I've been fired by doctors for being "too sick, but noncompliant" (well, who wants to comply with treatment for a disease they knew they did not have???), fired plenty more doctors who had it comming, been told there was nothing that could be done for me (due to "treatment failure" - yeah, because their diagnosis was wrong!!!), been told I had Mono and then the doctor ran out to the car when we were about
to leave and told us it wasn't Mono and that he had no clue what was wrong with me, been told everything was all in my head, been lied to as the doctor ran test after test, then told me what he had decided a year and a half prior that I had (wrong again, oh not so brilliant doc!), been told my unexplained weight loss and stomach pain was from "IBS" and "Somatoform" even though neither of these conditions cause weight loss (I did complain about
this one, but the patient advocacy office took the side of the doctors and at the time I did not know about
Lyme Disease or that I really did have Lyme instead of what the doctors told me was wrong), been taken seriously when Hubby was with but then told I was "depressed" when I went to the appointment alone, had test results stolen from me by MD's, been told to take medication without a diagnosis that warranted the medication, etc. etc. etc. Oh and hospital MD's are the worst, I won't even go into what went on in the hospital (more than once)...and the incompetant radiologists who placed a mis-sized feeding tube that caused months of pain and suffering earlier this year/late last year...etc. etc. etc....basically, 29 years of cr&% from doctors (including MD's, psychologists/psychiatristis, dentists & naturopathic doctors)...
Ok, stepping off my soapbox...
