The Forgotten Patient!

Dr. Hines came highly recommended but that recommendation was soon turned into disappointment... my Mom was there to see Dr. Hines for a massive hernia caused by surgeons at Centinela Hospital... when we arrived to Dr. Hines office we were caught off guard by his cold greeting and distant interaction... we greeted him an he wasn't much for our thanking him for seeing us, and said in a unfriendly manner... what are u here for...I tried to make light of the situation because my Mom was very concerned and afraid that her condition would mean she would have to have surgery, something she was terrified of because that's what placed her in this predicament she was in... surgery was something she wasn't looking forward to... I was reassured by others we had spoke with about Dr. Hines that he was the best and his bedside manner was great... Well sadly we received just the opposite of what we were expecting... As Dr. Hines spoke on the seriousness of my mom's condition, my Mom, now even more terrified tried to lighten the room by commenting on something else we had to do for the day that concerned our puppy, it made her laugh, ( something my Mom needed at that time), but the Doctor wasn't too amused and continued on with his directives on what we needed to do in moving forward with this process... Well we completed a CT SCAN which he ordered for my mom to get so he could become more familiar with my mom's hernia and to see if it was causing or creating any obstructions or strangulating her interior organs... Long story short we had the CT SCAN done and to this day we have failed to hear from the Doctor... After continuous calls to the office about the CT SCAN still nothing and the reason for my FRUSTRATION IS THAT ITS ALMOST A YEAR AGO IF NOT LONGER... All I want to say is THANK YOU DOCTOR HINES... WITH ALL OF YOUR DOCTOR OF THE YEAR AWARDS ITS THE SMALL PEOPLE WHO U DON'T TREAT RIGHT THAT GET SWEPT UNDER THE RUG AND FORGOT ABOUT IT... HAVE A GREAT YEAR!!!!
