God, Tricare is ridiculous! We called the Dr. they assigned Evan to today, and they told us that they were no longer taking Tricare patients. So WHY didn't TRICARE know that??? So we ended up calling Tricare back and they assigned us to another Dr. So we called that one and set up an appointment for E's well baby visit. This is what really bugs me about the entire thing though. I can't find ANYTHING out about this Dr. Apparently they branched off from another group in May. Yes, MAY. But I still can't find ANYTHING about this person. The phone number isn't even in the phone book. I mean, how weird is that? But what else are we supposed to do? We don't know anyone here, and the people that work with dh all take their kids to Portsmouth, which isn't really an option for us. We decided to go ahead and go to this Dr. for the 15 month visit, and see what we think then. I know I won't find a Dr. like E had in SC. He was amazing and really went out of his way to help us more then once. If we are having this much trouble finding E's Dr. how the hell am I going to find an OB that I am comfortable with when/if I need one???

That's odd about the doctor but you might just have to interrogate him when you get there.

As for OBs, I'm sure the ladies at the playgroup have names and stuff;)

The thing is, since we are military, we get "assigned" doctors on base if they are accepting new patients. The only reason we are going through this with Evan is because none of the bases are taking pediatric patients. I already have been assigned to a primary care physician, and I know I will have to go to that person first for referrals to any other specialists. I wish I could have brought MY doctor up here with me when we moved!!!!
