Hello, i just joined today, this is my second post.
Dr. Slomba at Beth Israel is my Pain Management Doctor and
he is just really awful and i have complained to his bosses and higher because in the past he has withheld medication from me and/or his nurses did also. That is a very scary situation. I went to see him to review what we could do in terms of changing my meds to give me pain relief but
not to interfere with my COPD. I had specifically told him i was interested
in the Electrical Stimulant machine to be installed in my spine.the CSC
When i got there today, He was particularly as bad as he could be
He had an unidentified assistant sit in on the appointment.
And then he cut off almost all of my meds. No replacement.
No taking me down slowly off the Oxycodone. He did give me
the duragesic patches. That was all.
(1). i need new pain doctor pretty quickly, i am in the East
Village in NYC, if someone has someone great and kind
and caring and knowledgeable to recommend.
(2) I want to file coplaints against Dr. Slomba but I do not
know who or where or how to file complaints if someone
has a suggestion. I just don't think he should be practicing medicine
if he is going to mess around with my health and welfare and
obviously not care if he hurts me. What an awful person.
L3-L4 with hardware and cage, may 2006. Failed spine surgery. Now have fibromyalgia, nerve damage in legs and feet, in chronic constant pain. narcotic meds have left me with COPD. Not Fun.
