A Patient Filed A Complaint! | Wednesday Checkup | Doctor Mike

  • čas přidán 22. 11. 2018
  • For this week's Wednesday Checkup, I wanted to share a story with you about how a patient encounter did not go as planned in my office. I thought I did everything right but the outcome was not what I expected.
    In life, there are many times when we have good intentions where the outcomes are bad. During those times we need to evaluate why that happened so that we can avoid repeating the same mistake over again.
    If you have an idea of something you want me to cover in depth, please let me know because I take your requests seriously. We will be back with more Medical Drama Review Series this Sunday so please submit more names of shows/episodes you'd like for me to watch. Love you all!

    I think the issue the gentleman had (and many others) is that most Doctors believe it is their responsibility to recommend the best treatment route for their patients (obviously, most will agree with this part,as your medical expertise is why we visit doctors to in the first place.) However, where many people end up growing upset with the care - or lack thereof - that they receive, is when the doctor takes this concept a step further, into the realm of simply denying ordering a test or whatever, because they don't feel it'd help. Let's flip this towards another example, with say a soon-to-be business owner talking with a lawyer about setting up the business entity. The lawyer may say that setting up the business as an LLC (more expensive) vs a Sole Proprietorship is not recommended and a waste of money. Here, like the doctor above, the lawyer is A. offering his expert advise, and B. offering the service of setting up the legal entity of the business. The business owner should take the smart advice of the lawyer into account, however he is still free to decide if he wants to pursue the LLC route or not - that's his legal right as an adult. With medicine however, many doctors will refuse to offer the service if it goes against the advice they presented to the patient. There are a lot of facets as to why this is the situation, but to many people, it comes across as the doctor is either afraid of any patient insurance issues/financial concerns, or perhaps the patient will feel the doctor is being egotistic and stubborn, because the patient is not heeding the advice given to them. There are people that believe when it comes to basic tests and such, it is not within the doctor's realm to decline tests and such that the patient wants to have done. Having said that, I do see that you state in your video that you offered to sign the patient up for an MRI if they really wanted to have it done after talking with you about it, which I think is great.

    The patient was an idiot because you gave him tips and advice on how to improve his level of health but he chose to ignore it and then file a complaint. Wow. He should be not allowed to come back if he cannot appreciate good advice. However Mike I'm going to be honest with you an MRI is important because it can further narrow your findings and allows you to see exactly what the person has which is causing pain such as a herniated disc, arthritis, bursitis etc meaning it can further narrow down your diagnosis even if your clinical reasoning might be accurate. I'll give you an example, when you're lifting a patient, it's better to get another staff and not needed later than having just one staff and later you're calling for help. My point is it's better to do a further test just to make sure because based on MRI and other results a physical therapist can then properly sort the problem. I'm definitely not saying that your reason for not doing an MRI is wrong, hell no but what I am saying is I think the MRI could also find other things which might also be a cause of the problem. What you said was 100% accurate, I would do the same if I was you and i wish i could meet you. You seem like a doctor who doesn't look at their patients as customers but you genuinely love your job and respect your patients. I wish more people would be like you. I'm being honest here and its what I think should've happened so don't attack me in the comment section....

    Let's be honest, he just wanted a miracle cure and got upset he didn't get it. He expected that you tell him what's wrong but he didn't the get the answer he wanted to hear.
    Ofc I understand the frustration, dealing with pain and being thrown around in circles only to be stuck at square one again. The complaint is still bothersome, almost seemed ungrateful after he was offered genuine advice to potentially fix his pain.

    Depending on the terrain (I live in a relatively mountainous area), I'D probably ensure some joint discomfort after 8-9 miles (no preexisting back problems). Good for him for getting up and active like that, though!! Props!
    Poor guy sounds miserable, though. Probably needs a serious vacation and maybe counseling to address the obvious stress he's experiencing.

