Humiliated By A Doctor

Aug 30, 2016 11:13 AM

Last week a had an appointment with a new doctor. He was very cold. Didn't want my husband in the room, then says someone called the office about me but wouldn't say who. Then come the accusations about my home life and the way I take my meds. I'd been going to this clinic for over 3 years and never met this doctor before. I told him that I had to fire my attendant recently and it didn't end well. I felt like I was being interrogated based on a phone call. So how could he even bring that up. Can anyone call your doctor and slander you?

It's a shame but anyone who knows you can call a doctor's office and say things about you and then, as you said, you were interrogated like a criminal. It's a really shitty thing for anyone to do and if you fired your attendant and it didn't end well I guess that could be where the phone call came from. The doctor shouldn't have treated you that way and I'm sure you must have been shocked. I wish you the best and sending positive vibes your way.💕🙏🏻🌻😊

I would think that the other doctor was breaching the patience/ doctor confidential information, if it was your other doctor who called your one. Giving that he wasn't saying who he is protecting that person the person who called. I hate rude and disrespectful doctors, they won't get no where with me. Last doctor who was like to me, I personally asked for my records and had them in my hand so they didn't know what doctor I was going to, the next doctor I had was no where near the old office and the new doctor was nicer than the last and was their until I had to move out of state. Praying that things work out for you!
