It is always difficult with a new doctor. Did you simply get a feeling of unease when with him, or a feeling of dislike? There is always a period of adjustment for me with new doctors, and I find many times that the unease lightens and goes away the second or third time I visit. If there was something about the doctor that really gave you pause, or he or she was doing something that is a big no no for you, do something about it. It always bugs me when doctors have staff that work for them who are either too lazy to get an answer or just don't care enough to try. In my opinion and after working in a doctor's practice as both front office and medical support staff, there is always an answer to a question and that is what they are paid to do, provide good care to patients. Get your answers before having the surgery!
As for the workers comp not paying, that would drive me batty too. It's not right what workers comp and insurances put us through, all for a few bad apples.
Hope you are having a good evening. Vent all you want!
The worst sin towards our fellow creatures is not to hate them, but to be indifferent to them. That's the essence of inhumanity. George Bernard Shaw
