So far not pleased with current doctor outside the network, so will give this a shot.
Would you also agree to refund my Association Fees for the six months I am away?

You did a nice job biting your tongue on #74. Not all of us full timers have problems with our seasonal friends. I think "you know who" has other problems as well. Like trying to bypass the line at the deli counter?

The latest blood work was done on Feb 13th. Finally saw the results in my patient portal on Feb 17th; called that morning to discuss, emailed the doc on the 18th asking them to call me to discuss, called again this morning asking to speak with someone about the results - still waiting for a call back. This is no way to treat a patient. I have gone from very upset to very mad. Has anyone else experienced this with the villages health care system?
Yes. Both my husband and I have experienced this and worse. At our ages we have enough history with doctors to know the difference between good and bad care. I thank God we're out of that system.

As always, excellent doctors and nurses can unknowingly gain a bad reputation without doing anything wrong, based on what the office staff does or does NOT do.

And everyone working in the office can be made to look bad by what does or does not show up on their computer screens at the right time via electronic medical records. Office staff and software can "make or break" a medical office practice.

I have lived a pretty long life for a " temporary" person. it blows my mind sometimes how some really believe that because they live here full time that everyone who doesn't is a second class, or worse, citizen. Played golf with two the other day who came right out and said to my wife and I that "snowbirds" well....the're OK....they keep our costs down but I can't wait until it is 'less crowded'. Our group got 'locked out' of OUR T time last week" it is a good thing I have a hearing problem. My wife had the good sense not to tell me what he said until we were done.

As for the Villages a Healthcare, so far I am very impressed.
