If you have ever been turned away or ignored or discouraged not to come back by a doctor, hospital, or clinic, there are others like us out there. You are not alone.(We do not accept donations or anything like that).

I am a survivor of unnecessary surgery--Thoracic Outlet surgery being the most devastating by G. James Avery at California Pacific Medical Center. I am in very bad condition and getting worse. I am REFUSED appointments at UCSF--Dr. Barbero--neurosurgeon, the entire Vascualar surgery Dept at UCSF, refused Neurology--etc. In my home town I've been blacklisted and abandonned. Medical fraud is committed against me often--my website is www.tossurgerynightmare.com

Patients must lobby for change in this culture. California CAPS medical malpractice so NO attorneys are interested anymore in stopping this injustice--medical mistakes, unnecessary surgery, medical damage and more.
Patient blacklisting and medical fraud needs to be treated criminally.

I am experiencing years of illness and disease. I have been yelled at, dismissed and constantly told me to see psyche. When I have a bad stomach issue with vomiting, diarrhea, etc for over a week, the ER does no scans, showing my bloodwork to be normal, although my notes say I am chronically anemic therefore, if dehydrated, as in this case, my blood work would look fine. I was instead told I had a UTI and sent away. Going to the ER with wounds, I am given a bandaid and a glass of water. EVERY specialist I have been referred to has done nothing, even if their diagnostics show abnormalities like an adenomatous mass in my neck or brain atrophy in conjunction with a mass in my brain. When, after meeting them, they suggest psyche, I know I'm being dismissed. One can not know if a person needs psyche after 10 minutes. Not following that direction results in a doctor quitting on me or not accepting me as a patient because I won't follow their recommendations.
I get bad infections that rarely get treated properly or documented. God forbid someone report that I am actually sick. After a year of no iron in my blood with upped doses of OTC iron and extreme fatigue and failure to have any wound heal, I was sent finally to a hematologist who ordered what my doctor said--an iron infusion. I had a bad reaction to it and my hematologist quit on me right there, sent me to the ER where I was given morphine and ativan--not anything for an allergic reaction. I was ill for weeks after. The ER report said "possible reaction to iron infusion". POSSIBLE? The things they found, like swollen lymph nodes and difficulty breathing were negated on the report. Right now the UTI diagnosis follows that of a KIDNEY infection, not a UTI, although an upper UTI is a kidney infection. If that was the more specific diagnosis, I would have been given proper treatment.
I have been sent all over the place by referrals, not treated or disrespected and cannot get care at all. I just have to suck it up and hope. Pneumonias, massive UTIs, severe pain, lesions that won't heal, hospital-acquired yeast infections and extreme rashes covering my back get no treatment.
I have been overmedicated (on no less than 9 meds) which are psyche, but are not for psyche but sleep, except the antidepressant I'm trying to come off of on my own with difficulty. Also other meds I do not need, I'm not weaned off of and must do myself. Then, I'm remedicated with something else. How can someone need so much medication if they are not ill?

Help.

Lisa I read your post and I do sympathize with you. By reading your post you do sound hysterical and maybe a little mental, but I can understand completely why you might sound this way. I've been having a similar experience and I cry and am in pain all the time. I have been blacklisted because I tried to expose corruption in the medical system by doctors. I know that you have under a tremendous amount of stress. I myself feel as though I am being tortured to death. I too have frequent UTI that I don't believe are being properly treated. I wish I could offer you more support and tell you where to go to get the help you need but I don't know. I will fervently offer prayers for your well-being.

The UTI comments sound alot like Interstitial Cystitis. Urologist. I've been considering moving back to Calif., after many, many years living in the Ohio Valley. These posts have gone a long way to changing my mind, as I must have good medical care. In my view, our culture has so elevated the medical profession that many doctors actually feel like gods, so far above the rest of humanity. I understand that, because so many people treat their own bodies like trash, and doctors do work hard to get their union cards(so to speak). But compassion and healing are not at the top of the medical value scale; money and luxury are. They need to be taken down a peg, don't you think?

A few of us who are being blacklisted due to previous medical mistakes are starting to try to organize. In England a few years ago a group of 50 did, "Sufferers of Iatrogenic Neglect or SIN" and actually were able to negotiate some changes with their medical system and got some media overage. We need to start networking and trying to gather as many members as possible. My goal is to get much more than 50. The more people, the more power we will have to make a change to our corrupt and criminal medical system. Please contact me at lorije728@aol.com if you are interested in joining us. This idea of organizing is just a few days old now but I am finding many who very enthusiastic about this. Any ideas on how best to spread the word and organize would be greatly appreciated.

