Unfortunately it comes down to the doctor. I am not one for going to the doctor for a cold..... and months after an anxiety attack on a plane that was so bad I had to have the plane abort its taxying I sought an Intergrated practitioner, in an intergrated clinic. I can only say that it has not been the caring indepth experience that I had expected. Even though I gave a graphic account of my symptoms I was subjected to a miryiad of tests (at a great cost to myself) that were of no use and after many weeks and a great deal of money to the doctor he finally went back to the initial notes of our first meeting. There in front of him was my problem which was confirmed by yet another blood test. This clinic has a policy of not advising clients of thier tests unless they pay for and attend another consultation with the doctor. So is it intergrated health or intergrated profit?
