Short version: Was recently dismissed by my pm/pcp over false information that a hospital ED put in my health records. Even though I have proof & witnesses attesting that what the ED has written is false, my former pm/pcp will not even discuss the issue thus I've been sitting in severe pain for the last 3 weeks. I live in a small city in which EVERY medical facility is owned by this hospital and since this dismissal not one doctor in a 150 mile radius will see me.
I currently have an appt, 3 hours away, but that's been pushed back until the first week of Dec. & with my issues mixed with the cold, I can barely move most days. Although I'm fighting the hospital to amend my records I feel I have no other choices but to either visit the same ED dept or look on the street for something to make life bearable.
Does anyone here have any suggestions? I do have records & imaging in hand but idk if that helps.
