I have been calling the Institute for Neuro Immune Medicine (INIM) once a week for 7 months now. The front desk staff at the University are instructed not to put calls (from those who are not existing patients) through to anyone at the INIM. So I have been unable to speak with anyone who might be able to provide a general idea of the wait to see a doctor – will it be 3 months, 6 months, a year, or should assume I will never get in? About 6 weeks ago they set up on option on their phone line so that prospective new patients could leave a message to get on a wait list. I did that, but again, I have no idea of when I might get in to see someone there. I've been frustrated and upset that I can't ask this question of anyone when it would mean the world to me to have even the slightest bit of information. My life is on hold (as it is for most of you here), and I don't think Dr. Klimas is aware of the frustration that a lot of prospective patients like myself are feeling from their initial experience at INIM --especially at a time when they are already feeling so ill, alone, and perhaps neglected by the medical community. I think if Dr. Klimas knew, she might insure that they were given some information by her staff about how long the wait time is to get in to see a doctor there, (posting an update on their website or facebook page would be a helpful and easy thing to do). The Institute for Neuro Immune Medicine is my first choice for healthcare at this time and that is why I’ve been so invested in hearing just a few details from them. Can any existing patients there suggest what I can do in order to find out when I might get in to see a doctor there? Would any exiting patients be willing to make an inquiry on my behalf? Thanks so much.
