‘I don’t want the boss to think I’m the problem’

Dear J.T. & Dale: I just joined a company and have to work with a woman who's senior to me. She does great work, but I noticed that she takes a ton of sick days and has a lot of medical appointments. Our boss doesn't seem to mind, and she definitely tries to make up the time, but it's a challenge for me when I'm on deadline and need something from her and she's not available. Should I bring this up with my boss? I don't want the boss to think I'm the problem. — Eugene
