Green Light for Tests, But Need Referal

"Dear, Dr. XXXX
I have been tracking my symptoms for a few months and based on my symptoms and the research I have done and people I have talked to, I elected to do testing for Cushing's disease. I did a 24hr UFC and my results are attached. It is 3X the normal high. Because of this, I requested a second opinion froma specialist in Seattle. Baised on his recomendation, I am asking for a referal to see him. They need it for me to cross state lines. They have requested the following faxed to them:
" Refer to Dr. William Ludlam for extensive workup and treatment for potential complex Cushing's Syndrome and pituitary disease. "
Because of my test result, we got insurance on me just in case I am positive. If you have any questions, you can call me, or Dr. Ludlum's Coordinator

I was given the go a head for testing from Swedish and my *spit*insurance company after a $500 deductible. But now I need to convince my primary doctor or the doctor I did the test with for a referral . Both are very egotistical, but since my doc wont loose any money on the deal, I went with him first. I got a conformation that he got it and will get back with me. Whatever prayers or good vibes you can spare, please send them my way!

Thanks. I received a response already. He wants me to see his endo in Plano. I respectfully asked again for the referral to Dr. Ludlam because "two doctors I have seen so far wont listen, and Dr. Ludlam does." I was good and didnt mention that he was one of those two doctors. Waiting on his response.
