Another Blue Cross Denial

I had surgery on October 3, 2016 it was failed as the surgeon told me in recovery. I have lived with increasing pain, numbness lack of sleep and not being able to do anything at all as it increases pain. I have done my best to avoid the pit falls of the pain meds as yes they do cause constapation for over 1 year. I digress, I need the fusion as the pain is increasing daily I am going out of my mind with pain. I have had 3 different physical therapy companies but this so called DR says he knows all and no surgery. Does he think I really want a multilevel fusion or has he looked at me and talked to me. All answers are no but he and the insurance companies no all but say nothing. What a waste of humanity. Where is the oath to do no harm Dr Gopinath? I guess it is for sale as well.

Good example of an Employee of Corporate America

He is denying all types of surgeries and procedures simply because he works for Blue Cross, it is quite obvious that he does not know the difference between a disc peek spacer and the actual instrumentation(plate and screws) required to keep the spacers in place. These are both separate and payable procedures yet him and Dr. Kooman continue to be employed by Blue Cross to deny surgeries.
