Freaking INCREDIBLE!!!! My mother has been treated like a drug seeking junkie and told all she had was a lower lumbar strain since APRIL! Well geniuses it wasn't " lower lumbar strain" it WAS a fractured lower spine. Your lack of follow up and professionalism it is possible all this time that she has had a spinal infection so when she fell again it cause an extremely odd and compounded the fracture. Thanks to constant notes saying it was no more than sprain her work thinks she is playing around and missing days. You should be sued! All this time she has had shattered bones floating around in her spine one wrong move she would have been paralyzed. We took her into a specialist recommended after the 1 visit from her new primary recommended a MRI to get to the bottom of it. The new doc office got Tricare to approve things quickly. She went to her first visit to the spine specialist and they sent her straight to the surgical hospital on complete bed rest NO getting up or moving. She felt bad enough without being made to feel like a drug seeking junkie. If the same complaints come in time after time use that degree for something other than hold on your hat and DO YOUR JOB look into other causes your useless jerks!
If the jerk hadn't have retired I would be filing serious complaints! Sorry folks had to vent!
Yea on tricare getting them to do things when your pcm is not listening is a bitch. All the more reason to sue
since it is Tricare she thinks she just doesn't have a choice
She should have gone to a specialist long before now and insisted for an MRI. She needs to be more assertive in seeking health care. If she isn't happy with what one doctor is telling her, get another opinion. Keep getting opinions until you get to the bottom of the issue.
As for lawsuit, yes.. find a lawyer. The very first doctor should have ordered an MRI when the "muscle strain" didn't get better.
Where do these do-gooder moronic doctors think they are doing? Women feel pain in greater amounts than men and are more sensitive (usually - there's almost never an always here). But, if you complain - you're a whiner. Sheesh - I hate that.
I hope you mom gets better soon and that she's able to move about quickly.