    I had suffered really bad panic attacks and all my doctor said was to take Benadryl. I think I wasted like 4 min of her time and after 5 min she was out of the room. I felt really sad. But I know there are other doctors out there that actually do care! I appreciate the ones that do! ♥️

  • Lili Rose
    Lili Rose Před dnem

    So, I have the tiniest bit of input here. When I was younger I was experiencing some extreme pain and was frequently passing out and vomiting due to the pain. I went to see three or four doctors who told me it was related to stress. When one doctor did order me an MRI and an ultrasound, I was diagnosed with severe Endometriosis and a Bicornuate uterus. Now, I completely understand that in this particular case, the patients pain was, in fact, due to the stress and the things going on in his life. However, I can see that he may not have been able to draw the line from stress to physical ailment. Because of my experience with being told my pain was a result of something that was not the true cause, it is understandable to me why he may have been skeptical of this diagnosis. I am not by any means disagreeing with you, I just wanted to provide some insight from someone who has been in a very similar situation. I hope you have a Great day and thank you! :)

    I prefer when doctors give me more information and explain things and give options. tbh the whole reason I hate doctors is because they dont sound like they know shit, and Im scared they are gonna try and use me for a quick buck and they act like you dont matter like in and..get out of office deal. I hate that. I like when they are more friendly, personable and share their knowledge.

    The beginning of this story sounds exactly like me when I went to see my ortho surgeon except he wasn't as thorough and I wasn't looking to have an MRI. I even explained that the pain I was having was not the same as before my discectomy 2 yrs prior. I could tell it was muscle and not nerve related. The physical test they gave me were so limited yet they still did an x-ray, ordered an MRI and prescribed me pain meds and neurontin (I reacted horribly to both). When the x-ray and MRI didn't show cause for my recent low back pain they ordered a nerve block. These tests, appts and meds also cost me an arm and a leg. Eventually I realized the cause was the way I was sleeping and my mattress. I canceled the shot and researched on my own how I could stretch and improve my sleeping position to avoid more pain. It worked. Basically I wish my Dr. had spent the time on me that you did for your patient. All I got out of it was lost time and more bills. Some people don't recognize a good doctor when they see one.

    I recall, my biology teacher once saying a good doctor is one who will try to cure the patient with giving him the least amount of medication initially and by going as simple as possible, and doctor you did that. Besides you gave him time which nowadays is a rarity to receive from Doctors. You totally did what you could and I think it was professional and caring both.

    I think you handled this very well. Back pain is such a tricky thing to really pinpoint and treat. It can vary a lot. I'd much rather a doctor give me some other options to try first, before paying for an expensive test.
    I've always had back pain. Mostly because I developed very early and had large breasts on a small frame. That combined with my scoliosis has caused a good deal of pain. An MRI is just a test. It would not have cured or fixed anything. Even if he had gotten the MRI it doesn't change the recommendations to treat the pain.

    I’ve complained once about a doctor and that’s because he miss diagnosed my dad. He missed that he was in renal failure and unable to pass urine with him having a kidney stone that was blocking the exit.
    (He didn’t have a kidney stone and we knew this from the beginning)
    My dad almost died because they catheterised him WRONG and sent him home with it in incorrectly so he was bleeding and getting extremely poorly because he wasn’t passing any fluid so he was in complete agony AND my dad was beginning to get really bad pain in his back where he couldn’t move and the specialist CONSULTANT told him to go home and “have a bath cause it will ease the pain”

    Doctor’s can get things horribly wrong, i’ve seen this in my mother’s case in which she had to get a surgery on her small intestine a month away from an emergency after she tried to get people to care for over 2 years. I really don’t believe this is something serious and I feel you tried to help them as well as you could. Back problem’s often get fixed by physical therapy or maybe it’s just going to be chronic and medications will only be helpful

    I got a complaint the other day. The patient claimed that I, while examining her, was inappropriate and groping her. I was doing a pelvic exam and she claimed I was completely unprofessional and what I was doing was completely illegal. After my exam I told the patient my findings and she was left in shock when I went back behind the counter and finished serving customers at McDonald's breakfast rush.

    I’ve been there. As an anesthesiologist I often have a short time to establish a deep patient-doctor relationship. Once I was thoroughly explaining a plastic surgery patient how she would benefit from an epidural and she just freaked out. I had no option other to cancel the procedure because, even if I decided to go on with a general anesthesia, any postoperative issue would most definitely cause a lot of trouble. Surgery was rescheduled and my colleague who attended simply gave her a sedative, performed the epidural and all went smoothly.

