i used to work in the kitchen at a resturaunt and have alot of scars on my hands... not in the bends of my arms!! this surgeon is a real jerk with no bed side manners. but i asssume he saw the burn scars and drew his own conclusions
I think you will be ok most doctors are to bizzy to even see pacents let alone take time to do something like that.....I would get a new doctor also I have had my shair of bad ones
good luck and God bless......Gnarly
Hi, this is off topic but what does red flagged mean? I used to go to docs everywhere and abuse all of them several years ago, and I don't guess that happened to me??
Definitely get a different doc! Bedside manner Is something that not all of them have unfortunately. You deserve to have a doctor who you trust and is respectful and kind. And good luck with your surgery!
Red flagged means there's suspicion on the patient re: any unusual or conflicting issues and/or behavior. Usually means the patient is now seen as a "drug seeker" or has been "doctor shopping" and will seek any Dr.'s care as a means to get more drugs. Once you've been red flagged, the information is shared with other Dr.'s on your profile/chart so they know to be cautious with you the next time you ask for something.
thanks for all your input i relly appreciate it. luckily everything went ok.my hand is much better and my regular dr is a wonderfu understandig man.but i guarantee i wont be seeing that ill mannered surgeon again!!! haha thanks again for all your help! god bless!!!!
