Hi, I’m desperately searching for a pcp who after being under his or her care would write me my medical necessity letter. I’m crying day and night and feel so lost. I’m in south Florida please

They did but that pcp brushed off my request for a referral despite me meeting all the criteria. He honestly did pay me much attention. I’m hoping to find one that has listened

Try going through the team/center/practice which you hope to have surgery with (and insurance will cover- important) They may have a PCP list that they use for patients seeking new ones / medical necessity letters.

Good Luck 💙

How about PCP that your surgeon's have worked with in the past? aThose might be more obliging. 6eah I hate having someone not listen because they haven't moved on to next patient in their mind. Had one once that asked" Now what medicines do I haveYou on?" Yipes Stripes, You don't Remember? I know some things you have to take at close to lethal level to be effectivem I'm sure you wouldn't want to sicken me or put me needing to go to our local hospital because you overdosed me, not good for either of sum Please pay me the courtesy of listening, okay?

Exactly! I was already embarrassed to asked but after falling and scraping my knee trying to exercise I knew it was time. I even cried out of frustration and he still ignored me completely.😥😥😥 I don’t wanna take a chance and be embarrassed again without first knowing if a pcp is open to surgery for weight loss
