I last saw my physician there in mid November for a followup. Have had continued difficulty with tendonitis and needed some clarification for insurance forms. DOCTOR HAS LEFT. NOT A WORD FROM THEM ABOUT IT THEN, NO WARNING, NOTHING. THIS IS ABANDONMENT, FOLKS. I had to sever my relationship with my old rheumatologist because HE OBJECTED TO THE FFC CLINIC. HE THOUGHT THEY WERE WAY OUT THERE, IN HIS OWN WORDS AND WOULDN'T TREAT ME IF I SAW THEM. Then, THEY ABANDONED THEIR PATIENTS LIKE THIS, WITHOUT A WORD TO WARN ME SO I COULD GET ANOTHER DOCTOR. They are interviewing for a replacement, which could take a couple of months. In the interim, another physician from their San Antonio office is coming FOR TWO DAYS A WEEK, AND I COULDN'T GET AN APPOINTMENT TILL MID JANUARY FOR A MEDICATION PROBLEM FROM SOMETHING THEY PRESCRIBED AND FOR A PROBLEM THEY WERE TREATING, WHICH IS URGENT. I am FED UP WITH THESE PEOPLE. I spoke with the TX Board of Physicians and they said that unless it was an unforseeable EMERGENCY, WHICH THIS WAS NOT, THAT PATIENTS SHOULD HAVE BEEN NOTIFIED BEFORE SHE LEFT. Then, the FFC told me they WERE TELLING PATIENTS WHEN THEY PHONED IN FOR APPOINTMENTS. THAT IS UNETHICAL, FOLKS. Patients phone in with immediate, urgent problems only to find out that they don't HAVE A DOCTOR ANYMORE. I am AN ADVANCED NURSE PRACTITIONER AND A CERTIFIED REGISTERED NURSE ANESTHETIST WITH 25 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE, NOW DISABLED, AND THIS IS SIMPLY AWFUL. I RIPPED THEM A NEW ONE, IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN. NURSES ARE NOT THE TYPE TO DO THIS TO. Just a warning to all of you. I AM GOING TO FIND A NEW RHEUMATOLOGIST.
