Re: Infection in jaw/Referral

Dear Dr. Connolly:

This is to confirm my out of network appointment and referral.

I have an appointment with Dr. Thomas Dodson at Mass General Hospital on May 27, 2003 at 1:00 PM.

I called Anthem to verify the referral to get my insurance number to present at my appointment and they indicated they do not have a referral. They indicate that my primary care physician will need to call them at 1-800-531-4450 as it will take time to process it.

Could your office contact them to start the referral process?

On Friday I will confirm my appointment with Dr. Dodson to make sure the appointment is still on and has not been bumped or cancelled.

The appointment however may end up being mute. The dosage of augmentin is no longer keeping the infection down. This morning it was back in my ear and the area of infection is not contracting but appears to be expanding. At the present rate, I do not know if I will be able to hold out until Tuesday. Is there a stronger dosage of Augmentin or another antibiotic that will work better than augmentin?

Sincerely,

Bernard J. Wolfe, Jr.
