  1. Yes The first time I seen my current Neurologist. We wrote a letter asking for an apology because he was so rude the first time I seen him and recently the town’s Gp practice of which we were members has went right down hill so much we moved to a neighbouring one.

  2. Absolutely. I had a horrible PCP. I had her for years because of my insurance. I was seeing a specialist who needed to speak with her so she called and put it on speaker phone during my appointment. The PCP was so rude and nasty talking about me that the specialist rushed off the phone and told me she was immediately changing my PCP. And she did and I’ve been so happy with my PCP since then.

  3. Forty years ago I had to take my toddler to the emergency room because she had cut her lower lip very badly and needed stitches. I specifically and emphatically asked the ER doctor NOT to use dissolving stitches, because I was afraid her saliva would dissolve the stitches before the cut had healed. He ignored me and used dissolving stitches anyway. The stitches dissolved THAT VERY SAME DAY, and I had to take her back to the ER again. The same idiot MD was still there and I had no choice but to let him stitch her up again, even though I felt like throttling him. He not only didn’t say he was sorry, he flatly refused to admit he’d made a mistake — he said she must have bitten through the stitches (a physical impossibility, since her lip was so swollen she couldn’t even close her mouth, let alone bite through anything). The whole experience was extremely traumatic for both my daughter and me, and if I’d had any brains, I would have sued that jackass. Since there were multiple witnesses to the fact that I’d asked him not to use dissolving stitches and he had failed to do so, I had an excellent case, and I probably could have gotten a very good settlement (these things are always settled out of court, to prevent the bother and embarrassment of a trial). I have always regretted my failure to sue that bastard.
