How often do you hear a pain management doc say that their patient is a wuss and a slacker? How about telling the therapist to "kick the patients ***"???
Strike that. What I meant was STUDENT. I was reamed out for treating his patient. "STUDENT? Why is a STUDENT seeing MY patient? This is a workers comp patient, documentation is very important for reimbursement!!" "Because I'm doing my LAST clinical rotation before I graduate NEXT month." I wanted to add that I have superior documentation skills and that he's only a D.O. for crying out loud. I also wanted to mention that he would have known I, a student, was treating his patient if he had read the progress note that he signed last week. Instead, I hung up the phone and cried.
