Daughter was experiencing major pain on her side, which was worse with breathing. She went to ER & was there for over 4 hours w/out any test being done. After complaining they finally did a chest x-ray & they labeled it as "just back pain" but she knows her body & that something was wrong. She went to family doctor today for a second opinion & was scheduled for a CT scan & blood work; which showed kidney stones. I feel that was complete malpractice. They didn't attempt to do a physical exam to palpate the pain, blood tests, urine test, offer any medication. A chest x-ray after complaining? Any doctor worth their spit would test for kidney or appendix with pain on the side.
