Nice. He's being treated and LVH and you interview a St. Lukes MD. Classic. Oh, by the way, why was he brought to LVH when St. Lukes is 2 miles away?

The LVH doctors that would be treating him and that would know about this condition wouldn't be able to talk due to patient privacy laws which is why they had to interview someone at St. Luke's that has no relation to Patterson's case.

So the St. Lukes doc that has NOTHING to do with the case IS qualified to talk about it? Nice try pulling out HIPPA, you must be educated, or just anti LVH like 69 and MCALL. Way to spin it 69. Unbiased journalism at its finest.

There is a privacy law that prohibits anyone in the hospistal that he is being treated to talk about his condition. That is why they will often ask the opinion of a doctor that is outside the scope of the law.

If you do not understand that, then you are a dummy.

Typical,
The law you are referring to is called The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996. You must have missed that reference in my post. Dummy

I attending the first open morning training session and after a few series Mike was on the sideline on one knee in obvious distress. The idiot standing beside me was yelling at him that he was fat and lazy, etc.
I hope that moron is wishing he'd kept his mouth shut but morons don't care anyway.

I was merely spelling it out for you since you obviously don't get what it means. Another doctors opinion is the only thing you are going to get on this one. Maybe you should realized what I was saying? Or maybe you are too stupid to understand doctor patient privileges? Probably a little of both.