  • no i dont trust the internet

    I think i understand completely why this guy did this. Last time i had to make a doctor's appointment i went in said my peice and then had a doctor tell me right away what he thought the issue was this was probably the best experience ive had but a relative of mine got into a pretty heated argument about a test they needed and the doctor who thought they were otherwise to young for the test (colonoscopy) the doctor basically just said your fine come back in a few more years. That really pissed him off having a doctor just brush away his concerns and tell him your wrong with little to no explanation. I feel as though in some capacity you made this guy feel like his concerns didn't matter because he was concerned with getting an mri and you were concerned with explaining more possible solutions to him and pathologically he came in for an mri and you told him it woudnt help that would annoy me to if i went in for something i was sure about and was denied or worse am told im just wrong and then denied

    When you talked about intentions, this has no relations to the video but this popped into my head.
    I had a bully, in later stages of the bully period, she’d follow me and stalk me, after my friend group and I told her to stop, kept moving, but she followed, repeat. I told multiple teachers but she ran away from them. After me hiding in the toilets, my friend told me that she wanted to confront me in private, we met and she started yelling in my face about me being rude and etc, she said that she wanted to tell me something and that’s her reason for stalking me and (over the last term or so) ridicule me and make me feel like crap.
    she wanted to be my friend
    And I can’t forgive her. Her intent was ok but the outcome was horrible. I’d been her friend but one drama she made 3 ppl cry, everyone else mad and wasted all our time, then she started pushing her opinions on my, like I was less of a person because I wasn’t vegan.
    Am I a bad person for lying to her and saying I wanted to be her friend?
    I’m not sure
    Her intent was nice, but her personality is oppressive and aggressive
    She’s moved to japan for a year but coming back next Yr, then we’ll part ways as I’m leaving next year. But I have some sort of inkling she’ll follow me there

    I also have a lower back pain, my family doctor sent me to take a picture of my spine (I never had any surgery unlike this patient). Neuro doctor told me exactly same things as Mike but i felt more assured since it came from a specialized doctor rather that someone who's trained to know a little bit of everything.

    P.S. I'm not insulting pediatricians in any way, if anything I always appreciate their work as they are the first to pin point possible problems.

    Sometimes, I find it very difficult to explain to patients, how psychosocial stress affects out physical wellbeing, because still many patients seem to be offended as soon as you bring up stress and mental processes. I believe, patients often feel like you are questioning whether their symptoms are "real". I really spend a lot of time with my patients, but sometimes all well-meant explanations on, e.g. psychoimmunological interavtions, still fail. And I get it, these processes are so complicated, we can't show them to our patients like we can show them imaging results. We don't have good pictures of how long term stress can benefit inflamation or changes brain chemestry. Especially patients with chronic pain have suffered for a long time and are frustrated. And of course they still hope for a simple explanation and a quick and "easy" treatment. And when you tell them, the best treatment plan is not quick and easy, but long and compilicated and requires lifestyle changes and what not, they get even more frustrated. So understandable!! But we need to keep explaining in order for the patient to get the appropriate treatment. I am sure, you do a great job, and are able to help most patients.

    As a patient who has spent a lot of time in hospital I have seen similar reactions. Maybe he focused on & heard the 'attributed to stress' in a negative way & couldn't hear your reasoning for not recommending an MRI at this time & has anxiety something is really wrong with his back= heard 'it's in his head' = 'not really there'? I find the minute you mention stress/mental health & the physical symptoms that can coexist or be aggravated by stress some people don't want to hear it or hear 'you don't believe me' 'they think I'm making it up' 'you aren't taking me seriously'.
    I always find it hard when you think you are on the same page as someone and have taken the time to fully explain something & think they understand you with good intent but they hear something totally different, especially when they are left feeling hurt or things are turn negative in some way.

    I keep coming back to your channel because of the way you approach problem-solving and patient education. You are reflective, cautious, and diligent in trying to convey truth to the best of your ability. (And also uber-pleasant and intelligent). There is always something to learn from bad feedback, and I like how you consulted with senior doctors to sort it out.

    I heard this story about half a year ago (early 2019) and the backpains your patient described sounded a lot like my own. So I started to lower my stress level. University was giving me a hard time and it's been getting better and better. If I have a rough week and stressfull sleep, my back starts to hurt again. It's fascinating how mental things influence physical health
    Thank you so much for telling this story!

    Just watching your video has helped me with my lower back pain. I didn't know that resting made it worse! As someone with fibromyalgia symptoms, my rheumatologist has always told me that gentle activity that increases over a long period of time is the best way to deal with pervasive aches and pains my condition can cause. When you said that being inactive can make lower back pain worse, a lightbulb went off in my head that hadn't before!

