  1. Dr. K,
    Never heard back from you after sending you an email last week. Not much has changed from then. Still wondering why there’s been no word on the referral for Kelly. Also, like I said earlier, 10 days is a long time. Hope to hear back from you this time.

  2. Do you accept BCBS ga state benefits?
