I have finally met this EVIL
doctor in person, yesterday at the ER. I brought my mother, unfortunately, because my dad is much better a dealing with this problem. I went in at 6:30am, when my regular doctor's office was closed. Well, the doctor started off by saying that is was now
open and suggested that I go there for treatment. I asked him if he expected me suffer for several more hours, rather than receive treatment that I had already waited there in the ER to get for three hours. Then he got into a discussion with my mother over how to manage my problem "globally" instead of just going from shot to shot. Well, I've been trying to handle my migraines "globally" for THIRTY FREAKING YEARS!!!
Then he said that if I continued to get narcotic shots, I might as well go stand in line every day at the local Methadone clinic. This was so out of line, my head almost exploded. To equate a migraine sufferer with a heroin addict is beyond my comprehension, not to mention highly unethical in my opinion. I finally asked DR. DEATH
if he had ever had a migraine attack personally. He just started giving me lip service about
seeing people in pain everyday. YADA-YADA-YADA...
I just totally shut down and didn't say another word. Finally, after my mother discussed things with the doctor for several minutes, he finally agreed to give me a shot. It would have been so much more appropriate if he had waited until after the shot had time to lower my pain level, so I would have had a fair chance in the discussion. ARRRRGH!!!
I just got the hospital survey about
my ER experience in the mail, and boy, it that doctor going to catch it!!
