I had a long wait, but Dr. Crosby and his scribe were attentive and kind. I have a couple of follow up questions for Dr. Crosby, and am not sure how to communicate with him in advance of my next appointment in late January. Hopefully, I can ask them here:
1. I made an appointment with Dr. Fautheree, as Dr. Crosby requested. His first available appointment is February 13. I’m scheduled then, but am having increased issues with mobility. I fell badly two days ago because my left leg didn’t support me. Since I won’t be seeing Dr. Fautheree until February, and he almost certainly will want a new MRI of my cervical spine, can Dr. Crosby order the MRI at Dr. Fautheree’s facility so that I will have that done by the time I am seen? That way I won’t have to wait until late February for a treatment decision by Dr. Fautheree (assuming an initial visit on 2/13, a scheduled MRI after that, and a return visit afterwards to discuss findings).
2. I haven’t been able to fill my Tramadol or Norco scripts because, I am told, there is a nationwide shortage. I do have some Tramadol from last summer that I can take PRN. Is Tramadol more effective if taken regularly, such as bid or tid, or should I just take it when my back is killing me?
Thanks, and if this isn’t the way to reach Dr. Crosby, can whoever reads this pass my questions along?
Thanks and happy holidays,
