Thought he was going to help me Initially he gave me the pain medication I needed. During thAt month my pain was lessened and my life.began chNging dramatically for the better. I began to be as to do things around th house bit by bit and I was able to play my guitar and violin standing and for an hour at a time (enough to actually start performing again as the singer songwriter little green men Pam Webberley. I actually was a lie to plan and flow through taking my great niece to seAside Oregon for a dml getaway. I had hope and joy again in my life. Then this was l taken away by 1urine test that did not test positive for opioids. I was initiating baffled because I knew I had been taking the med as prescribed When dr Scott requested a phone visit he told me because of the 1 test result that I could not have been taking the medication. I was surprised and upset because he then went on to say he believed that I was either giving away or selling the medication. I was very upset and told him I have taken the medication exactly as prescribed and I would never sell or give away my medication I needed it. Then I went on to sayI remind remembered that I had tested negative on several occasions prior pain clinics with the same situation. The only thing I could think that would be causing this is that I have a doctor his name is Dr. Alan Javel that told me I was a fast metabolizer of medications. That this is happened several times before and to please let me take another test urine test. He did not seem to be listening or taking any of this into account. I the way you talk to me was like I was a A liar and that I was either selling medications are giving them away. I was appalled shocked and very angry. I would never and have never given away narcotic pain medications in my entire life nor will I ever sell them. I would never have ever thought to do that. I have plenty of income and I need the medication. He did make any sense to me that he would not let me take another test. I even told him repeatedly about what Dr. Jabal have told me over the years but I required higher doses of every medication and that I was a fast metabolizer there was proof and I have records and how could it hurt for me to go in and get another urine test. No matter how long or what I said to him he was dead set against me ever doing another test. He had his mind made up about me in one visit and one test that tested false i'm not that's stupid I study nursing I practice paramedics and for years 23 years to be exact and my reputation is valuable to me. I believe Dr. Scott and then the following doctor that is to see me today I believe he's by don't remember his name are in a sense that you're doing malpractice. Anybody who goes to nursing school med school paramedic school the very first third first thing They teach you is to do no harm. this dr had formed A conclusion and opinion of me immediately just one visit and one test. I change doctors to try and get a second chance and today the doctor I went to told me directly that he looked at Dr. Scott's notes and he would never prescribe me any narcotics. I ask him to please test my urine again today because there could be false Negatives I knew that for a fact I am not stupid. For some reason he and Dr. Scott have some there's got to be something else that they're not telling me. The doctor today was horrible his bedside manner was the worst I've ever experienced in my entire life. He would not listen to to me. I had to beg for iContact. And then I only got it for a brief moment. He kept interrupting me and just going to the computer and talking over me. I requested another urine test repeatedly. He denied it said he wouldn't do it you have no reason to do it. He believed Dr. Scott and was going by that evaluation. The doctor I had today didn't even lay one hand on me he didn't evaluate me he only went by notes that were on the computer and what I said I should say he didn't go by what I said because he didn't believe a thing I said. It was obvious I intend to pursue this issue I need my pain medication and now without it my wife will be sitting on the couch making it to the grocery store once in a while making it to an appointment to get other meds that I need. I cannot believe group health else Dr. such as this to me they are practicing malpractice if I don't get satisfaction at the next appointment with the next doctor in group health I will be pursuing malpractice I have this medication for years it's a proven fact I need it I have records they I have referrals from other doctors the only reason I went back to group health is to try to get everything in one place and I have told the truth I am I am suggested I take a lie detector test. I know for a fact that you can get false negatives and false positives on any test I'm not stupid I'm very angry obviously I don't know exactly what to do but I'm not giving up I need this medication my life was better with that I wanted to start my music career again and do things I wasn't isolating my depression was better. I am very concerned and worried because I know what my life is going to be like without that medication. I will be couch bound watching TV getting getting sleep at night Harley babe being able to get out of bed I'm so stiff not being able to play my instruments for very long at all because of my arthritis not being able to take my dog for walks that she needs because I have knee injury back injuries the injuries that I've gotten real chill that's constant i've got neuralgia that's like shingles it's constant pain in my butt ox and down my legs I've got arthritis since my early 30s I'm 57 now it's rheumatoid my hands cannot play my instrument well without this medication. I'm flabbergasted and I'm not sure what steps to take next but I want to let repel from these doctors no I am not going to stop here if I have to hire an attorney I will go to the governor I will go to the president I will go anywhere and everywhere I need to get this medication to get it safely as I should I'm paying a very high percentage of money for this group health insurance I have rights and I believe they have been violated and over and over. Also that tactic was used by giving me a nurse assistant and a social worker to talk to until 5 o'clock so the doctor got to leave he did not even follow through with the rest of my medications as he told me he was going to. I'm home now laying on the couch as I was in tears there I am now starting to become angry and know that I need to do something about this I will not stop until I get what I need these two doctors were horrible to about to me I think they need to need to be reviewed with me there so I can tell my side of the story and with all the records that I have to prove that I have been on this medication for years and many other medications that I'm not on now because I took myself off this medication was proven to not make my depression worse and it helps my pain and I need it. I believe my rights have been violated. The social worker was horrible and treated me like I was three years old. I was told I need to get out of the building immediately. And then someone else told me I could go to the urgent care. Which I did. They did agree to test my urine there. But I had to send it to St. Peter's they didn't have a way to test it there it is sad. Period if that is the truth then they are really setting themselves up for liability. I believe they're lying to me I know that there's very simple dipstick test that you take I've taken them before at many pain clinics and they work immediately. I believe that a lot of bad stuff is going on at this group health I don't know why it's happening to me but I'm going to investigate I will go to the president if I have to to get to the bottom of it I'm a US citizen I have paid my 600 over $600 a month for this insurance I have rights and they been denied
