  • Need Dr in Florida!!!

    Hi Everyone,

    It's been a while since I have been on here. I made a move to Port St Lucie, Florida!! I checked the ICN Physician Resources to find a new doctor. Unfortunately, the closest one to me is an hour away (with no traffic).

    Does anyone have any referrals that might be closer to me?? I am about 45 miles north of West Palm Beach and about 30 miles south of Vero Beach.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!

        I am north of you and have two docs to suggest--I live on Merritt Island. I have a good uro in Orlando that is very good with IC. I also have a local uro in Cocoa Beach. I am nurse and my company has a branch in Vero and I'm sure I can round up some names. PM me if you'd like.
