    wtf!?!!! no dr wants me!

    not a single Drs office on my list will take me as a patient. the lady today gave me a Dr in Georgia because he is a sci patient, and is the only one who takes sci patients. is that just fmessed up or what?!? There is a nearby voc rehab, and a hospital, and a pain clinic, but no Gp. this cant be right.
    I went in person just so they would not hang up on me. nice folks but the ladys say they dont have anyone who takes patients with those kind of complicated conditions. k the office in georgia says no also. I dont know what to do.

    Jody, that sucks. Try to find a doctor through the pain clinic you mentioned. Even if he/she specializes in pain some docs are willing to cover other areas too. For a long time I had an ortho who acted like a GP for me until I found one I felt comfortable with.

    Jody, there's an SCI center in Charlotte, NC. I wouldn't give them a high recommendation, but I would imagine that you could at least start there until you could find something better. You can PM me if you are interested in more info. about it.

    well now I dont even know why they are refurring out of state because sc medicaid is only good in south carolina.

    spoke to all but the last, but dont need a lawyer. first Dr on your list does not take medicaid. It will cost 90.00 each visit. id be homeless again if I had to pay that all the time.
    greenvill county disabilities...... no longer exists. both numbers are disconnected and there is no forwarding number.
    thanx for the offer of a free exam, I dont think I would benefit from it medically though, so must politely decline. made me laugh though.

    no specialist who accepts my insurance will see me without a refurral from a Gp.

    Hey Jody, first of all I am sorry. But did the GP's office give you a reason why they wouldn't take you? Are they not taking any new patients? Are they not taking new people with medicaid as their insurance?

    Don't do anything drastic but go to emergency, I don't think they can refuse you. Health care in the U.S. isn't worth a crap.
