"Doctor not caring about other issues"

About: Australian Diabetes Council

(as the patient),

I have the Late Effects of Polio; full time in a wheelchair now; asked my doctor when I first saw her that I badly needed help dealing with all the problems associated with LEOPS. She was good in the beginning but now I feel she only 'sees' me as a diabetic; I have a good diabetic team. How do I get her to listen to me? I feel so useless going to her. But in Broken Hill I have not found it easy to find a doctor who will listen to me. What do I do?
