Gosh Darn-it, my Endo has decided to leave his practice at our area's largest medical clinic. I am not one that gets sentimental about doctors but I do sorta like this guy. I suspect he is leaving for greener pastures or maybe to return to his home town. I wish him well.
The medical clinic has already said that there will be no replacement Endo for nine months to a year but they are trying to enlist the services of a nurse practitioner to work under close supervision of the remaining Endo at the clinic.
This leaves me with choices to make. Should I hang with the NP until another Endo is recruited or go looking outside of this clinic for a new Endo (the choices are few). Then there is a third option of just working with my internist for a while until things work themselves out. Option 3 sounds appealing but my pump warranty is about to expire and my internist is not willing to prescribe a new one.
Choices, choices, choices. I hate these kind of choices.
