Dr. G tells me that I've suddenly developed allergies, even though there is no history of allergies in my family, and puts me on Allegra D & Flonase

If you have no history of allergies in your family, and Dr. G did not have allergy tests run on you, why did you take allergy medicine?

If and only if that doesn't work, he'll send me to an allergist

Ask to see an allergist before taking allergy medicine. A referral is easy enough to get. I just call my doc and ask for a referral, and BAM! It's done. No third degree given.

Dr. T informs me that I've either developed acid reflux or asthma

Again, why take medicine for something unless you *know* you have it?

Not to say the doctors were not at fault, but I hate to see someone abdicate their health issues to someone else, even a *doctor*. My grandfather was a doctor and my mother taught me to ask questions, ask for tests, not take any medicines unless I know I need them, etc.

I would just state the facts (sequence of events) in your letter and be sure to state that "I am incredibly angry that whenever I said I wasn't getting better I was just brushed off with more drugs."

Good Luck with it,
