I have an appointment with a new surgeon on Tuesday that the radiologist that reviewed my mammogram recommended. (She also explained that a msitake was made by the original surgeon and that I needed to find a new surgeon). Fingers crossed the new surgeon is better!
My new medical oncologist is wonderful. He knows the whole story & was very good at listening. He came from another hospital out of State & so far he has been great!
Yeah, that's what I kind of figured. Is there nothing to make DRs accountable for mistakes?? I am looking into other insurance because I have had problems with other doctors in the HMO I am in.
I had a problem with my medical oncologist. They ordered a bone density test but only did the left hip due to a hip replacement. I have NEVER had a hip replacement. After trying to the to talk to the Dr for 2 weeks her nurse sent me a message & said they didn't know how to make me happy so she contacted patient advocate & had them call me. It was a disaster!! I ended up going to my pcp & she did the test in her office. When I went to see my medical oncologist after my surgery she refused to see me & sent in a PA. My breast was very painful, red & swollen. I asked her 4 times to check it & was told it wasn't her job, I would have to see the surgeon. I saw the surgeon 3 mos later & was told I had the worst case of lymphedema she had ever seen. I have been in PT since June & I'm paying for it. I fired the Dr & tried to complain but was told it didn't cause me a limb or my life so there was nothing they could do.
I called my insurance to see who is supposed to pay for more surgery when their doctor made a mistake. The response I got was " Did I want to file a complaint against the doctor? (At the moment I just don't think I should have to pay for their mistake but if I have to file a complaint , I guess I will. I don't know what good that will do. I am angry that the surgeon, who ordered the 6 month mammo, never contacted me to let me know the mammogram was abnormal OR that I needed a biopsy OR that the biopsy showed residual DCIS with possible IDC. I was notified by my insurance company that the doctor had ordered a biopsy and not the surgeon. Is that normal?
