Fight Back---Complain!!!


When we visit the doctor, we expect to be treated well and to be given professional attention. When this does not happen, most of us feel alienated. Since we need the help of doctors to maintain our condition, it is important for each of us to take responsibility when something goes wrong.

The best way to do this is to file a complaint with the medical board in the state the doctor practices. Here is a website that can give further information about this, what to expect and how to do it: http://www.iatrogenic.org/complaint.html

The next time I am asked to prove I need my meds, the next time I am abused for my condition, I will take action and file a complaint. If for no other reason that it may help to establish a pattern of abuse, so that the next person who sees the same fool might have a better chance of avoiding it.

Just thought you might like to know a way to get proactive...

I'm wondering what purpose would you have to prove you need your meds? That seems like an odd thing to say. Maybe I'm wrong. Wouldn't be the first time.

I'm all for having a way to complain about my Dr. I think its necessary for everyone to have access to that sort of information.
