    Hi Jen,
    Please talk to Lisa and get the names, addresses and phone numbers of all the doctors she has in your area that are fully conversant with HCM. Then call them in turn until you find a doctor who will accept assignment from your insurance company – and the job is done.

    But please do not throw away the list. In the event you do not happen to like this doctor, you can continue down the list until you find someone you prefer. I wouldn’t be surprised if most of them would be happy to take a Medicaid assignment.

    As far as hospitals go, it would probably be wisest to use one of the hospitals where the doctor you choose is accredited. That way you get to have your own doctor treat you when you are hospitalized. In the event of an emergency though, if that hospital is not too close, you might pick the best of the ones closest to you. Time might be the governing factor in where you go – or where they take you in the event you call for an ambulance or one of the EMT units.

    Hope this gives you some ideas on how to get yourself a doctor you like who knows about HCM, and which hospital to choose once the doctor is selected.

      Try Cardiology Associates of Cincinnati, Dr. David Tondow or Dr. John Wilson. They are with Good Samaritian Hospital, 513-861-1260. I'm happy with them.
