RE: [IP] DO as my doc???



My mother is on Medicare and I think you're fine with a DO -- you could call
the DO's office and ask if they accept Medicare, or look them up online and
see if Medicare is listed as an insurance they accept.   I have group HMO
through work, and for years my PCP was a DO.
