VA Urology was able to get me in the very next day to see Dr. Timothy Bradford. VA Urology sat me up with online registration so that I wouldn't have to waste a lot of time in the waiting room.
I went through a similar process as with my GP. There were samples, needles, and comments of "this could be nothing, this could be something." I already knew the laundry list of potential causes.
We ended the visit with a brief discussion that a CT scan was warranted.
I sat with the scheduler, Nicole and made an appointment for the scan. I only had to wait two days.
Little did I know that Dr. Bradford and Nicole would become close colleagues of mine in the near future.
