* Abbreviated letter of complaint* Sometime in May 2011 I went to the Hospital with my daughter in law I had been vomiting and had strong gastric pain.Dr x walks in.Briefly takes some history.Does NOT examine me.Tells me that I have food poisoning that there is nothing he can do for me and to go home and drink gatorade. He suggested that I be seen by the other E.R.doctor!After all he said YOU DON'T LOOK OR ACT SICK!
On 8/01/2011 I went to the Hospital.I reported similar symptoms I had been throwing up copious amounts and had fecal incontinence (diarrhea) in large amountsThis time I had brought documents from an endoscopy I had on that friday.I had the specialists reports that states Crohn's Disease SEEMS dormant but Celiac disease is over active.I also had a seperate note that I usually bring with me that states my specialist's Recommendations when I need to go to the emergency. Dr x walks in the room and I was rather shocked to see him .I immediately stated ''aren't you the Doctor who refused to treat me the last time I was here''.He shrugged his shoulders and said WHATEVER!!!He ordered an I.V. be started,gave me stematil and what I believe was morphine for pain.This helped subside my pain and nausea a BIT.At approximately 10:30 p.m. Dr x comes into the room to tell my husband and I that he would like to keep me overnight and see how things go by the following day.I was given a bit of water to sip which tasted like sour milk to me. Dr x explained that this was just a sign of GERD.My husband went home.The I.V. was not restarted even if I could not tolerate the water.I became so dry throughout the night.I didn't void until the day after I went home.I was changed over to a different bed,so that ''I could sleep better''.On three different occasions the nurses would come in and offer me clonazepam to help me sleep but I declined.I knew I couldn't sleep because of the pain++++++ and nausea.This was not a case of anxiety
Also since I noticed how short tempered a nurse was with me I decided to try to help myself.I went to the bathroom to see if I could actually void and I was getting bowel activity.I also picked up my own K basin and facecloth.Walking around had not been a good idea.I started having more bouts of nausea with bile coming up.The nurses came by again and told me I should not have done that and I should ring instead.Well,although I did not tell her,I helped myself because I did not want to deal with that impatient nurse.I understandthey do work long,hard hours.
I slept briefly but kept waking up. .That morning Dr x tells me that I am the healthiest person that he's ever met, that I slept soundly ALL night since he had checked up on me 4 different times and I was snoring,that REAL crohn's patient do not behave like I do.Real Crohn's patients do not sleep at all and the fact that I slept and snored showed that I was completely comfortable and pain free Really!!! Was he kidding me.That Crohn's patients DO NOT get up to go to the bathroom...So I ask him so what do they do, have bowel movements on the floor.I looked at him in total disbelief.I don't care if my bloodwork came back ''normal''I was so sick and I knew it.So I got quite angry,I gave him a piece of my mind, I told him I was reporting him because he treats me like a ''junky'' that this was my second episode with him and I was not having it.I tried to leave while he is asking me to stay so that they can try other tests.I asked him what for I'm healthy!!!!Uhm now he wants run tests ,why ?Because I said I was reporting him???
The first time he refused to treat me he was still a student and his defense was that he was working under another doctor.Which was word for word what the nurse told me previously about
this doctor.Wow he was being coached by nurses.Also the nurse in question also told me word for word that I slept well all night so much so that I snored. Can someone tell me why they kept offering me clonazepam to sleep then.Now I really knew that they were coaching each other this was no mere coincidence.Now he was a ''fresh graduate'' but he still approached me in the same manner.My husband showed up at that point and asked Dr x to have a a few words withhim.He then told my husband that he checked on me twice and that I slept well.I interrupted him and reminded him that he was insisting while he talked to me that he checked up on me 4 times and now he was down to two times Once again I was given the famous ''Whatever'' I do understand that many many people out there have drug addictions.But for US who have actual diseases that are confirmed DO NOT DESERVE to be treated like he treated me.It happens too often, I have many friends that suffer from crohn's and also report poor care,and suspiscious looks from staff.I 'm here to say enough is enough.If Dr cannot tell the difference between someone who has a drug addiction and someone who has a chronic disease then what is he doing practicing medecine? Now tell me should I fear retaliation from staff at Hospital.Should I dare go back should the need arise.Should I bring my camera to gather evidence?
