I was in the hosp. with a staph infection in an extremity. Had a digit and bone removed. The infectious disease dr (and all my other drs) said I'd need 6wks IV Antibiotics. However when released, he said no followup needed and oral AB would suffice instead. My primary dr said he must bow to Dr. Infectious. Subsequently, the infection reoccurred and I ended up hospitalized again. When my primary questioned Dr. Infect. He was not pleased and recommended a new infect. dr. Well, two other Infect drs refused to see me claiming they are friends with orig. and it is conflict of interest! Finally found one willing and new dr claimed same issue. When questioned, dr stated it is standard procedure. Everyone I speak with thinks this very odd as if drs have all agreed to refuse to see others patients
