MIT medical recommendations?

I haven't seen a doctor in a very long time. The last time I tried, I got given to a "nurse practioner" who gave me one of the biggest pieces of bullshit diagnoies I've ever had. I really should see a doctor, as I'm behind on immunizations and I should also get tested for thyroid levels (for various reasons.) I have MIT medical through Greg's work. Greg likes his doctor well enough (who is also listed as my doctor) but that doctor is always busy, so more than likely you get shuttled off to a nurse practitioner.

Anyone have a recommendation for different MIT medical doctor? Things that are important to me is that the doctor is willing to say, "well, I don't know, but here's why I'm guessing this..." needs to not treat me like a hypochondriac when I'm trying to give them as much information as possible, especially when I haven't seen a doctor in ages, and isn't so busy as I might actually get to see them.

I think that feeling that I'm bothering them by giving information is the biggest thing from keeping me from going to the doctor.
