Well folks, Im learning alot about Doctors. I understand they say they will attempt to help me with their treatments
but it gets slightly depressing when after 5 attempts with No benefit what so ever, they continue to claim
the treatment might, thats might help. Acupuncture was a total waste of time to me. I was expecting to feel some type
of relief after the treatment. The Doctor wouldn't come back into the room after the needles were removed. He sent in his
nurse in to turn off the electric pulses going through the needles and then removed the needles themselves. She would say,
"the Doctor will see you again in 2 weeks." Well after the fifth attempt, I said , nope, I want to see him again now. So He came
back into the room saying, well if you don't feel anything now, I guess the treatments aren't working and thats all I can do. I'm
wondering how many times he would have tried the same treatment before He would come to that conclusion. Guess he just wanted to
make the money. I was sent to this Doctor for a disability rating. My primary Doctor claims I have a 10 to 15 percent disability, however,
hes not the one authorized to give disability ratings. The acupuncture Doc is. So during my first meeting with this Doctor, he examined
me and said I might qualitify but before he gives me a disabiliy rating, he want to try to get rid of my back pain with acupuncture. Now after he tried, he claims
since Im still working, Even in pain, that I don't need a disability rating. First he claims I do qualitify, now he claims I don't. He just wanted
the money. Now I would have gone throught the treatment anyway, just to get rid of the pain I have in my back. It would have been worth it,
but Don't say You do qualitify and then say you don't just because your still trying to work to suport your family. I asured him I wasn't
going to stop working, that even with my back pain, I was still able to function, but its hard and the disability rating would only help with my law suit
so it wouldn't drag out in court. This quack claims that unless I had a limb lost or couldn't walk, that no matter how much pain I was having,
If Im still able to walk, I didn't require a rating. The ex rays and MRI's show the damage, so now Im going to find another Doctor that gives disability ratings
that has some compassion. Just venting some frustration here. I only wish my primary Doctor could give the rating. I wouldn't be going through this head ache
along with my back pain. My lawyers are working hard for me and I expect a small settlement of under 12 thousand, which isn't worth what I've been going through.
With the Disability rating, according to the Lawyers, I might get as much as 20 thousand, still not worth the permanent pain I have in my back. Wish this whole mess didn't
happen at all. Frustrated!
