He called me an mf because I asked for identification from 2 young African Americans 20 years ago at his local watering hole. I was just doing my job and the guests were underage. He caused a big scene and was asked to leave. Wow maybe he has peace with his racist attitude now that he is older. Sure hope so!

My name when I was his patient was Jennifer Henley. In 2001 I was pregnant with my 2nd child (now 12 years old) Dr. Gooch was my Dr. I told him early in the pregnancy that something was wrong with me. I worked with a lady that was a retired nurse and she told me it looked like I had toxemia. I didn't know what that was I asked Dr.Gooch if I could have toxemia. He never tested me for it. Six months and 100lbs later I finally convinced the dr to induce my labor. I had retained so much fluid that I could not lay down and go to sleep because the fluid had blocked my air passage. After he induced my labor my blood pressure bottomed out and I began to hemorrhage and I dont recall much else. I ended up being diagnosed a rare condition called Postpartum Cardio Myopathy. I was 21 years old with congestive heart failure and they took almost 2 days to release the medical records. When they did release them of course they reflected nothing of the actual events. They covered there tails by doctoring the medical records because I couldn't find a lawyer to touch it but a terrible job at doctoring me and my unborn child. Later I did a term paper on toxemia and learned that the congestive heart failure wasnt caused by a rare condition because if that were the case I wouldn't have been able to give birth to 3 more healthy children after being diagnosed with post partum cardiomyopathy. However if a person has toxcemia and it goes untreated for the term of the pregnancy then the person can experience heart failure. Which is what happened to me. Now I am 34 years old and I had a heart attack at 33. Even though I cant prove it I will always blame Dr. Gooch and I am glad to hear that he retired from practice because I would hate to know that he was able to damage anyone else.
