    Where in Alberta are you?
    Are you closer to Edmonton or Calgary or are you from a rural district? I will help out if I can. Denamay

    Let me know if you're close. It won't be an easy task, as so many docs aren't accepting new patients. My mom & sis work at an emerg in this city & can get a hold of a list of docs accepting new patients. You could also call the Calgary Health Link Line. It's 24 hours & they will at least point you in the right direction, the number is in the phone book under hospitals in the front(pink pages). None of the 6 docs in my office are acceting new patients. let me know if I can help you out. Just to let you know I've been waiting upwards of 9-12 months for specialists, tests, MRI. Be prepared to be pushy in these parts, especially if your body is telling you to listen up. I've had to resort to going to emerg when doc wasn't taking me seriously. Goodness if you have to do that here, take enough stuff as you'll be spending 12-24 hours there. Good luck, Take Care, Laura

    I can't help you. I've spent alot of time in Camrose area, but not at the doc! I would do what I suggested & get a list from the hospital. I'm sure there was one there. Or the closest one. Good luck, Laura
