Your Questions About How To Find A New Doctor

Daniel asks…

What would a stomach doctor do that a family doctor could not do?

For Acid Reflux. And would a family doctor have to refer me to a stomach doctor? And I know the name of the stomach doctor just dont know how to spell it and want no hate on that either. Thanks for the help!!!

New Niche Finder answers:

Gastroenterologists can do endoscopies, and may order tests that the family doctor is less familiar with. They can also distinguish if the acid reflux is something independent, or caused by gastroparesis, or something other underlying pathology.

What questions will the doctor ask me for blatter and kidney infection?

I have to go to the doctor tomorrow and I was wondering what kinda questions the doctor will ask me for a blatter and kidney infection.? Does anyone of a possible idea what will be asked?

New Niche Finder answers:

I’m sure they will take your vitals (blood pressure, temperature, heart rate) and the doctor will ask what your symptoms are. They can check for a urinary track infection (bladder or kidney) with a urine test. You will need to do a midstream clean catch (clean yourself and then pee a tiny bit into the toilet, then pee into the cup). They can then do an analysis to see if there are high levels of white blood cells or blood or anything that shouldn’t be there. If they suspect an infection, they will probably do a culture on the urine so they will know which antibiotics would work the best.

Most of the time if they find you have a UTI they will give your a broad spectrum antibiotic to help kill off the bacteria.

It is usually a very easy appointment, but I know it can be stressful dealing with doctors and other medical professionals sometimes.

Mandy asks…

What percentage does a bill collector pay a doctor when he buys the doctor’s outstanding bills?

When a patient does not pay a doctor he sometimes chooses to sell the bill to a collection agency who tries to collect the money. How much does the collection agency pay the doctor for his outstanding bills? I am guessing there is some percentage.

New Niche Finder answers:

It depends.

The Collection agency negotiates with the Creditor to determine how much they are willing to sell the debt for.

In some cases there might be an outstanding bill of $3,000 and the creditor (The doctor) is willing to sell it to a collection agency for $250. Anything that is paid above the $250 (in which the collection agency bought the debt for) would be considered profit (minus the expenses of course).

I’ve heard that in some cases collection agencies can purchase these debt’s for pennies on the dollar.

Just my two cents

Charles asks…

What season of Doctor Who should I start with?

I’ve never seen the show. All I know is the Doctor has a police box time machine and a screwdriver for some odd reason. Who carries a screwdriver with them everywhere? And can I watch Doctor Who on YouTube?

New Niche Finder answers:

Start at the beginning of the modern Doctor Who era with Episode 1 of Season 1 ‘Rose’, with Christopher Eccleston as the Doctor.

Then you will basically be able to make sense of most of the storylines. All of the episodes from Season 1 to Part 1 of Season 7 are available on DVD. Unfortuneately I can’t find the full episodes on YouTube.

Sonic screwdrivers are very useful, you will find out why he carries it around if you watch.

Ken asks…

What would cause a doctor not to be allowed hospital privileges?

My sister in law has a Doctor who does not have hospital privileges any reasoning behind this would be appreciated.

New Niche Finder answers:

Many doctors choose not to have hospital privileges, because there may be on-call requirements that go along with them. If the doctor does not want to acquire random patients who show up in the ER, he may have no choice but to not have privileges. There are hospitals which employ doctors specifically to treat patients admitted to the hospital; once the patient is discharged, he/she goes back to the original doctor for follow-up.

There is also the possibility that the doctor can’t get privileges because of problems with treatment, misbehavior, or some other reason.

You can call the doctor’s office and ask, you know.
