Yea and I also filed a harassement complaint and civil case through my insurance company against him because he reffered to me as a "girl" in the "letter" that he sent to my house and just told me plain flat out that he "REFUSED" to work with me because of excessive missed/canceled/rescheduled appointments.I filed complaints with my insurance company and they are now working on erasing the whole incident off my record and sending my files.To a doctor of my choice for privacy matters.Never had a SHRINK refuse to work with me just because I missed appointments.WTH kind of crap is this.O and the bad part.Is that 2 of them were family emergency's and 1 of them.I missed and rescheduled due to inclement weather.Now does that sound fair??The medications that he prescribed to me didn't even go through for 2 weeks after my Initial appointment.So basically the day I had to go back and see him was the day that.I just had received my medication.There for.I did not even start treatment.So I guess that I kind of felt that it was unessecesary to meet with him and just told him.That I would reschedule.I guess he didn't like that.Any questions,replys,comments or feedback would greatly be appreciated.
SL is right. Stay on your ins. company to fight this. Some drs r really understanding, and some r a**holes and dnt understand that we r peoplethat can have stuff come up just like them. I could see if u constantly no call no showed, but atleast u had common courtesy to call.and cancel or reschedule most of the time. I am sure u will find a better dr. but make sure u report this doc. GOOD LUCK, Anna
Hi there arc and let me say welcome back! It's been way too long since we heard from you. Definitely keep on the Insurance company. No doctors like to have to deal with them. And as long as your rescheduled appts couldn't be avoided, you may come out on the winning end of this! I wish you the best
Short story. My husband got a settlement of $30,000. We were so desperate for money my husband agreed to it. Even though major reconstructive surgery was needed and had to go to Philly to have it done. We're in Chicago. When we finally get the check, it's for $10,000!! One third to the lawyer, one third to my hubby, and one third to BCBS insurance in case of any future bills that may come in! You believe that shit?? What I think they did was hold back money on past bills owed from ME. Just one more pain for me to deal with. The only ace in the hole right now is the lawyer forgot to have Jim sign off on the liability papers. Absolving the other car insurance company from any responsibility. Why $10,000? Why not $5,675.95?? So now I want proof from BCBS on exactly where and why this money was held back and how they came up with this figure.
Sorry to ramble arc. I hate Ins co's. they are second only to politicans and lawyers.
Fight the good fight my friend!
Hi arc, it has been so long. I am very sorry to hear of your problems. I am afraid that even though I can validate your feelings, that fact of the matter is doctors (and most pharmacists) do pretty much anything they want and make up rules as they go. My p.m. doc cut down my methadone from a thirty day supply to a twenty eight day supply yesterday. The whole reason I would get a thirty day supply, when I go every twenty eight days, was in case I couldn't make my appointment. I live in Florida and when they even think there might be a hurricance coming they close everything down! I always had to bring the remainder of my pills every four weeks anyhow. I would get the evil eye if I was short even four 10mg.pills! What my point is that you can't really change a doctors mind even if you are in the right. It is very unfortunate,especially when sometimes just a few people ruin it for the rest of us! Take care, you can pm me anytime.
I don't come on DC hardly ever anymore because I have got severe carpal tunnel and neuropathy in my hands... mostly my left hand (of course I am left handed!) Things will work out. Keep me posted. Fall Queen
