Went to this E.r. on Xmas eve for a cut to my fingers. I was asked what happened. So I proceeded to explain to the doctor. That I was 12 to 15 ft away from an electric saw. That was being improperly... more used by another individual. When the blade exploded. Peices were sent flying, and one hit me in the hand. So fast I didn't realize what happened. Until I was bleeding and shock set in.
Doctor took one look called good Samaritan for an emergency surgery. "Please note" I had witness with me during this visit. So I was cleaned up, wrapped up, sent down the road to good Samaritan.
Where I was treated amazing & my hand was repaired best as possible. Now while I was there sober & under anesthesia. I was sked the same question about how it happened. Every hour on the hour, not once did my explanation change. Because there's no reason for it to. Because that's what happened, per multiple witnesses & surveillance video. Plus it's in my records a good Samaritan.
But the doctor at Scottsdale abrazo wrote that I was actually using the saw. Which when I obtained my records. I was confused by the entry. So I confronted the director, She sent me to risk management. So I discussed it with this department & after months of going back and forth. I was told doctor doesn't have to & refuses to amend his records, even though I have substantial proof he did not tell the truth in his report!
So beware of this place & get your records from them. Pay close attention, because it could really affect your life. They've definitly damaged mine
