    Just not knowing what I was dealing with.

    Oh No

    I thought I was doomed. My PCP was no help. Here it is 2 1/2 months and I still have not met the man. His office manager is not the most competent person nor are the scheduling assistants. They seem to forget you as soon as you leave the office. A lot of the paperwork, calling for surgeons, etc was handled by me, otherwise I would probably still be waiting for word from the pcp office. Good thing I had my fax machine or ????? Just venting. =)
