Default Pre op problems

I'm a mess. My general doctor quit and I can't find anyone to order blood work and such for pre op stuff. I'm suppose to be under the knife in Bogen on sept 20. I'm a nervous wreck. How do you guys find orthopedic surgeons in USA to help you after having surgery over seas? I could use some help if anyone will chime in. I'm feeling awful little bout right now

Take the list of needed bloodwork from Tim and go to a lab and get it ordered/done. Email it to your/Bertagnoli's site.....

Default Thanks

My old doctor is gone but his office arranged for me to see a PA. so I guess that's good. But I'm worried about after care. I'll tell you I'm not impressed with our medical system at all. I never went to doctor unless I had too. I would lag cause my wife goes to doctors like to order parts from motosport.com
