Has anyone noticed that your appointments for medical procedures have been months away. I went to my regular doctor in

July, and complained about numbness in my spine and left leg. He sends me for a test Electo procedure--two months away. I get the results back. The tests showed the results as being abnormal. My Doctor says I need to see a neurologist. I saw a NP and not a doctor. I was told that I have to have scans done on my spine and pelvic nerves---in January. Mean while , I am falling, and find it difficult to walk. I asked the woman if I could get it done sooner, She told me that it was BCBS and Medicare that are delaying the tests. Does anyone know if this is true? Is anyone experiencing a delay in medical procedures? Thanks, Debbie.

  • Democracy can survive anything except Democrats
And all these delays started after Obama screwed up the health care system. Doctor's are so busy doing the required documentation they have less time to see patients... especially specialists.

Yes, I couldn’t get a regular appointment less than a month out. I might as well say my regular doctor is urgent care.

They fell for the shit sandwich that is obama care. And with millions of illegals using the system it’s in overload.

Hypochondriac much? If you are truly sick, go to your nearest emergency care center. They're abundant in decent sized cities.
