Well, you're lucky. I have to see my GP every 3 months for my blood pressure!

Speaking as someone that got some really bad news following blood work for a yearly check-up I just can't come to terms with us trying to figure out our own results. I know that most of you are not saying that but it is where we could end up.
My Primary Care picked up something that other doctors may not have seen so I started treatment a lot, possibly years, earlier than some others who have my condition. I have a good quality of life because of it, despite SA.
For all your sake's I vote to leave things as they are.


Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.

Yeah, doc doesn't have to see you but I'm sure you (or someone) will still get billed for the consultation. Bigwink

RE: What's wrong with this picture?
I've had the same PCP (Internal Medicine), for quite a few years. He is a wonderful, caring person that watches my overall health (or lack of it) and quickly refers me to specialists when needed. I see him every 3 months for blood pressure, thyroid and a few other things. Every November he runs a full battery of blood tests, but they qe ordered at my August appointment and I get them the week before the November visit. I get the results then and he sends me a copy--mine was in my mail box when I got home from seeing him this past week. He was very interested in my apnea situation--he referred me to the sleep doc after I fell asleep while driving and got in an accident. He seems to know what is involved--actually wants me to talk to my cardiologist about wearing an pulse oximeter overnight to be certain my O2 isn't dripping too much (I carry a cheap one around with me to keep track of my rapid heartbeat). I have few OA's, more CA's and Cheyne Stokes respiration. I do have two heart problems. He knows my sleep doc, also Internal Medicine. I feel I have a very good team and so far no problems with Medicare and Tricare4Life. I'm very fortunate. So happy to have found this forum--am arming myself with info before seeing my DME in a week and then sleep doc in December--and probably the cardiologist.