My heart goes out to so many of you. "Hope", you are Right on target via the "GOD" complex. And yes, think twice before moving to CA for Medical Care! Please! Also, today, CA physicians still believe they should make LOTS of money--yet does a school teacher ask for lots of money?(not usually)--and is their work any less important?? It is time for a change in this country. Time for our Medical Boards to start acting like TRUE Medical Boards and stop all this money being made--often in the name of "Criminal Activity" and HARM to the patient. Yet the CA Medical Board does SHAM peer reviews and lets surgeons mutilate patients with unnecessary surgeries over and over. I am one of those patient--and have seen, and know many others. This HAS to stop!!
Obama--I sure hope you are reading this! Time to insist doctors stop counting all the money they make and start respecting the old oath to "DO NO HARM" and HELP patients--don't hurt them and dump them to suffer and die. Taxpayers are cleaning up the financial mess they leave--while surgeons and their Malpractice companies and hospitals get richer with EACH procedure. And the patient is left blacklisted by doctors after surgical mutilation. I just had another doctor "blacklist" me yesterday. At my 1st appt., with NO physical or other examination he wanted to put a Spinal Cord Stimulator in me--but that is NOT my main need or problem. When I said "no thanks" he said, "goodbye." Good God!

I believed family and I are blacklisted by the local medical community. I have never filed a lawsuit or complaint until recently, after much mistreatment. What can we do?

Lisa,
Begin recording your doctors visits. Every doctors visit. Also, start keeping your own records after every doctors visit. What was said by your and your doctor during that visit and date and time of said visit. I know you don't feel like doing this, but trust me, it sounds like you're being blacklisted. Don't let your doctor have access to any of your meds with capsules and don't allow him to give you any shots, even if he says its Toradal or something that may help you. Did he want you to apply for SSI?? If so, that's only bc he wants you to have an income just in case you figure out what he's doing and sue him. He won't have to pay out as much if he loses the lawsuit if you have an income. Try getting off most of your meds. Are they pain meds??? If so, he may have caused you Opioid Induced Hyperalgesia (look it up online). Slowly wean yourself off of them. Begin seeing another PCP that he doesn't know about. Try testing your doctor to see what hospitals he's affiliated with. If there's one he's not affiliated with, try to find your PCP there. Don't accept any prescriptions from your new PCP. Just tell them you haven't been feeling good and tell them your symptoms. Don't get any prescriptions filled by them. In the meantime, keep seeing your doctor and act naive. They usually blacklist a patient for 5 years. Good luck.

I feel that I have been blacklisted in the small town that I live in after being terminated from a bad work experience at the local Medical Center. Is it possible that I have also been placed on a patient blacklist as well? My employment resulted in retaliation by my supervisor because I spoke up about things not being right (ethically & legally). Now that I am unemployed and seeking medical treatment I have noticed that healthcare providers that I have been referred to will not call me back. Also, my current doctors seem to be trying to get rid of me by being rude and billing me excessive charges for services. At this point I am not sure what to do but it is evident that I am being treated poorly as a result.

I am totally confused about how it is remotely possible to be "blacklisted" when there are sooo many doctors out actively looking for new patients. Please describe how it would be possible for doctors t ensure you cant be seen new doctors. I sympathize for anyone who is chronically ill or in pain, but with all due respect this sounds CRAZY! Go outside that practice, or to a different hospital! I have known many doctor shopping, rx addicts who have no problem finding new doctors! No offense, but this just does not sound right.

My son, I am sure, was black listed! He had broken his back, but his pain did not get better and two years into it he was pretty much bed ridden, they took all sorts of X-rays, ct scans, mri's, etc.. They all came up negative. Then they decided he needed a neurologist, after all her test, and drugs, and then him developing seizures, she was not sure why he was still in debilitating pain, finally she suggest maybe we abused him as child, and that was causing his all this pain, wtf!!! He was in emergency room after emergency room for chronic back pain and seizures, and they had no idea what was wrong with him. After taking him to UCSF they took him off all the neurologists meds and the seizures stopped and we were told they never should have been given to someone his age. A ER dr. Refused to take a scan of his spine after he collapsed and told us he had mEntal issues and threw a anti depressant at us. We threw it away and told him that was BS! A couple of months later we decided to revisit a back specialist and within minutes he discovered his broken vertebra never fused together, basically the fracture ends were rubbing together for over two years and none of these specialist could figure this out! We came across dr after dr who refused to do their own work and went by what this neurologist said. She basically black balled him, and even when he tried to get a new primary, they refused to run their own test and told him he was faking it, how do you fake a broken back when you have X-rays to prove it? Finally we found a good rheumatologist who diagnosed him with Bamboo Spine or Ankylosing Spondylitis, a chronic, debilitating, progressive, un curable condition who hits young people around 19 years of age, his started at around 16 years old. Even now when he has tried to get SSI these incompetent dr's who are more afraid of being sued for their sub standard treatment, have screwed him out of getting the financial help he needs. Unbelievable! Once these Dr.s screw up they will black ball you and screw with your medical care. We got a lawyer just so he can get his SSI, but after he gets it we are going to get his medical records and anything false that was put in his records we are going to insist that they be removed!

