At times the medical profession needs to really get shaking up.
An African-American lady weighing 350 pounds, age 55, with an acute Crohn's flare up came to see us today in the clinic. Her pain was intense. Her rectal bleeding was profuse - so much so that she bled a constant stream of blood before a bowel movement.
She called her MD 10 x or more to no avail. Finally she called the nurse station and they said her doctor was on leave so he could not see her. No referral. No go to the emergency room. She was just left to keep bleeding and in immense pain.
She decided to come to our clinic in hopes we could stop the bleeding and pain.
Yes Ma'am. But we need you to go the hospital and be seen by your MD.
She broke down in tears and said her physician would not see her. We phoned this physician and found out he was not on leave and that he was still seeing patients.
