's her name. so far I haven't spoken with her, but I liked the woman in her office I spoke to. thing is, to see her I have to go through MDVIP and I am not very impressed with them. They told me she has a waiting list and put me on it, but her office said, no, we can see you. First sign up with them and then we'll get you in. So that's confusing. But I liked the woman I talked to and she offered a "meet" where I just come in and ask questions. Nice office lady was professional and let me know stuff like Dr. Weed does not prescribe narcotics which I am OK with. I mean, I have insomnia but as near as I can tell taking sleeping pills may sedate you, even knock you out, but it's not sleep. my gut says Dr. Weed is the better option - but that's more wild ass guess than anything else - while Dr. Foster (flowing chi) is cheaper and I can pay monthly instead of quarterly. I may have mentioned I am in a deep hole, financially. It is so hard to make decisions when I'm not sure what's going to happen. I am giving up my part time Home Health job (which is a better job but they don't have full time) and going full time with Evil Corp but their health insurance is shitty plus not available for months anyway. so it's all short term issues at this point. anyway, it helps to type it all out and you are welcome to give advice. thank you!
