    Need help from female military members

    Advertisements
    A young soldier in DHs platoon REALLY needs to see an OB...NOW. She has been trying to go to the Troop Medical Clinic for a few days in a row and they keep telling her they can't see her, come back tomorrow.

    As DH and every other peoson in the command staff are male, they really haven't had to deal with this.

    Can this soldier get an appointment directly with an OB on base, or must she get a referral with the TMC? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    She should call the local appointment line for the military treatment facility closest to her and make an appointment with a general physician and go from there. If it's an emergency she should go to the ER where they will put her in touch with the right doctors for her needs.

    Thank you Solstice. The first time I called the appointment line, before your post, they told me they won't handle appoints for military members, only the dependents. After your post, I called them back and talked to a supervisor. The supervisor was able to get the soldier an appointment without going back to the TMC.

    Thanks again very much. After your help, I got mean... and it worked!
