Okay, I faxed a bunch of stuff to my allergist(who is awesome, so I am confused here).....but he was more then eager to help write a letter to the school for the 504. But it's been a MONTH!!!!!!!!!!!!! and I am getting VERY impatient. Do you think it would be rude to call and say *HELLO*???? Or should I give him more time?? Thanks, I want to get this going, it's driving me nuts!

Personally, I think a month is plenty of time and I'd call and give a friendly reminder.

A month is definitely long enough - at this point, I'd assume the material had gotten buried/forgotten. So be prepared to resend stuff if necessary - doctors are very busy and not always organized!

I'd go one better-- call and offer to draft something for him to "work from" in order to save him some time.
(Our physician eventually just wanted me to e-mail it to him as an attachment that he could [i]print on letterhead.[/i] )
So I [i]KNOW[/i] the time-savings thing was HUGE. He would [i]never, ever, ever[/i] have given me his e-mail addy otherwise!! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img] I think he's been pleasantly surprised I haven't used it.
ET fix [i]

THANKS!! I called his nurse(she knows me by 1st name now) and told her I didn't want to sound pushy, but the school was waiting for me to bring in the letter, if he needed more info, or even decided he didn't want to do it(which I doubt) so hopefully she will call Monday and let me know *where* he is. I did copy a letter from here, changed the info to fit Jake....and signed it from our new allergist and our new Ped...just in case, I will just ask them to sign if they are comfortable.
I will see what the nurse says Monday, I can copy one ou with his name on it too, if that would be easier, I don't care! Thanks though, I did think a month was getting a bit long!
