I’m looking to help a friend who is in need of a size-friendly doctor.
She is in Snohomish County, WA, and she needs a GP and a joint doctor; she has been diagnosed with partial lumbarization of the spine and thus has immense difficulty walking without pain. She has also been caught in a cycle of doctors either downplaying or outright dismissing very valid health concerns. There was a time period where she was in the hospital repeatedly, with a documented problem, which went dismissed or downplayed as just pain, when there were tests to confirm exactly what it was. She loves being out and about, photography, and is about to resume school – if there’s anything I would like for her, it is to resume school with minimal pain.
I’m in NY, across the country, and there’s very little that I can do, but if there is any way that you could help, please. I cannot see this continue for her.
