Investigator has been signed in complaint against work comp doctor
#1
I received a letter today from the Kansas Board of Healing Arts. This is the board that license doctors in the state of Kansas.

July 2010 I was injured by the work comp doctor while he was doing an exam. The injury resulted in the need for surgery with an ACDF being done February of this year.

The letter I received today reads, An investigator has been signed to your case and will be contacting you for an interview and obtain additional information, if not already done so.

Please keep us informed of your address and telephone number should they change. We will continue to keep you update on the status of the case, including advising you when the matter is resolved.

This is a victory in itself as many complaints filed in our state do not make it to the point of an investigator being signed to the case, with the complaint ending up in file 13.

My goal in this is to help prevent others from being injured by this doctor.

I filed the complaint for two reasons.
1. Based on my injury.
2. The doctor changed the medical records to cover up my injury.

Get him Bummer, I hate that doctor. I will never forget the look on his face when he walked into the exam room and recognized me. It was like 'Oh crap, what have I walked into'. Almost wish we could do the same thing again.

A former co-worker of mine has to see him for an IME next Tuesday. I told her to tell him right off from the start to 'Only exam her left shoulder'. No other part of her body. She'll knock the crap out of him if he even tries.

Bronoco I will only receive money if I file a malpractice suit. I have talked to attorneys but they all say the same thing, my witness is related to me and family lies for family. I had a documented previous injury of the cervical spine, dosn't matter that my condition was stable and with no additional medical treatment needed according to the neurosurgeon 3 months before I was injured by the wc doctor.

It cost $90,000.00 for a malpractice attorney to sign up a client. One attorney told me if I were dead he would take my case as then the case would be worth it.

Now I remember you mentioned the costs before, that stinks.... Well hopefully this ruins his rep/career and stops his practice...

This is the same doctor and that has been reported to the state board.

My attorney provided me with documents and they were sent to the board when the complaint was filed.

This doctor's brother is also an orthopedic surgeon, well, was. Sued atleast 6 times. Lost his license once, got it back. Now he does in house plastic surgery and Social Security Disability IME's.

I guess this type of behaviour runs in the family. His brother, we'll just call him Dr. M, cracked my stepmother's femorial stem while doing a hip replacement on her and didn't realize it. He was one who didn't believe in ex-rays right after surgery to ensure placement. He had her out of bed the next day, she complained, argued that it hurt too much. The next day her femur broke below the implant when she put weight on her leg. She's never walked properly since.

Is the board of healing arts the same as the state medical board? In NYS I think it is called the medical board or something. I had filed a complaint on behalf of my sister for a doctor who refused proper treatment for her because he said she was "pyschosematic". she ended up having to have her gallbladder removed after 2 years of this doctor telling her it was in her head because she suffers from Bipolar. Anyways, my point being, I contacted the state of NY and filed complaint, they pulled the records of my sister/doctor reports to determine if there was any wrong doing on part of doctor, plus they see if there were any other complaints. There was a list of things they did in their investigation before letting us know. of course they did not find any wrong doing, but he died of cancer about 8 months later. Just wondered if your state agency is the same, just goes by another name?
Live, Laugh, Love ~
