that is also why I was given home treatments for the migraines from my neck injury and had the ER told me the result of a bursting boil in my head on nerves and near the pituitary gland then I would have had emergency care one time instead of them taking mine and my insurance for a ride. I am in the process with my insurance getting legal action done. After I found out about their mistreatment every attorney I called said I had a good lawsuit with good evidence but they only take malpractice death suits, with the big money. So I took the evidence to the insurance.

also, when u are by yourself with a baby, husband thousands of miles away, with a disabled mom myself, my parents wouldn't drive me to Knoxville, nor could I make it to knoxville myself nearly blind in pain. I've had surgery on both and now the headaches are manageable at home. Haven't been to ER in 4 months. Saving money now instead of having nearly $500 in bills after since we have 100 deductible and pay 20%. I guess at that price immediate help is my choice to make, especially for the safety of my son. As migraines are crippling and I don't have time to be crippled up in the bed, maybe you do and can wait for a doctor appointment and I'm sure they'd not appreciate you walking in their office projectile vomiting. They'd be wondering why u didn't go to the ER where they are set up for that.

WHY folks WHY do you fall for it every time????

Just DAMN.
it's called accidentally typing in the name box on the app, I've already corrected it once, it changed back. Still find hat this is not even related to the topic and a desperate attempt at character assassination. I find that you are a very depressed person, must be unhappy to talk so trashy, very unattractive, did your mommy teach you to behave in such a trashy way? Now this is a thread on the hospital, if you have nothing of value to add then I see no other reason you would take the time to write bs other than boredom. Why do you need to post about me? What thrill do you get? Am I that important to your life that you just have to say something, or were you never taught to be polite, considerate, or the golden rule of treat others how you'd like to be treated. Likely you are treated like the trash you are in real life, so you get on here acting big and bad. I don't need to be like you on here as irl I have people that respect me, success and an awesome family. Mate if you had any of that topic would see a more positive you. Good luck I hope you find happiness! I truly do!

Just sounds like my first posts hit a nerve, likely the person that tried to put words in my mouth and couldn't read I said I would never go back to that hospital. Maybe you are a nurse there, hahaha that explains a lot then.

when the head ache is a migraine at 2 am and you're vomiting everywhere that's what you have to do.
they stated been two or three times for head ache , surely they could see a general doctor during business hours between those headaches wouldn't you think ? If she has migraines or if you have migraines you should have a Dr. Right ? If your up at 2am piling with a migraine your Dr is who you should be mad at not the walk in clinic emergency room .

and I assume I hadn't. At that same time I was being treated by va for them but VA never does anything but X-rays if they can get away with it and it wouldn't have been seen on an X-ray. And the ER was only place that had MRI of the boil in my head and as I said my prime care was saint Mary's . Therefore when the ER said it was my prime cares fault they pretty much blamed their own doctors.

Dr. Bishoffburger is about as incompetent and despisable as they come. He is verbally abusive to women. Thinks he is above them. He talks down to female patients as well as female nurses he works with (except for a few of his "favorite" nurses, OMG). If he is on duty when you go to ER, if you are medically capable, immediately turn around and go to Knoxville or Oak Ridge.

Nope, if you come by ambulance for a paper cut on your finger, you'll still be triaged and wait. That's what's wrong with Tenncare and this state. People using the ambulance services and er as free rides and primary care..I.e. lonelyone with "migraines".

1. Tennova is FOR PROFIT, you are lucky they even treated you/your family if you had no insurance. They have and will continue to turn people away that are not having a CRITICAL emergency for abilty to pay. Im very surpirsed they didn't tell you to take a hike.

2. Miagraines can be serious, not ER serious, but need to be checked out by a DR, NOT ER DR, I have them myself, my primary doc is treating me for them and has for years, and BTW pain clinic, really? Narcotics will cause rebound migraines, any dr with common sense will not prescribe narcotics for that. There are a ton of preventive medications for migraines (topamax is one), medications such as zofran for nausea, and imitrex is one for the pain. If you have TRUE migraines narcotics will not help, they neve touched mine!

