    Cool-blue Rhythm OT - General MD suggestions.

    Looking for a general MD/family doctor. I currently have Humana insurance so it would be a plus if any recommendation was on the Humana list of doctors. Scottsdale or Phoenix location would be preferred.

    I go to Dr. James Vogt on Bell Rd, between Tatum and like 52nd. Great guy. Started going to him when i moved here 2 years ago. My med file is about 10 times larger than it should be for someone my age, so I see him more often than I wish. He generally avoids overkill in trying to treat anything and tries to keep meds to a minimum...but gets the job done.

    Dr Lynne Pirie D.O. that is on 7th St and T-bird. She is in an office with no other doctors, has her own PT on site, never rushes the patient (so you be later than your appt- but she will take the same time with you) and really knows sports type injury and muscle/bone injury. She is a Ms. Universe winner from the 80's and still has the strength to do adjustments well. Unsure if she is Humana but I know she was other insurance,

    The only reason I do not go anymore is that my insurance is VA now.

    Dr. Joe Reynoso.

    Following a bout of bad valley fever about 10 years ago, I had a persistent cough and asthma-like symptoms when I exercised. My insurance at the time required referrals from a primary care physician to see specialists. My understanding of the plan was that it was set up so that the primary care physician would lose money if he referred me to specialists. I bounced around a couple of doctors who tried treating me with inhalers and other drugs (to absolutely no effect). A co-worker encouraged me to see Joe.

    Joe walked into the exam room, introduced himself, and said something like, "You're 25 years old, that's very young. You shouldn't be coughing. Let's fix that."

    After a brief but thorough history and exam, Joe sent me to GI and allergy specialists. The GI doc diagnosed me with GERD. The allergy "poke test" showed me as being 4+ on a 1-4 allergy scale for many common airborne allergens. Treatment (prilosec/allergy shots) followed. No more cough. No more breathing problems/allergies.

    I learned two things from all this:

    1) Joe is a great doctor. Very smart and cares about his patients, willing to do what is right for them.
    2) If you have a doctor whose first inclination is to treat symptoms without finding a root cause, find a new doctor.

    Good luck and regards,

    Sam

    Dr. Cohen my ear, nose & throat guy & the lung specialist I have seen. Have me on Nexum, both said the majority percentage of all chronic coughs are related to stomach gases.

    Thanks for the suggestion!
