do you have a primary care doctor?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
i did but they said they wouldnt help or do what my meso doctors said needed done becasue its pain medication . not even just until i get into the pain management which will take a month. my old primary just ripped my off all my medications with no warning and ever since ive been trying to find a new one and none of them want to do anything.

why did they do that?

did you fail a drug test?

the management i was with came under review.

my primary just kept passing me off to other doctors because no one here knows anything about mesothelioma
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
my doctors were fine especially my primary with her patients smoking marijuana. she prefered it over the opiates but now that i need the treatment and new doctor i dont smoke and havent even taken a test they just dont want to help unless its pain management. but i need a doctor to help until then and i have run out of hope and i am on my last try. my other cancer team surgical docs and oncologist are in omaha nebraska and kansas city missouri and cant do anything without the help of a doc here in wichita