3. Get a life, get a JOB and get some insurance!

I never used ambulance for my headaches. And they weren't just headaches they were from my spinal cord being pinched in half and a boil next to nerves in my head. Of they did their job right I would have been treated for those, instead they wanted money from me when it got so bad I didn't eat for days puking so much it got to stomach bile. Trying all the treatments at home by my prime care, but pain medicine and migraine medicine are not going to help when your spinal cord is being pinched in half.

exactly, I never got narcotics for my headaches at the ER. What helped was the nausea medicine. It helped the vomiting and I think where it relaxes you helped the tension in my neck

Is Dr. Bishoffberger still working in the ER at Lafollette Hospital. He is not a very nice person. I hope for the hospital's customer service, he is no longer there. I have not had a reason to go to ER since I was there about a month ago and had to see this doctor for the first time. I hope that is my last time of ever seeing him again. Is he rude and hateful with all his patients or just women?? You can tell he has a problem. If I or my family do have a health emergency and he is there, I will do like "yeah" said and go to another hospital if I am medically capable. You need to get rid of him. I feel like he is not mentally stable enough to work in an ER dept.

by the way were u saying I do not have insurance? We have bcbs of Texas where my husbands company office is and I also have VA care. The va had me on imitrex shots this actually made me feel like I was dying at first then I'd pass out from the phenergen pill and wake up relief (likely from the phenergen not the imitrex. The doctors told me I was allergic to imitrex. Also I was put on metformin for diabetes and PCOS which causes increased fertility, but when I was losing too much weight on the topomax and the weighed the danger if I were to get pregnant and the damage topomax would do to a fetus if not caught in time I stopped that treatment. All of these medicine were dangerous and turns out it wasn't migraines really at all it was from a herniation in the neck and a boil in my sphenoid gland, which st Mary's never told me although I found it later in my medical records when I was diagnosed by my pain clinic. So, literally this hospital continued to treat me as if it were migraines when really it was way more serious and had they done their job at all those emergency visits I would have been taken in for emergency surgery to prevent the possibility of paralysis. Instead I slowly began to lose the ability to walk, left with a bacteria infection that could have easily gotten to my brain through the sphenoid to the pituitary gland. I've had to have that checked to after the infection was found to be in my head for over 5 years without that hospitals help. Luckily my pituitary was normal. But these two conditions could have easily killed me.

My injury to my neck was treated by va and they don't like to do MRI. So they didn't see the significant damage, by st Mary's did and never said anything. My prime care I changed because of the poor care and they were st Mary's and all they did for my sinuses it pump me full of antibiotics. Finally I changed to my new doc at community health and they sent me to an ent where the boil was found. Then I though " this is crazy something should have been found before as it was 3/4 full in my gland". So I ordered my records for all those headaches and low and behold MRI and cat scans showed they knew like 5 years prior. Then when my hubby was too lazy to take me to oak ridge or Knoxville we went to st Mary's with me vomiting all day. They played games and Kauffman came in and I told her about this and she was all "it's your prime cares fault". I scoffed and said, "ain't that funny since my prime care is st Mary's too". So, I got up an my hubby drove me to the ER in knoxville and they got a hold of my surgeons and treated me. We haven't been back.

Then when they misdiagnosed my sons broken wrist and had to call us back to say it was broken they promised we weren't going to be charged a second visit. At that visit dr Kaufmann charged us over 200 for a splint placement on a $20 splint and she never even touched my at the time 3 year old son. As my mom and I tried to put it on my son was screaming tearing it off, when we asked what to do she said, "someone needs to be the parent". Omg, my son was three! Then she said he didn't need a cast. He continued to hurt and we saw our prime care he said he needed an ortho and when that doc saw his wrist he said he should've had a cast the whole two weeks we had to wait around for approval which wouldnt have happened had Kaufmann ordered him a cast! Which I reminded her of before I walked out of the ER. I had been told many times by the administration they would look into the double billing when it was their mistake. They never would call back and I had to talk to a different person every time. When they began to send bills they never adjusted our insurance so two doctor vista should have been 600$ well they wanted nearly 3000. We went to court and after we showed all the evidence the attorney said likely with all the abuse they would throw it all out. I was harassed almost daily by their bill collector even when we told them our insurance and everything. So that attorney scheduled another date with the court so she could take all the evidence back. She told me the date but realizing late on a Friday that court was that Monday by the time I called that Monday to find out what time it was it had already began and was almost over. I had a morning class and called after it to find out I pretty much missed it. Then, instead of throwing it out since we weren't there they stuck us with the 600 when I shouldn't have had to pay both days. I would have been happy to pay the other amount but when they promise you shouldn't be charged for their mistake they should stick by it!
