I think it's allergic conjunctivitis and an abrasion but I'm not sure... said the doctor. I'm sending you to a specialist. 

Arriving at the point where doctor and patient connect, he said, it's no conjunctivitis, it's not an abrasion, it's a rare ulceration. You could go blind. But I can't treat you until your primary care doctor sends a note to the insurance company. Come back another time. 

Primary care doctors are never available when you need them. It's in their contract with the insurance companies.
