Quoting ILOVEWINE:" Your should have got your own records. And your doctor isn't doing anything wrong, you sound really stupid. You can't sue for malpractice when you and your fetus are both alive lol"
Actually yes I can because I DID sign at their office in December to get them sent to my new doctor and they never sent them, and I have signed yet another one but they still have not sent them. I'm 38 weeks, they also know that, and if I deliver without having a doctor down here, then they get all the money from Medicaid for being the last doctor to see me. If something is wrong with me or my Child at the time of birth, then legally it is their fault because I have done everything I possibly can to get my records, and they are just refusing to send them. And without them, no other doctor can/will see me. Plus, add on the fact that he never once offered any kind of tests at the beginning, middle, or near the end of the time I saw him. (Meaning like the D.S. test or strep B, nothing) and as a matter of fact, didn't even do a pap smear at the beginning I had to remind him the next 2 visits. All he ever did was check the heart beat, try to tell me I was going to be induced and have a epidural, (even though I repeatedly said no), and then sent me home. Never asked what symptoms I was having, never offered advice or medication, never even asked if I was taking pre-natal!
So yeah, their asses are getting sued. I'm not the first patient he's done this to, but I guarantee you he won't get away with it. I've done my research and homework, and everything he has and has not done, gives grounds for being sued.
It's their fault, and I'm not stupid.
