what would you do?

ok first things first, i have been having trouble with the kids doctor. i told him i needed their file cuz they weren't coming back to see him. he wouldn't give them to me. we left state, the school was able to get a copy of each of the girls' records. today the younger two went to get their checkup. i found out that their old doctor hadn't been giving the girls their shots right. he skipped three shots Had that meant they each had to get five shots today! FIVE SHOTS EACH! i am steamed! i later found out that he had about ten law suits against him for malepratice. half of me is saying do it to! but the other half is like, you know he ain't gunna have anything by the time his ex and the other ten get a hold of him. heres the question: WOULD YOU BE MAD TO? OR WOULD YOU LET IT GO?

  • No wonder he wouldn't give you the medical records. It showed that he wasn't doing his job. He probably thought you were going to sue him too. That's really up to you, what can you do about it now. What's done is done. I think I would just turn him over and let them take his license away. At least you got them at a different doctor, and that's what was really needed. You probably wouldn't have found out if you had not moved away.

  • Yes I would be mad and yes I would go after him. First of all, if he screwed up your childrens' shots, I would be concerned that he even gave them the right ones! That is not something you mess around with. Secondly, he cannot deny you rights to your own child's medical records. I'm sure there is a law the prohibits him from doing that.

  • t's pretty standard that the amount of shots kids kid at their visit before kindergarten is 5 shots. it's disturbing. My husband had to hold our oldest son down while he got them. Now that I know this is common I plan on making the doc do things differently

  • I would file a complaint just based on the fact that he refused to give you the files.

  • i'd be super pissed off

  • You can be upset. You should be thankful that your children did not suffer and injury from this Dr. I doubt that you can sue him for not give your children the proper shots especially since they did not suffer any illness due to his neglect.
    I would file a complaint.
    Than I would go on and be certain that this sort of thing did not occur again with the next doctor.
    Be thankful that your children are healthy and happy that you were able to obtain the shots your children needed.

  • I'd be ripping mad. He should not be practicing. File a complaint against him.

  • file a complaint, but I doubt you have lawsuit material.
