Default 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????

Also, I wanted to say that I'm really glad it's not emphysema; but there are still spots on my lungs and coughing up blood also, so there is something still not right with that! This doctor I went to and just told you about doesn't seem to care now. There is something really wrong with her!

That really is a TERRIBLE experience! I fortunately have had the same doctor since i was a child so have a pretty good relationship. I think you need to find yourself another doctor and quickly (as you have wasted 3 weeks waiting for her to ring you with results) and i would complain about her. Im not sure what sort of procedure you have to do in the USA but im sure soemone will know. The way she treated you was wrong she shouldn't be allowed to deal with patients if she jumps to conclusions, upsets them and then when she is proved wrong denies saying it in the first place! Its not like you would make it up as you yourself have said that it makes NO sense for you to have emphysema.

Im sorry for your horrible experience and i hope you find a nice doctor who is more sympathetic to your problem

Oh Shelly, that's terrible! You definitely do need to report that, particularly in view of the fact that she already has a disciplinary action against her. She should not be permitted to practice medicine that incompitently. My God. And yes, get to another doctor as soon as you can, because you will have to start from square one.

I had a rheumatologist that was equally bad. He said he wouldn't prescribe any of the Rheumatoid medicines to me because of a pre-existing condition. I asked him what I should do about the pain. His response? "Learn to live with it." You don't just learn to live with RA. It needs treated. Needless to say, I am going to another doctor.

That is the craziest thing I've ever heard! Like you would actually LIE to her about her saying you had emphysema?! I am so sorry you're going through all of this. To be sick and then have to deal with such a horrible doctor. I would definitely let someone know about the kind of experience you had with her. She sounds terrible. I'm so glad it's not emphysema though, that must be a relief. I would get in to see another doctor ASAP. Keep us updated and feel better soon!

Any pics of the boys?
