I filed a complaint with the Arizona Medical Board over 8 months ago and just now received a response from their office indicating that they are dismissing an appeal that I filed against a Doctor Matthew Holland; a pain management doctor in Tucson, AZ.
In the original complaint I sent to the board, I addressed how this doctor mishandled my medical care where he was negligent in not sending me for an MRI x-ray scan to determine the severe hip/leg pain that I was enduring. When I requested from this doctor to give me some pain medication, he flat out refused to give me refills on my pain medicine. He asked me to return to his office for a epidural injection into my hip, which he claimed would help or rid my pain...well when I returned to the office for this injection, this idiotic doctor bruised my hands terribly, because he could not inject a needle into my hand to administer the sedative to help with the procedure. Instead of sending me for an x-ray, this clown of a doctor wanted me to have implanted into my body a device called "spinal cord stimulation" which would have done nothing for me in getting rid of the agonizing pain I was in. I went to my primary care doctor a week later and my doctor had me undergo an MRI scan which showed I had a severely herniated disk in my back, where pieces of the disk were lodged in my spinal canal. Well the Arizona Medical Board reviewed this complaint and decided that there was no "wrong doing" from this quack of a doctor. I've filed a handful of other numerous complaints against doctors who were negligent in the care that they gave me and also filed complaints with the AZ Medical Board and to no avail, they also dismissed those complaints as well!! The board members & doctors at this AZ Medical Board need to step down and resign, since they are so damn ignorant in recognizing medical malpractice when they see it! I guess the AZ Medical Board feels it is "acceptable" for a person to be in severe pain, whereas this doctor could have taken me out of my misery and sent me for a simple MRI scan, when I requested it from the doctor when I first met with him on my initial appointment. So don't waste your time with the Arizona Medical Board in trying to get resolution out of bad medical care you received from a doctor, because you will simply be treated like you are nobody and they will quickly, and wrongfully send you a denial letter on your complaint with their aweless attitudes!!! I ask myself why is your agency even in business?? Shut this Medical Board office down immediately and save the taxpayer money for state government offices that do something for the average american citizen that works so hard to pay his/her fair share of taxes!!!
