My neurologist referred me to a pain management specialist (anethesiologist) in the medical practice where she works. It is a small community and the anethesiologist refused to treat me for "personal" reasons. I had not even made an appointment with him, but another anethesiologist at the practice. I was engaged to the first anethesiologist's ex brother-in-law in the past. The first anethesiologist told the other one not to see me either. Neither dr. will treat me now. Is this discrimination? Why are they discussing my personal choices? I realize dr.s can choose who to treat but only when they are not discriminating, in non-emergencies, or not contracted to provide services by an agency (insurance, hospital). What can I do? This is very humiliating to be treated like this.
