Kaiser "Hands-Off" Doctor?
Hello, after a family history of bad experiences with health-insured medical practices, I've been happy without health insurance for years, paying out of pocket for occasional care with a focus on alternative care (or seeing doctors in other countries). Now the law requires me to have insurance and my new Medicare goes a long way to paying for it. Can anyone recommend a Kaiser Oakland doctor who doesn't insist on "preventive" care and testing? I'm in good health and want to enjoy it. I guess I'm looking for a doctor who will help me do something health-wise if I feel I need it, but who won't impose on me to do things that don't make sense to me or how I know to care for my health. For example, about 25 (!) years ago, by chance I once saw a nice Kaiser fellow named Ted Tsukayama--I see he's still there--does anyone know him? Or can you recommend someone else you think might be comfortable with this kind of "hands-off" care? Male or female. If I ask, I'm open to a doctor's suggestions, thoughts, opinions, of course, but don't want to feel pushed into things I don't want to do, or judged. Thank you!!!!!!!
