I have been going to this pain management clinic for over 2 years have never had an issue with the urine test and 6 months ago I was asked what doctor did I prefer to see and I stated that I wanted to see just one of them instead of the other one. For the reason that it was her uncle that caused the damage and the pain that I deal with now he almost choked me to death and beat me. Causing me to have 3 discs out in my neck two of them were herniated several protruding disc in the middle section of my back and two discs out in the lower back and one of them is herniated which causes severe pain in the lower back and foot pain in both feet. I had never been asked if I prefer one over the other until that day and the nurse knowing the situation. I felt comfortable that it would be confidential that I preferred the one I chose to see me. And then I receive a letter that they will no longer see me because alcohol showed up in my urine test. I drink a couple glasses of wine a couple nights a week I have not changed my routine since the day I've been going and the doctors have been aware that I drink wine they have never stated that it was against the policy . They have actually told me that it wasn't a problem. I called requesting the doctor to call me back that there's no way that alcohol showed up in my system and that maybe it was the mouthwash that I used before I went in. The nurse called me back the doctor refuse to talk to me and said that she was done with me not to bother her again. The nurse stated that I had failed the test to other times. Not one time did the doctor ever come in and state that anything showed up besides what was supposed to be there in my chest and the nurse stated that I failed it in November. January and this last visit. September was the visit that the nurse asked me who I preferred and after that they're stating I have failed every drug test since then stating that alcohol showed up. It just seems odd that I would start failing the drug test after I stated who I wanted to see. And shouldn't my doctor have come in and told me after each time that something else alcohol showed up in my urine. Is there a protocol that they should come in and confront you and let you defend yourself?
