. . . . . and apparently in this case, the absolute arrogance of an SOB who would walk in to a hospital room unannounced, uninvited, look at something personal like your X-ray,
I fired a hospital doctor on the spot for doing that after my last surgery.
He walked into my hospital room and started asking me questions about how I was doing.
I asked him, "Who the hell are you?"
He said, "I'm Dr. frickface (not his real name, as Chicken would say) and I'm on the hospital staff."
I said, "Did my surgeon ask for your opinion or ask you to check on me?"
He said, "No, the hospital provides its own doctors to check on patients."
I said, "Have you consulted with my surgeon about my procedure?"
He said, "No."
I said, "So, you know nothing about my medical history? You know nothing about my surgery or the results of my surgery?"
He said, "That's right."
I said, "Well, doc, in that case, you're free to leave. Thanks for stopping by but don't do it again. And I'd better not see a bill from you."
He actually sent a bill for $250 which I wrote to the hospital and the insurance company and said there were no services delivered by the doctor named in the bill. I told them it was a scam bill and shouldn't be paid. I never heard anything further about it.
