Samain Stent Moon
Well. The blitz worked. With e-mails and phone calls Kate and I hit several different buttons in the local medical establishment. Kate first called the interventional radiologists. Yes, the request for the procedure had gone in, nothing yet. No, they can’t push the insurance company. E-mail to Dr. Gidday, our internist. “Kate needs our help.” Phone call to the referral folks at New West Physicians. “We can’t see the specialists request. But let me take the information and have Desiree (Dr. Gidday’s nurse) get back to you.” With this person I pressed urgent, urgent, urgent. Several times. Later Kate got a call back with a positive signal. She contacts the radiologist today to set up at time for the stent placement. And may the congregation say, amen.
