The family practice docs do not all do OB care. The ones that do share call with the other OBs in their groups. ...

Seattle is very expensive, but has (IMO) more things to do and is definitely more friendly to non-car transportation. What it costs depends on what you want; a large (>1500 sq ft) house in city in good condition is going to cost you plenty, but if you don't mind a smaller house or living further out, it's less expensive.

In Janurary, they will start nerve and muscle testing to see how much nerve and muscle damage there is, but the surgeon...
