Connecting moms in Polk County, Fla.
I'm 24 years old and an employee with the school board. I need to find a good primary doctor. I've been really sick lately and was in the hospital last week where the doctor's there thought I have vertigo, and the meds they prescribed me gave me horrible side effects. Upon an exam, three suspicious lumps were found in my right breast and I am going on Monday for an ultrasound/mammogram.
Bottom line is that I need a good primary in Lakeland. Northside preferably. I haven't needed one until now and with the way I have been feeling these last few months, something just isn't right with me. I have just been... not right. I can't put my finger on it.
Does anyone have any suggestions for a good doctor on the northside that is reliable and easy to talk to?
I use Trinity Medical Center on Florida Ave. Awesome Drs there. Jennifer Vick is my primary dr there and Dr Adam parker is my pain specialists.. I was also referred to Dr Pendes when I had the problems with my breasts. I found her very easy to talk to and she took the time to really listen. Their number is 863-646-4000. You might have to wait a few weeks to get in. Good Luck !
Allyson, good for you for listening to your intuition and body. Get better and I'm so sorry to hear of your hospitalization. I hope this is the beginning to healing and healthiness.
I love my primary physician, Dr. Maria Karina Solorzano-Klapprott but she's in the Bartow Watson Clinic office.
I have heard RAVE reviews about Dr. Ricardo Perez who has a south Lakeland office. Not sure if you're interested in heading this way but his office address is:
4725 U.S. Hwy 98
Suite 102, Lakeland, FL
We go to Dr. Hardigan at Watson Clinic. He is awesome and will not send you for tests unless he feels you really need them. He doesn't like seeing people tossing money away on unneeded tests, medications or doctors