      Also, you are a wonderful human being and I appreciate you as a doctor! I would have loved a doc to give me non-invasive solutions first but still would respect my desire for an MRI and kept that option on the table. And it made me so happy to hear you prescribing physical therapy. I had a major surgery last year, and physical therapists made a HUGE difference in helping me get strong enough to help with pain before the surgery and with healing and reclaiming full range of motion after surgery.

    I have severe anxiety concerning dentist because of an incident in my childhood. But a few months ago I went to see another dentist because of pain due to my wisdom teeth. I had several panic attacks before I even met him and and held the hand of my mom the whole time. He then came, examined my teeth and explained every single thing he did, why he did it and went the weird words meant he told his assistant. He explained everything in so much detail our 30 minutes appointment took over one and a half hours. By the end I had no fear whatsoever left and was actually happy for my next appointment. You could say he was talking so much that my fear fell asleep.
    That was the best doctor I ever met.

    Personally, I’d _want_ a Doctor that would try to explain things to me like you do. For my personality, that can be a form of comfort; to know that somebody more knowledgeable than myself does care enough to help me understand what’s going on.
    I guess that for some personality types, that can come off as condescending. Like they feel they’re being talked down to and not taken seriously. I can understand that, I’m some ways.

    My country has universal health care. My knees were having some issues like crepitation and joint locking. 3 specialists did PE on my knees and disagree with my request to get an MRI. They told me that my knees look completely fine and they failed to elicit any pain but only some minor crepitation. They referred me to the rehab department and they actually rejected my request for a rehab too. 1 year later, my knee problem never get any worse. In fact, it's now better as long as I don't stand or sit for too long. Those doctors saved the MRI and rehab money for those who actually need them...

    Would it kill you to just write a prescription for an MRI?
    Are you concerned about how much his insurance is going to bill him?
    He wasn't asking for pain medications aka opioids on the first visit.
    I think it is wonderful that you spend time with your patients and give your honest opinion, but come on. Write the damn prescription for the MRI.
    If nothing else it would have given him a piece of mind especially concerning he's already had back surgery at a pretty young age.

    My dad gets lower back pain pretty often, and sometimes it gets so bad that he can't move. Those days are very stressful for him and the rest of our family. He says that he doesn't want to go to a hospital because he doesn't want it to be nothing and take up a doctor's time. What do you think he should do?

    He probably felt like Dr. Mike was trying too hard. He (patient) probably felt like he (Dr. Mike) was explaining so much that something wasn’t quite right. So he just left the idea of Physiotherapy and filed a complaint thinking it was something bad since he was explaining it as an extremely good thing and thought Dr. Mike was trying to be manipulative. I understand his point of view and Dr. Mikes point of view.

    Don't suggest Osteopathic manipulation would be a good start. Might as well have offered him healing crystals.

    That patient agreed to something and later filed a complaint for Dr Mike not helping him.

    Honestly, I don't think you were in the wrong. As someone who has been to the hospital/clinics more times than I should have, I can sure as hell say that I would kill to have a doctor like you. What I think is that the guy wanted a miracle drug or something. He wanted you to zap him with your doctor magic and cure him. Of course it had to be someone around my age too 🙄. Any who, he couldve been upset that you said the part about the MRI as well. Some people come into clinics thinking they're super smart because Google told them what's good or not good. I'm thinking he wanted you to agree with the MRI but instead you kinda 1-Upped him with facts that MRIs aren't that good. He was either embarrassed or irritated that you 1-Upped him. Idk that's just my opinion though

    I'm a med student in Europe, and an interesting aspect of this is that patients prefer meds and prescriptions more than lifestyle changes. I totally understand why, I have a condition as well in which my doctor didn't help me much but it seems easy to tell what to do better than actually doing it.

    Sounds like he could have been trying to get some type of pain medication also.... Hate to say. This is coming from a recovering addict.

    My mom is probably one of those patients that complains... I know when my doctor takes a while with other patients, mom complains doc is too slow. However when doc takes time with me and orders labs and a colonoscopy, she's happy. Not sure if the colonoscopy is necessary, but I've been having pain similar to acute appendicitis for a couple weeks, so it wouldn't hurt.

    People just love entertaining the thought that it's not a physical problem. People hear "it may be psychological" and think "it's all in your head, you're just imagining it" - literally all of pain is all in your head, silly! That doesn't mean you're imagining it.
