I have suffered a PE back in March of this year. I was referred to a hematologist. I had three total appointments with him but have seen his only once. The first time I went ha was in the office. He spoke to the receptionist and said he no longer wants to see patients for the day, even though I had an appointment and waited for over 30 min. He actually has no back door and walked out right in front of me and did not even talk to me. The second time I saw him regularly with no issues. Just yesterday I had a follow up to see if my blood clot resolved and I was there for over an hour and a half. I was the final patient of the day and he came screaming to the receptionist in front of me and my daughter that he will not see any more patients. She informed him that I was the last one left, and he said, no and that he was leaving and had a class to get to. I am very sick and in a lot of pain. He walked right out in front of me again and did not even see me. I had this appointment for over 3 weeks. I was told to reschedule but I will never return so I asked for a copy of my CT Scan.. After 6 months my clot is there and has not moved. I really needed to see him but he refused to see me.
It seems that you are asking if this is malpractice which is not the area of the law that I practice in but I would make two suggestions.
1) If you have no real damages - ie out of pocket or medical injury then you don't have a case
2) get a new doctor as this one seems rude at a bare minimum
Good luck to you.
