We just got done talking to David Earnest in Raleigh, NC. he admitted that Dr.Steven Gaskin ( his client) made a wrong diagnosis.He also said " he was sorry, but that Dr's are not perfect." ARE YOU KIDDING ME???? He also warned us, which sounded VERY much like a threat...not to sue Dr. Gaskin. Mean while I'm stuck with a huge bill from Northeast Hospital in Concord, NC.( this is where Dr. Gaskin works) We kept trying to tell Earnest to look at the date on the X-rays & get someone to read the X-rays for hm. David Earnest said that he was NOT going to do that...the case is closed.
He said his job was to protect the Dr...even if he was wrong! Can you believe that? I had two Ortho Dr say Gaskin misdiagnosed, as well as our family Dr. There were at least 12 plus X-rays ( that we paid for) that showed Gaskin made a huge mistake. Knowing all this...Earnest ( Medical Mutual ) said they would stand behind Dr Gaskin, because they are protecting their client! THEN threatened us not to sue Dr Gaskin. This insurance company has NO ETHICS. I'm putting my X-rays & pictures of my misshapen thumb with the torn ligaments on U-Tube...I need a few days to get it together then look for me there & sign a petition to put people like D. Earnest & his insurance business in the spotlight of unethical people & companies that they are!
