There are sooooooooooooo many docs that do this, and they are only doing it to cover their asses.
Get a lawyer to send him a letter to remove the libel from her chart or you will sue,
Friend of mine did this and the note was out of her records in a flash.
Better do it. Spending a couple hundred is nothing to get that out of her chart, otherwise it will follow her around for the rest of her life and she will be black listed.
There are not a lot of doctos around that will treat Fibromyalgia with pain meds. Most do everything else that they can think of first, leaving their patients to suffer.
See them all the time in the ER's trying to get something for their pain.
A woman in my office went through the exact thing when her purse was stolen.
She had a police report and it was stolen AS she walked out of the pharmacy.
They all vouched for her but her doctor dropped her anyway and refused to give her another script for her Fibro pain.
I have fibromyalgia. Most meds don't work. Most people claim to have fibromyalgia to get pain meds, and they usually end up addicted. That's why Drs. are so precautious about who and what they prescribe to.

Dr. Chahfe is by far the worst doctor. I personally had a bad surgical experience with him and so did my grandma which resulted in her death.
I highly doubt an ENT doctor resulted in your grandma's death. He saved my and my mother's life after endocrinologists turned us away. I worship this man and my 14 year old daughter trusts only him as a physician.

<quoted text>Are you kidding? you would be lucky to have DR Kachar take care of one of your loved ones, he leaves no stone unturned, and is one of the most compassionate people I know. He only gives pills when needed. I know he has heavy accent, but he will do everything in his power for his patients.
You are kidding right, you mean Dr. Kan-ya Kill-me? wouldn't want him to care for my cat, and I don't like her.

You have to remember that doctors are NOT God. They can not associate every symptom with a diagnosis. You can't walk into a doctor's office and expect them to know what is wrong with you all the time.

Sometimes there are mystery diseases. Sometimes many symptoms can be many different conditions.

You can't blame doctors all the time when someone dies under their care. How you live your life, whether you smoke, drink alcohol, do drugs, have hereditary conditions etc ALL play a BIG factor in your health.

The problem today is that people think that they can live their lives with no restraint and then ask a doctor for a pill to erase the consequences of the unrestrained lifestyle...sorry it won't happen!!!

The reason why we have a lot of crappy docs around here is because we are a HUGE Medicaid area. Medicaid reimbursement is horrible. Most doctors will move to another area and practice there in order to make better money.

So, stop blaming docs for everything. This is why our medical co-pays get higher. Doctors have to raise their rates in order to pay for malpractice insurance. People get too sue happy and sue for everything.

Yes, sometimes the doctor is to blame for neglect etc but sometimes YOU are to blame for how you live your life, you will have to deal with the health consequences.

Dr Dang - terrible Doctor thinks he walks on water

Dr. Charles Hobbica - very mean and arrogant he is the old man in the big old yellow ugly building on Gensee street.

Dr Chahffe - very , very, very, very bad Doctor get the hell out of Utica don't go to him. He has screwed up more people that I know.

Dr. Ferriaro , very, very, very arrongant, terrible bedside manner another one thinks he walks on water and loves to have his pts. wait for him. One big show off may be good what he does but makes his pts. feel like he doesn't care. no compassion.

Mr. Fayez Chahfe. I'd call him Dr. but that would be a stretch. He looks in your ear, talks real loud about nothing at all, then you come back to repeat the process. Still have a problem? Oh, maybe we'll do surgery. Maybe put in a tube. Aw, hell, if that doesn't work, we'll just patch it up. Pull a Van Gogh and you'll be better off.
Agree COMPLETELY! Chahfe is the WORST. Love to do surgery, then screws you up completely. Don't go to him...go to Dr. Kelly in Syracuse.

Dr. Ankur Desai and wife. referred to them for infertility and they don't give a shit about you. The whole place except 1midwife there are assholes. It takes them 2 weeks to even call you and then they tell you one thing and then the next time they claim they never said that. 1 year later and they have done nothing to help my diagnosis AT ALL...

Dr Potluri by far!
He was the ob on call when I delived my baby and he was the most miserable, rude bastard I have ever encountered and he treated the nurses like dirt. If I wasn't 7 centimeters dialated I would've had hubby drive me to Rome.
dr.potluri is my docotor and thats not how he is every month in his office. I actually like him a lot. I mean I always prefer to be seen by a Nurse Practioner, but he's not that bad.

Potluri - Told me I that I had a prolapsed bladder and fibroid that would cause cancer down the line. Wanted to a total hystectomy (cutting). I went for a second opinion - not in Utica - and was told that my bladder was not prolapsed, that fibroids were normal and mine was "unremarkable" - and to quote the second doctor, "I hate doctors who pay their rent by operating on people who don't need surgery." Thank God I went for that second opinion! PS - how many women has he axed for $$$$?
NO WAY! now i know to get a second opinion if he wants to operate on me. Thankyou. this is why im gonna stick to planned parenthood after my babys born the nurses there have always been extremly nice and helpful to me.
