A terrible doctor!
You all remember when I told you I went to a doctor and she told me that I had emphysema? Well, after waiting for 3 weeks for her to call me about results from the tests I took (she was suppose to call me!), I finally called her office. Now she says everything is fine and that "she didn't tell me that"! What????!!!!!! She most certainly did tell me that! She made a point of looking at my x-rays of my lungs right in front of me and said "I'm really concerned about these spots on your lungs! I think it is emphysema!" My reply to her was, "How can I have emphysema? I have never, ever smoked in my entire life??!!" Her answer back to me was, "It could be caused by a hereditary gene or environmental factors." Now.....she TOTALLY denies saying that to me and said that SHE told me it was sinusitis! I told her right back that No, she did not say that to me....she told me that I had emphysema. She was looking right at the x-rays and said that I had emphysema. She immediantly started yelling and screaming at me over the phone that I was the most difficult patient she ever had (I had met her only once!!), and that she didn't say anything to me about emphysema! She then said to me that I only heard what I wanted to hear!!! She is lying, obviously for some reason! She still continued screaming and yelling at me over the phone, so I just hung up on her! Obviously there are STILL spots on my lungs, so I suppose I will have to find another doctor to explain why there are spots on my lungs. She also was yelling at me over the phone because I asked her to explain why there are spots on my lungs! She said there was no such thing and she didn't say that. But I have the x-rays that she gave back to me....I think she forgot about that. Bottom line is I think there is something weirdly wrong with this doctor. I also found out she had a disciplinary procedure brought against her in court last year, and she was on a probatioary period and had to pay a fine. etc. I would like to turn her in because she DID tell me I had emphysema...now she is lying about it, plus was very nasty to me over the phone! Anyone else ever go through this with a doctor????
