Re: My skeptical doctor-GET YOUR MEDICAL RECORDS
I strongly recommend that you get a copy of your medical records, which you are legally entitled to have . You might be shocked by what comments your "friendly" doctor is writing in your permanent medical record which will be electronically available to all kinds of people.
I innocently brought my Gallstones
into a doctor at my HMO. When a year later I was told my sore throat and stomach upset did not exist, I got a hold of my medical records. It turns out the doctor, who was offended by my gallstones, wrote in my medical record that I imagined I had gotten out my gallstones, that my psychiatric history had been discussed, and a psychiatric evaluation was recommended. Nothing of the sort took place, and I had no idea there was a problem. The story is actually quite a bit more complicated and has resulted in my having an eye-opening and hair raising look at the seamy underbelly of my HMO. Be advised. Imagine you are entering a bizarre cult when you go to your Orthodox medical facility. If you disturb their rigid beliefs,they can get back at you quite nicely behind your back.
And the medical record, once entered, cannot be removed.
