Arizona Medical Board - Dr inappropriate behavior

Recently I had a consultation with my doctor, Dr Michael Yim, director at Northwest Health Care 10370 N LaCanada, AZ 85737
After discussing treatment options, we came to the conclusion that we had a difference of opinion, he said then, maybe I should find a different doctor, and I concurred with that option. It was all done in the examination room, in private between Doctor and Patient. About two weeks after, he wrote a letter and sent a copy to Medicare saying that he was no longer going to provide medical care for "inappropriate behavior ", I have no idea what that meant and he also precluded me from seeing any other doctors there. This inappropriate behavior seems to be coming from him not me, he also stated it was in the office, and as we all know exams are in a private room. I have found a different doctor, but I'm perturbed that a professional person such as this can stoop to this level. I've called Medicare to inform them of this false accusation, and I'm writing a letter in response to Dr Yim so he can explain the meaning of inappropriate behavior.

Desired outcome: Letter of apology to me and a copy to Medicare

Arizona Medical Board - unethical behavior

I went to my Pulmonologist in Yuma, AZ,
Dr. Mallappa Neelappa, MD
For a prescription to get an auto CPAP machine and a home sleep study.
I got the prescription for the CPAP but he refused to give me a prescription
for the home sleep study because he has a sleep clinic and wants to collect the fee.
I previously tried his "mini- motel" and had no success going to sleep so I did a home sleep study with total success.
All I want is the prescription for the home sleep study.

Keith Parker

Desired outcome: Prescription for home sleep study!

Arizona Medical Board - Unprofessional behavior, bullying and name-calling

I had my annual appointment with Arizona Oncology, 1845 W Orange Grove Rd Tucson AZ, at 11:00 AZ June 23, 2021. Dr Jennifer Hallum did the exam.

Arizona Medical Board - Dr. Martin Langford

He is negligent and boders on malpractice. Dr. Langford and his team laughed at me when i told them i was juicing. I wasn't doing chemo radiation and surgery and i was told i couldn't do it anyway, but i didn't want to do it anyway so i am juicing. I am healing. The body can heal itself with the right nutrients. And it is happening. Dr. langford is pissed off cause it is working and would not give me health provider encouragement and positive reinforcement. When i asked him if a 25 % drop in tumor markers would be significant(and i knew it would) he looked at floor and barely shook his head yes so as to not agree with me too much, cause it wasn't chemo, radiation and surgery. The burning was subsiding a great deal under my arm in axilla and i asked him what that would mean and he said it was because something was rubbing against it on outside. The burning was inside of me on the tumor. What he said was stupid. I said no, the tumor was burning and it is not burning anymore. So i said to him, that would mean it is healing, wouldn't it? He slowly nodded his head and looked at the floor, once again not admitting to the truth, only barely. I had to drag it out of him. He was being negligent and malpracticing. First blood test, i asked him what he was looking for on blood test and he showed me ca 27.29 tumor marker section. So i watched tumor marker dropping significantly over 5 months. From 80 first month to 70 second month and then next time there was a 65 % drop. And this last blood test another 6 points which in all is 72 % drop in 5 months. He never once remarked on how well i was doing or the progress i was making and never said anything about significant drop in tumor marker. That last time i went to see him, he did his 10 minute thing and then went to leave. I asked him on his way out, how come he didn't remark on tumor markers dropping a whopping 72%. I had to drag it out of him. He should have said something to me the minute he walked into the room about significant decrease in tumor marker. HE SAID NOTHING. NOTHING. i had another ultrasound later and radiologist said petscan is more accurate. Langford tried to tell me that ultrasound was more accurate than any petscan or hand measure. Langford said that cause ultrasound was showing bigger size and wanted to lie to me so i wouldn't think juicing was working. Ultrasound later on after i fired him showed a signifcant decrease in tumor size, about 2.1 cm. Oh by the way, he killed his wife with chemo, radiation, and surgery. That fraud of a doctor also put in my medical chart that tumor markers dropping, even significantly 72 % doesn't mean anything. Then why the heck was he looking at the blood test ca 27.29 that he showed me in the beginning. He's pissed off that i am healing. I saw him from jan, 21, 2021 to April 19, 2021.

Arizona Medical Board - Lack of medical service in Yuma Az.

I have come to the conclusion that the city of Yuma Az and, most likely all of Yuma County lack the ability to provide medical care approaching that of most third world countries. It is unbelievable that you cannot even contact a so called medical provider because their landline service is not functioning and they have no other method of making contact. It...

At the time I contacted them, I informed them that I have serious medical and mental...

Arizona Medical Board - Medical records for Richard Martinez 8512 E. Calle Bolivar Tucson AZ 85715 (520)250-7042

I, Richard Martinez, was a patient at Desert Pain & Rehab in Tucson Arizona for nine years with no problems then I began to be seen by Donald Seidel, PAC. He began to tell me to hoard my medication and take my meds other than the way they had always been prescribed. I complained about him and said that I no longer wanted to be seen by Mr. Seidel. After my complaint I was sent a termination letter which sighted that I WAS NOT taking my meds as prescribed. I have fractures in my back and tailbone along with other maladies that are very painful. I signed a release for my medical records to be sent to my primary care doctor so I could get a referral to a new pain mgmt clinic, I also signed a records release there. That was 6 weeks ago and Desert Pain & Rehab has yet to send my records dispute numerous requests from my doctor or the pain mgmt clinic I was referred to. I cannot be seen or obtain the medical services I need without these vital records and Desert Pain & Rehab is refusing to hand them over to me personally sighting office protocols. PLEASE help me as I am quickly running out of my medications and will soon need to go to emergency risking my already compromised health during a world pandemic. You can also consider this my formal complaint against Desert Pain & Rehab and against Mr. Seidel PAC. I have also filed a grievance with Banner health insurance (they have also requested my medical records on my behalf to no avail.) Thank you.