You have no idea because it has not happen to you!

After my sons neurologist gave him drugs that caused him seizures, and we asked her about it, and why my son was still in pain she accused us abusing him as a child, and then his primary told him he wouldn't deal with any longer. So don't tell me a dr. would not black ball you. Then when my son went to get a new primary, he refused to listen to his rheumatologist's diagnosis and told him he was faking it, then blocked him from getting the SSI he was applying for, and this was a Dr. he had only seen once who never ran any test on him. It was obvious he was going by what this other Dr. had written, all because she was afraid we were going to sue her for giving our young son seizure causing meds! And she missed, with all the test she had done, that his friggin back was still broken! My son can't work, he can't lift anything, stand, sit, for any length of time, jobs that only typically a teen without a degree could get. Yet SSI has refused him several based not on the correct diagnosis of his current specialist but by the incompetent neurologist who caused him seizures and couldn't see that his back was still broken! So don't tell me she didn't black ball my son, she most certainly did!

blacklisting is a law and now such reported users " doctor shopping " patients are only visible to doctors and other professionals not to the public...as more and more people use such doctors to obtain medicines to resell and or use a recreational use usually leading to over-medicating or abuse which leads to death .. as for those who truly need them for reasons due to chronic pain can no longer obtain them as laws now apply everywhere,

unfortunately, i have found this experience all too true. when attempting to find a new doctor in gv, i went to a new, small office dr. on the corner of 49 and wolf. the dr. was at the reception desk and when i went in, i showed them my medi-cal/medicare cards. before the receptionist had an opportunity to answer, the dr. told me "this is a family practice...we do not accept your kind". wow. really? i wonder what my "kind" is?

Look into medical malpractice tort reform and the very criminal American Medical Association/ AMA's self-regulation and medical malpractice policies you will find a lot of the reasons why medically-injured people are blacklisted. Risk management is the twisted perspective the corporate medical, legal and insurance worlds use. It means you don't have any rights because they have injured you.
Tort reform has removed patients' rights to remedy and recourse through the courts by giving immunity to doctors AS LONG AS they have bought into medical indemnity insurance (i.e. a protection racket) and comply with instructions for the risk management of 'adverse events' from medical indemnity insurers, which are often doctor-owned insurance companies and exist to provide medical defence and to limit or minimise, or completely cover-up any evidence of malpractice, negligence or battery. This they do with full impunity of governments. they just don't want you to know.
The medical indemnity insurers, such as Kaiser Permanente and the Doctors' Company blacklist injured patients through electronic records and global insurer databases that blacklist people internationally. Your medical records are not confidential. The medical indemnity insurers know everything about you. Even doctors with a conscience have no choice to reject blacklisted patients or their terrifying medical indemnity insurance companies will come after them and punish them with sham peer reviews before the medical boards or mess with their businesses and careers, because after all, they are still insurance companies, filled with thugs and exempt from fraud and collusion laws.
And by blacklisting patients, the very secretive medical indemnity insurers actually want you to sue!! Because no-one has told the public that there is a ban, or partial ban, on recovery from insurance companies, which probably was signaled by the fiasco and false flag operation of 911 and the predatory mortgage fraud practices by banks that crashed the world known as the Global Financial Crisis. Personal injury law firms know about the ban but are not telling as tort reform is a goldmine for them as they fleece injured patients further because they don't know about the ban on recovery and the collusion between lawyers, medical indemnity insurers, medical and health boards.
So, governments are behind this, and you will find a lot of legislators are lawyers, who subscribe to a similar kind of risk management agreement through their law societies' professional indemnity insurance ( as do police, etc.) Governments can then say they spend less on healthcare and don't pay Workers' Compensation by the same methods-giving public taxpayers money to the medical-industrial corporate complex instead (such as to help doctors and dentists pay their medical indemnity subscriptions. Yes, public money subsidizes doctors' medical malpractice indemnity insurance subscriptions which are used against medically-injured members of the public to pay bad an criminal doctors' defence costs. We subsidize them to win against us.)
So, governments have been complicit with the medical-industrial corporate complex to put in place medical malpractice tort reforms legislation. This is the massive predatory fraud that medical corporations and government, together with the law and order fraternity, that is behind growing intentional medical battery, very bad quality treatment called negligence, iatrogenic neglect, blacklisting, etc. See information from the Center for Justice and Democracy and the American Association of Justice (although the AAJ doesn't tell the full truth!) It's all about corporate profits and now medical malpractice is very profitable for all the players, especially in the creation of medical defence fraud and the pretence associated with it.
Tort reform is an invitation to corruption and racketeering, predating on sick and injured people.
