I’ve been trying to get through to the cardiologist who worked with my dad in Philly, but I’ve been bounced around from department to department and left messages for a week. I know the guy is an amazing surgeon, but by the time I get together with him I could be dead from old age.

I’m just going with my own hospital–they have a great rep, and they’re in my PPO plan. It’s frustrating–by now I might have already found out that this is a minor thing I don’t even need to worry about.
