I am a patient at the Lenoir city office. I have been in in severe pain in my hip since the second week in July. I went to Lenoir city office. Was given muscle relaxers and anti-inflammatory. And told if it was better in two weeks. That I was to call in and they would refer me to a orthopedic Dr. I tried for over a week to get this referral. They just never got this done. I ended up having to go to a walk in clinic because I was hurting so bad. They did exrays and refered me to a orthopedic Dr. He set me up to have a MRI. It was denied by insurance co. Because I didn't meet criteria. To meet criteria I had to be on anti-inflammatorys for six weeks. In the mean time I have had to go to another walk in clinic and three visits to the ER because of pain. Have had additional xrays two seperate ultra sounds.keep be told I need MRI.Now I have now been on anti-inflammatorys as required. Now I can't any help threw Cherokee. Meeting all kinds of resistance. I need your help i have hurt long enoug

I'm a firefighter/EMT and have seen the best and worst of people. Over the years I developed anxiety and sleep disorders. I wanted help without the …
Staff was very friendly, however, the NP I saw for my Panic Disorder, he was nice but wasn't willing to put me on meds I have been on in the past for anxiety and panic attacks that actually work. Instead they want to put you on meds made for depression (Zoloft) and an antihistamine for immediate relief instead of Xanax, Valium, or Klonopin....things actually made for anxiety. I left with more anxiety then I walked in with. You go to people for actual help and leave feeling worse then you walked in. I don't mind trying the Zoloft, but giving me antihistamine meds in place of Valium or Xanax, which is made for instant anxiety relief, that's just crazy. I'm going to try this stuff because it was given to me and so I can say I actually tried it, but I have no clue why, when I say I have issues with taking things I've never had, it's part of my anxiety, why they would give me two things I've never taken before; one of which is made for itching relief. In my opinion, they don't listen.
I was told to call everyday to check because all appointment spots were full, which I did. The second day I called I was given an appointment. I expected to have to call more often, but someone canceled their appointment, that day. It's something we have to deal with in life.
I appreciate everything the foundation does for the terminally-ill children! They are the best!!!
