Trying to fire a pm doc who isnt doing anything but wanting to give shots in spine which ive had 10 sets of.If any ideas on the polite way to quit seeing doc please tell.


  • I haven't been able to change my PM doc yet but when I do I plan to just stop going. My PM really doesn't deserve an explanaition. As to my very first PM, I told him that he was fired right to his face. I loved it! If you are on a friendly basis with your doc, I really don't know what exactly to say except for the fact that in truth, we don't owe them anything. Remember, they are supposedly working for us. Yes, I know! I have a HORRIBLE PM who treats me very badly but sadly for me I happen to be stuck with him at the moment. I wish you the very best of luck with your new doc and hope that he treats you with the dignity that you deserve and more importantly, helps you to feel better.
  • how do u get records from pm doc
  • the records. I called ahead and they had them waiting for me. I signed a release and they gave me records. It was that simple.
  • You will need to write a letter to your doctor requesting to be released from their care and from their pain contract as well. Tell them you are seeking a second opinion concerning your treatment and would need your medical records to take with you to give to the new doctor.
    Good luck to you in this endeavor. ">image

    Tonight I noticed that you created a post with the basic same subject in a number of different categories. Duplicate posting is something that we really do not want to see on this site. While you may think it creates more exposure, instead it creates more confusion.
    For details about why, please read:

    Thank you

  • Just call the office and ask them to release your records. No need to give them any reason but if you feel that you must, say that you are going in a different direction with your care. I wish you well! :)))
