I am considering changing my Dr. He's nice enough but doesn't seem to address any of my concerns. I was Dx a little over a year ago. I am taking Plaquenil 200 every 12 hours. Thankfully I'm doing great. I see him every 12 weeks, he squeezes my joints, and says "great, see you in 12 weeks". The few times I've told him about new problems he just dismisses them and tells me to talk to my family Dr. Well this visit I tried to discuss digestive issues I've had lately. He said talk to your family Dr, I said I have. So he just moved on. I thought he should have at least talked about how this may or may not be part of my RA. So then I asked about my blood values. Mildly low Albumin and .8 C-reactive protein. He said not to be worried, these values aren't that important. So at the end of the 4 minute appointment he said see you in 12 weeks, unless anything changes, then he'd like to see me sooner. I asked that since I am symptom free for more than a year and all my concerns should be addressed by my family Dr, if we could schedule out 6 months. Nope. He "wouldn't want anything new to go unaddressed that long. ". Is this typical? I live in a semi-rural area so my Dr choices are limited, but I'm willing to travel if I expect a higher level of care. Any suggestions?
