    Man, oh man... This really sucks big time. I discovered that I have hernia (inguinal) and my physician recommended a surgical procedure which is fairly simple and done on an outpatient basis. He also recommended the surgeon to do it at a nearby hospital. I call the guy and a receptionist, a rude one, tells me (after finding out which insurance I have) that the doctor is not accepting new people! I mean this guy is a surgeon!!! It's not like he keeps his patients under the knife all the time! WTF???

    The surgery needs to be done in the next couple of months, otherwise the hernia can get into complications, so that means looking for another place to do it. Gotta love this system!!!

    On a positive note, maybe the surgeon is to busy because he has do things over?

    Yeah, no kidding... He is undisputedly one of the best in Phoenix area, as the word goes around. However, one never knows...

    Sounds like it went to his head, I would not be to fond of the idea of being under an ego-inflated knife anyway. Good luck on finding someone.

    Glad we have a good plan, and a good hospital. As a kidney transplant recipient I'm afraid I'd have real problems if we hadn't.
