Fired!

After 38 years of being a patient I began having severe back pain. I asked for to be sent to a back surgeon, was told I would be sent to a pain clinic instead. After 2 plus years and no relief I called and was passed on from Dr. Rada to another Dr. In the practice siting insurance reasons! After 3 occasions of this and my blood pressure meds being changed constantly I finally had it! When I called with my concerns I was again told I had to see a Pa, Korin Kayler who ordered another MRI to see if my back had worsened, and yet again another referral to a pain Dr. I did my own research and found my own Dr. With a great success rating who ordered his own MRI. Turned out my bulging dscs had turned into herniated discs. Shortly after I yet again asked for a referral to a back surgeon and was called by the Pa and left a nasty message wanting to know why I had gone behind her back to another provider. I answered her message with the answer I got, insurance is not accepted by her anymore. I once againg tossed around as I had been! I have been miss diagnosed and over medicated so often I felt like crap. When I called about a medication question I was met with a nasty message which stated we won't give you narcotics! My question was regarding my blood pressure. I was so insulted I called and asked why they would even say that to me, I did not want narcotics and that was not the reason for my call, the nurse simply said well that is what he said! 2 weeks later I got a letter saying find another Dr. I used to trust Dr. Rada with my health and the health of my 5 daughters and now considering forcing him to answer to a court for his poor treatment of me! Would a phone call asking about the the communication issues at his office be too much to ask after 36 years?

WONDERFUL DOCTOR WHO REALLY CARES

I now live in Ohio, but return to Az every other year or more. After being away I am still his patient when I'm in Az. I have been seeing Dr. Rada sincethe early 70's and he hasn't changed a bit, still the most caring doctor I willever have. We are so lucky to have him.He's there before sun-up and after dark, as long as a patient needs him, he is there for you. Just wish I could clone him back here. Phoenix you are so lucky.I've NEVER been rushed out, he takes all the time you need to answer questions andmakes you feel at ease. Goes that extra1000 miles for you, a true "old fashioneddoctor" from yester year.
