Is it me? Am I wrong? Or, is he crazy? Yesterday,I got in to c him cuz I was concerned.the toe nail on my little toe was all black and i thought maybe my foot wasn't getting blood or something from the L-5 herniation. My foot's pulse is strong so he said its nothing but I brought him the disc from of the MRI. He started to yell at me because I went to a local orthopedist and I didn t call him or my neurosurgeon when i fell.I tried to explain that the reason is cuz I have 5 speed car,(they both r about 30mls away) cant drive well and cuz it takes forever to get appts. with those two Dr's. and i could get in right away to this ortho.He basically threw my records at me and said."go back and see him"..Is he crazy? I told him I could see whoever i wanted to and he said no I cant. He said if i was paying outta pocket, than yes, i could.I have medicare w/empire as a secondary insurer. I told him "I pay the premiums" ! This ortho is retiriing and no longer going to perform surgery so he sent me back to the neuro. This PC Dr said well.."go to someone else in his group" After screaming at me for about 10 mins, he finally called my neuro and got me in for today @ 3. When i called them and explained about the herniation the other day, they said the earliest they could see me would b 4-13. Anyaway, isnt it my right to c who I want to and when i want to? Is he right?He also said that of course since i let this ortho order the MRI,than of course the neuro is not gunna see me right away. Is this ethical? I dont think so !
