Helpful Doctor

Pretty successful morning… (other than not being able to go back to sleep this morning) I went to my appointment and saw the same doctor at the Pentagon that was pretty terse with me last time. This time she was very pleasant and did everything she could to help me. She put in a referral for a new Neurologist at NNMC and she also put in a referral so that I can see Dr. Milani at NRH again on Monday. Unfortunately, she said that a specialist will have to start the MRB, so I am going to talk to the Neurologist about that. And finally, she wrote up a new temporary profile to limit my physical activity and it also states that I am not deployable to a war zone – just in case…

So when I got home I tried to make an appt with neuro – but alas… I have to wait 48 hours to make it – so I’ll have to call back Monday afternoon. Then I called HealthNet, who takes care of insurance and medical issues outside the military, and what do you know? I didn’t need a referral after all. The last one I had authorized five visits. So she gave me the auth number that I can give NRH and that’s that. So, all in all, it was a good morning. I think I’m going to grab a bite to eat and then try to take a nap or something.
