has anyone ever been fired by their surgeon because their office staff decided to tell me that I had no confidence in the doctor I had confidence in the doctor. I did not have confidence in his staff. I caught her in several lies regarding my insurance because I was calling back and forth. And just I have now Blue Cross found me another surgeon in and she got me an urgent office visits and. And they are going to make it like an urgent appointment like I'm going to go in there he's going to have… read more
I was diagnosed in 2006. My surgeon stated that he could do surgery, but guaranteed the procedure would not be beneficial due to the constant changes and deteriorating spine. However, I have had a surgery to "remove" or "clean" the debris caused by constant friction of bones and muscle rubbing. This includes stretched or torn tendons, opening closed holes that support the nerves (stenosis) and loose bone. Instant relief but only temporary. St. John's Hospital in Springfield, MO has the best pain management program I have come across. The surgeon's as well as other medical physicians (depends on recommended ongoing treatment from surgeon's) physical and mental health therapists all work closely together so you have a positive outcome and understanding of your disease. Stretching has always been benefitual in my case.
Wow, I have never experienced that. That is a whole new level of crazy. If the staff is that way you may be better off with another Dr. People can be judged by the company they keep, same is true for businesses. Hope you have or off of all of the money you spent at the other Dr's and are prepared to take them to small claims court if necessary. Don't count on the money being transferred. Also contact your insurance company and get the records of what they paid on your behalf for treatment. The whole thing does not pass the smell test.
Best of luck
Thank you. I do believe will no longer be able to keep them as a participating provider. That's going to lick him hard.
When I was diagnosed in 2015 the surgeon they sent me to said if he did surgery I would end up paralyzed. So I have been afraid to even consider it!!!
