Got a certified letter today from my endo saying she was dropping me as a patient because there is nothing else they can do for me. I was there last weds for my 3 month follow up amd was seen by her pa. I told her and the nurse that i have been getting sever headaches i turn all white and start shaking and get real nasty and i don't even know that i'm doing this. While I was there i had one of those attacks and according to the letter i swore they said that i told them that thier cardilogy department "sucked" which it acutally does because they said that i have 3 blockages on one test and the other test showed no blockages. I went to a different cardio dr from a differant hospital he read the test and said that both test showed the blockages and the one that feeds the head is 80% blocked and that is what is causing the attacks not getting enough oxygen to the brain.I go in sept 2 to get them taken care of. I called them about this letter today and explained myself to them they said that they have the report from my new cardio dr and it stated that i will have these attacks until i get the blockage cleared up. I also found out that the endo's husband is in charge of the cardiology department and he said that if there is a blockage it can not affect the brain. I trust my new cardio dr because he is ranked in the top 50 in the state and her husband is not ranked. Now i have to find an endo who takes my insurance. I have 20 days from the 10th which is only 14 days because it took 6 days for the letter to get to me wish me luck…

I'm shocked that the endo dropped you. What kind of world do we live in today that a doctor would drop you as a patiant because you had an episode in their office and might have mouthed off about their husband? Talk about touchy and having to be so politically correct at every moment. I hope you soon find someone more sypathetic to your conditions.

Yeah just think she went to med school for years you think they would have caught that something wasn't right. I called the insurance co to report what happen they read her notes and in it she has in there that i wanted to hurt myself they are questioning her about that they told me that she should have never let me leave her office under those conditions. now they want all of the records regarding my care so we can have a phone conveersace to make sure everrything done.
