WOW Saw another pain doc yesterday, lucky my hubby drove me and came in. And glad he didn't deck the doc.
He starts out by asking me what issues I was having briefly, then looks at meds my pcp is trying, and quickly very loudly says I don't do meds here all I do is injections to deal with pain.
He asked about my past surgery and he was so impatient, very condescending he barely looked at me.
When my husband spoke he was apologetic saying oh he believes I'm in pain, but asked how many other pain docs I have seen in this building. wth
I was fuming as anything I said was diminished. He said well we all have to keep active and I can send you to pt. but even getting a mri would be very costly. (then I said so if I had my good union insurance you would have ordered one asap.
He was an idiot, and I will be writing my review of him soon.
He only did a 5 sec exam. My hubby was speechless at this point. And he has me walk and do the quick stand on toes stuff, was a bad feeling. The way he was very loud at first and said so what do you want me to do.
Well I lost it, i said well it seems to me you don't give a crap for me or women in general, my husband is not the patient here.
And seems that since I have state insurance you seem to have issues with that.
I have seen some idiots in the years, this one takes the top of pile.
I said I hope you have a better day, as the way you treat new patience I see why you only have office hours 4 hrs a wk.
I don't expect a magic pill, just some human compassion. Or how about respect.
I was glad hubby came to see what some docs are like.
He was not happy at all, and was still telling doc few things. I just said forget it he's just another ignorant doc.
So life goes on, and I am going to keep calling around and find someone, human to help.
