I have had 3 appts with my current medi-cal dr.  I have never felt great about him but this last appt left me in tears.  When I epxlained to him I was having shooting pains and tried to show him the area hecut me off and didn't even look up from his paper before dismissing it as "a normal part of pregnancy." When I asked if he could at least look at the area I'm speaking of he said " No I already told you what it was and am already running behind."

     I no longer feel comfortable seeing him, and having a heck of a time finding someone in the San Fernando Valley who accepts Medi-Cal. I'm scheduled for another appt in 2 weeks and am DESPERATE to find someone else before then.


Thanks for any help you ladies can give

Sounds like Dr. Kossari?


I had multiple bad experiences with him before switching to a midwife. I couldn't find any other options in the area too.  Just wanted to commiserate and say good luck...hug2.gif

The only one I know of is Dr. Ling in Burbank. He's always been friendly and I've really never felt rushed, but I also don't stick around to ask questions.
