Hey all, I really don't feel like asking my parents about this, because I will just get a life lesson and a half about wasting money and what not. But, I messed up my ankle/foot a few years ago. Its never really healed right, still swollen to this day, In constant pain (more or less discomfort, major discomfort). I was suppose to get a MRI or whatever they do to check out ankles after the incident, but I lost my job, and my insurance. With the Health Care Reform, I got put back onto my parents insurance policy, and they believe if its not broken, don't fix it. I moved a few hours away, so I can't go to my family physician. I moved to a city, with family physicians, multiple hospitals, specialists and everything. I honestly have no clue on what kind of doctor I need to see. Can I call a hospital and tell them my issue and ask them who I would see? Do I go strait for a specialist? I called a family physician, but they want me to send my medical records to them, and the physician will evaluate me to see if he'll accept me for a patient. I'm only going to be living here for a year so I dont' want to waste their time on just one visit or one issue. Any help on what to do would be great.
