getting past the gp

Val ,

On one occasion when I was unsure of my gp’s diagnosis (or lack of one)
I found a gp that was taking new patients. This is time consuming but in the end I felt more confident in my original doc! I did the same as you however in going to the er after a bout of passing out. My bp would just drop. THe er doc is the one that referred me to the neuro. I think that gp’s for some reason are less likely to refer a patient than er docs, maybe because the er docs don’t want us back clogging up their dept.!
