Last year my sleep doc informed me he was dropping all his patients and going in another direction. My medical was due the end of February but due to the flue, travel, and procrastination I didn't get a new doc lined up timely. Last week when I called to schedule an initial consult with a new sleep doc, I was told the earliest appointment is April 20th. So, my SI is past due and by the time I get everything I need (compliance report and letter from Dr.) it will be late April. I'm wondering if I can simply ground myself until May 1st and essentially it all goes away?
