The Bomb has been Dropped!


I did it. I dropped the bomb.

I should say, I dropped Dr. F-Bomb. Sure he was good for many great blog posts but I have finally broken free and found a new primary care physician.

The reason I decided to make the change, besides not having a potty mouth doc, was for a particular Endo that I heard was really good. The Endo I have (or had) is not interested in my health at all. I can think of countless times that I should have left this dude but I just never knew where to go! The one good thing he did was get me set up with Minimed for my pump but that was after I said, “I want an insulin pump” so I do not know if he should get credit for that.

I remember the time I went in to see him and told him about my foot hurting. He said, “We’ll get you a referral for a podiatrist.” I asked him if he wanted to look at them and he said that that is what the podiatrist will do. He NEVER saw my feet! WTF right?

The last time I saw him he asked me if I have ever thought about getting an insulin pump. I pulled Master P out of my pocket and said, “I am already on a pump.” HELLO?

A good friend of mine sees an Endo not to far from my home and he loves this guy. The only way I can see this guy is to get a PCP that will refer me to him. I called the Endo’s office and spoke to a nurse there. I said, “Which doctor would you recommend me seeing that will refer me to Dr. Reece?” The nurse I spoke to was so helpful and kind that I am already feeling some love for this change. The nurses at the other office were always short and annoyed it seemed.

The change takes effect on the first of April so I am going to make an appointment to see this new doctor ASAP.

So long Dr. F-Bomb.

I hope you take good fucking care of yourself!

When I read your last sentence, all I could think about what driving around Oceanside last April.

God that was a fucking great time...

I'm so fucking happy you're able to switch endos. Good fuck! I mean, luck.

If that one doesn't work and you are willing to drive to Glendora/Azusa I've got a good one for you.

I am very excited about this change for you!

Sounds like a great change. You can usually tell a lot about a doctor by how his office staff treats you. This sounds good already.
