So I'm calling to find a pediatrician in Reno... Call here, call there..

Oh, we don't take new patients, or we don't take that insurance, or we have a block on that insurance, or we only take newborns..

What the heck??

I was finally able to get in one place who first told me they only take newborns and after telling her we were coming from out of state she said we'd be hard pressed to find someone to take us but that she would do it.

What's the deal in Reno?

not just peds.. all doctors in the Reno Tahoe Carson Area's most do not take medicare or medicaid as many seniors and low income are finding out. making it almost impossible to find a GP or any doctor besides the emergency room. IF anyone has a recommendation for the op or even for people on medicare or medicaid do tell.

Other Poster did you ask them when they finally accepted you what was the reason? Be interesting to know.
