This is long and I am sorry. I have a new Doctor who really cares about
his patients and he wants to send me to a pain clinic and I agreed to go. I have been waiting for 2 months to hear from the pain clinic. Finallu I get a call from them and they refused to see me because of something my former doctor wrote on my records. It took them 2 months to get his records.
Let me take you back to this "doctor". I went to him for 8 years. I hated to go but I was on Tenncare and they picked him out for me. He uses the f word every other word or two and uses God's name in vain all the time. His office is dirty and his staff are as unprofessional as he is. The normal waiting time to see him was 6 to 8 hours, yeah, that's right. When you have been going so long and he has all your records and you have so much wrong with you, you hate to change, KWIM? He said he would help me get on disability. I had been trying for 15 years. He wrote them a letter and told them that I never wanted to take naecotics and that I should be on disability.He wanted me to see one particular lawyer. I already had a lawyer who was working on it for me. When I told him, he blew up!!!! He told me to drop him and go with his lawyer. That was going to be embarrasing to me. He told me he had only wrote that letter for 3 people in his whole carreer and all 3 used the same lawyer and all 3 won. He said you won't listen to a thing I tell you.!I had told him earlier that I had been approved if only I could prove I was disabled before 1998, as that was when my coverage ended. So he wrote the letter and told them he had treated me since 1998( which was true) for these problems. Then after a month or so , he asked me if got disability and I said no not yet. He accused me of lying to him to get him to write the letter. The letter sounded to me just like I told him, that i would be approved but could not be paid unless I could prove I was disabled before 1998. Other people read this letter and thought the same thing. I was badly injured and I was disabled in 1991. The pain had never let up since then. So that day I was in his office I told him I needed refills. I was completely out of Hydrocodone, Soma, Trazodone. and Neurontin. He said to me, come back Thursday (this was Monday) and I will write you some refills. I could tell he was mad. So on Wednesday I got a letter from him saying he would be unable to see me again!!!!!! No explanation. I had lost my insurance and was desperate. I didn't know what to do. The withdrawal was horrible. I stayed in bed and cried and I never slept for 7 nights. I thought I was dying several times. I thought I was having seizures, it felt like things were crawling on me, I sweated and then chilled, I was numb in my face. Iwas so irritable abd nervous and condused. I thought I was having a stroke. You get the point.
Now back to the pain clinic. I asked thrm why they would not take me, They said my doctor had discharged me. I asked, did he say why? Was it because I lost my insurance? She said that wasn't it. but we can't take you and I can't tell you what he said.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now this good Doctor thast I have now will get the report from this clinic and I am afraid he will drop me too. I don't know what to do . Don't I have a right to know what this doctor has said about me?
