I have been having a terrible time with a reffered Pain Management doctor as part of a workers comp case as a precautionary measure for incidents of pain after surgery 01/03/2012. This doctor started my care in March 2013 since that time he done s1 dysfunction injection that failed. When I had issues with pain he provided no contact for him since he was working for two medical intities and didnt want one knowing he was doing it. The office he went to work for even failed to provide communications with him (no contact numbers at all) I was not allowed to call his pre estabished office and the new medial care provider had not set up or established any avenue of communications with him either.
I was bed ridden for a whole weekend then when I called the office preestablished as per the case manager of wc I was told I couldnt call there I had to call the other office and so on. 12 hours later the doctor called me gave orderes for me to stop one med, prescribed other meds including steroids and advised me to stop mobic. I am so glad I recoreded this phone call.
When I returned to an appointment he asked why I had stopped the one med. I advised because you told me to, then went off on me for calling his primmary office number and advised me to call him there were I was seeing him, I advised they had no way to do that through that office he retailiated by asking when did you last have Pysical therapy I responded 2011 I advised it crippled me and had to be ceased by the staff, he ordered 12 visitis of therapy.
As of Friday 05/10/2013 I had been in pain and advised him something was wrong on Wednesday 8th and when I went to work on Friday the tenth my back popped I went down in severe pain and when I was taken to local er by ambulance I had a heart attack due to the pain.The cardiologists said it was due to the pain the er doc said it was due to the pain and I still have not heard from him yet.
Although this is not all of the dynamics I have recorded phone calls of neglect and emails requesting assistance.
