What an Experience!

Omg, where do i start. Lacroose business people call Mayo Clinic doctors a bunch of idiots and its no wonder why. I started seeing a Dr Tracy Warsing in Sparta Wisconsin. Everytime I was treated by her I got worse! Then i switched to a Tomah Mayo Md. I have labs taken three times... Got over four letters that Everything was normal. Then finally four months later a psychiatrist went over my labs to discover that a red flag came up twice on those labs! Gram negetive bacteria and Lymes! Can you say Stupid people. I sat right there with the second md while he went over them with me, and he missed their results! Idiots. Stay away from these idiots in Wisconsin!

MISTREATMENT BY DR'S AND SPECIALISTS

Terrible

Constantly treated like I am crazy because I have PTSD and drug use history. I am responsible, prompt, organized, and I am treated like dirt by every provider I see. Even if I wasn't these things, I would deserve human respect. I had heard good things and have been very disappointed instead

Testing....Testing.... "We Don't Like to Operate"

A Florida Mayo Clinic cardiologist appears to be a death watch observer. He prescribed no less than 15 mostly unrelated tests (including audiology), listened to my heart and patted my right leg once, declared a good circulation, despite the fact that the left leg was swollen, purple and numb. Net: A tumour of "uncertain behavior" was found on the right side of my back in 2015 and again in 2016. No biopsy or follow-up. Two very young interns, residents or just what ever they were told me to keep watching it for 6, 9 months or a year or so since "we don't like operating there". Being no owl, watching this tumour was quite difficult. Alas, there now is another tumour, this one quite solid in my left breast. Do I dare go back to the Brotherhood of Mayo, which treats patients according to their donations and wealth? Not if I want to live! Being a Medicare patient, albeit with supplemental coverage entitles me to inferior and teaching tool care in the Mayo Clinic and perhaps many other US medical systems. Mayo Clinic is open about its privileged system: Professional care for the wealthy; training and teaching subjects for the up and coming beginners. Medicare needs to step in, ease a way out of this poverty stricken disadvantaged institution or diligently pursue any medical discrimination with legal action.

It was very disappointing. No positive results.

It was very disappointing. No positive results. I just wanted filler in the creases above my lip. I was told there would be no problem doing that. It cost $600 for one syringe and it was used all over the area. My creases and apearance did not change at all. It took three phone calls to get a call back but they only said I would have to come back in and pay another large sum. I never would’ve had it done if I knew there would be no positive results. Pamela was very nice until she took the money. Then they don’t want anything else to do with you. I did not understand why she didn’t use a full syringe in just the one area I had concerns about. It was very discouraging to realize I had gone to such a reputable facility and git treated the way I did.

I got offered a security escort off campus here in FL one day for crying. I have Ehlers Danlos, autoimmune disorders, tar dive dyskinesia, Dysautonomia, Trigeminal nerve impingement and Chrinic Abdominal wall pain.

I had been sitting up for quite a while trying to explain in a smooth and logical manner what I needed, a lidocaine shot to the abdomen. They explained it would be six weeks before I could have this ten minute procedure and they would not refer me out to a doctor in the community for the shot. I broke down sobbing. They wanted me to stop or be escorted out by security.

Yet they tell you stress is to be avoided or you won’t get well. This morning I was fired by patient experience based on my having sobbed and not immediately moved (I’m mobility challenged and ride a scooter I should not be blind with tears so as not to run over other patients). I was not calling anyone names or “being aggressive” as they are saying. They threaten they have tapes but say they are private.

Not if they have me on them they aren’t. Then I wrote the CEO thinking, mistakenly that all of the lovely words on the walls about human dignity were true and suggested that specialty patients need one PCP and not to be bounced around. That got me a reprimand from patient experience telling me I can’t write to the CEO. This is America and my first amendment right is to write whomever I please.

I was in my bed at home when I was called and attacked. When pressed I called a doc a jerk and called the organization money grubbing. They this morning have used those two phrases and my crying in pain to dump me as a patient all together and I don’t even smoke so don’t feel like your behavior has anything to do with this. Your behavior is your choice and not their business.

Doctors are not judges. You are likely a person with a cleaner soul than people who have the ability to heal others but choose not to because they don’t like that person.

I had an appointment with Dr. Deepti A. Jacob in 1/25/2018. She was arrogant and made broad sweeping generalizations that didn't match with the research I have read. She said based on a few simple tests at another clinic that she could reassure me I didn't have a...

OB/GYN Visit

I am age 74 with a total Hyst,&ovaries removed. Dec 7th 2017 I discharged a large mucus plug vaginally. Was seen in LaCrosse on Dec.8th in the OB/GYN Dept. I saw a doctor there who said yes I did have a large amount of vaginal discharge. She proceeded to do 3 cultures and left the room telling me I could get dressed. After about 6-7 minutes a nurse came in and told me I could leave that that the doctor was done! I called on 3 different occasions shortly after being seen. I was always told that they would get back to me. The last nurse I spoke with (Paula or Pauline) said oh I've talked with you before and I will call you back today. Still waiting that call!! My question was simple. Where was all the drainage coming from and what was the cause. That is one dept. that I will never visit again ever!! I still have no answers.

Re-did tests I'd already provided results for, no diagnosis, charged the earth, no innovation, no thinking outside the square ... save your money.

They're like any regular hospital in any city. Really, do NOT waste your money as that IS what you will be doing if you go there.

If you go, do exActly as told. If you disagree at any time just be ready to walk away.

Patient experience, is not a patient ombudsman or a complaint office, if you fuss.

If you suggest an improvement, even if you are a total Mayo cheerleader, as I was. You will be dumped on your *** with no healthcare at all.

Dr. Rerun screws up two shoulder surgeries!

Started in 2014 for a very common shoulder shoulder surgery,HemiCAP on the left shoulder by Dr. Steinnman of Rochester. 2-7-15 right shoulder HemiCAP done. Day of surgery right shoulder swelled with blood and puss oozing from sutures. Came home sick and after a couple days had to go to local hospital for emergency surgery. Over a liter of puss removed and had to do a resection arthroplasty and spacer. Cultures from time grew E.coli as well as Propionibacterium acnes. Treated 6 weeks with IV antibotic. On2-19-16 had C.diff infection. Reimplantation was complicated by hematoma requiring debridement on 2-21-16. Developed recurrent infection leading to an irrigation an debridement on 3-21-16. Developed a recurrent infection leading to irrigation and debridement of the reverse total shoulder arthroplasty on 4-13-2016. This time, the cultures were again polymicrobial with anerobic organism including Finegoldia magna Actinomyces neuii, and Anaerococcuc octavius. Needed to be treated with six-week course of IV antibiotic therapy with ceftriaxone and cefadroxil FOR LIFE! Going ahead with left shoulder repacement LOCALLY. Right shoulder now functioning at 60%. Mayo Clinic Rochester was the filthy with bacteria!!!!! *** Mayo.

Don't even think about settling without advice from an attorney who deals in the area of medical malpractice. You have had alot of problems and I suspect a good malpractice attorney would represent you.

Never, ever attempt to be your own attorney in a matter such as this. Good luck.
