Arizona Medical Board - dr. fernando decastro

My name is Elese Weaver & my husband's name is Buster Weaver. My husband is 70 years old & in very poor health, he was a patient of Dr. DeCastro's for over 15 years. At the beginning of February he went to the hospital because he could no longer urinate on his own & had to be catherized & still has the catheter in. While I was at the urologist's office I spoke to Carla at Dr. DeCastro's office & told her I wanted to cancel our February appointment because we had to be at the urologist's office. She never canceled that appointment & as a result we were discharged from the Dr.'s practice without notification. When I called 2 weeks later I was informed that my husband was no longer a patient because he had misses 8 appointment's in 15 - 20 years. I was told that if he needed any of his prescriptions refilled they would do that. To make a long story short I called in the prescriptions and they never authorized them, then I called them directly and they refuse to refill his prescriptions because it's been a month since he was discharged from the practice, without notice. I informed them that I have tried to get his 2 prescriptions filled for over 3 weeks to no avail. Now my husband is without his anti seziure meds or his metoprol & they refuse to help. I have an appointment on Monday with a new Dr. It would just be nice if the doctor would live up to his word after 15 - 20 years of my husband's patronage.

Arizona Medical Board - Doctor

SUBJ.: Arizona Medical Board Decisions

I find it very difficult to understanding the deliberation process of the Arizona Medical Board in making their decisions in both Cases (Complaints) below. Is there no review of the Arizona Medical Board’s decisions, when there is an injustice and failure to base their decisions in according with the A.R.S 32-1401 and Arizona Medical Practice Act. HOW CAN THE PUBLIC TRUST THE BOARD TO PROTECT THE PUBLIC SAFETY AND NOT THE DOCTOR’S INTEREST, WHEN THERE IS SUFFICIENT EVIDENT OF A CLEAR VIOLATION OF STATE STATURE, THE MEDICAL PRACTICE AND JUST A COMMON RESPECT AND DECENCY FOR HUMAN LIFE.

The cases are posted on the Arizona Medical Board’s website (www.azmd.gov).

Case No. 1 (MD - 07 - 1095A) DECISION: (Doctor) “Accept proposed consent agreement for a LETTER OF REPRIMAND FOR PHOTOGRAPHING AND VIEWING A PATIENT’S PENILE TATTOO.”
Arizona Medical Board - Final Minutes for Regular Session Meeting, Held
August 6 & 7, 2008, p. 8

Case No. 2 (MD 07 - 0798A) DECISION: (Doctor) “Issue an Advisory LETTER FOR INADEQUATE MEDICAL RECORD AND INADEQUATE INFORMED CONSENT FOR PERFORMING A NEW PROCEDURE. THERE IS INSUFFICIENT EVIDENCE TO SUPPORT DISCIPLINE. OBTAIN 15-20 NON-DISCPLINARY CME IN MEDICAL ETHICS WITHIN SIX MONTHS. THE CME IS IN ADDITION TO THE HOURS REQUIRED FOR LICENSE RENEWAL”.

From the Minutes - “Medical Consultant stated that the doctor misled a patient by failing to disclose that he would not be the surgeon of record and that this was his first live human case. The case presenter commented that it was erroneous and deceptive to document himself as the supervising physician of a procedure that he had no experience in performing. The board chair found that the doctor was deceitful in having the other physician take credit for the procedure. The Medical
Consult pointed that the other physician testified that he and the doctor received credit for performing the procedure”. (THE OTHER DOCTOR WAS THE GHOST SURGEON)
Arizona Medical Board - Final Minutes for Regular Session Meeting, Held
October 8 & 9, 2008, pp. 19-20

MY PERSONAL COMMENTS - I agreed to have the Robotic Assisted Procedure based on (1) the doctor told me that I would be his 4th procedure (LATER FOUND OUT THAT THE 3 PRIOR PROCEDURES WERE PERFORMED ON LABORATORY ANIMALS, (2) that he was in the early learning curse of the new procedure - ROBOTIC ASSISTED SURGERY, (3) my doctor was listed on the HOSPITAL SURGIAL REPORT as ASSISTANT SUPERVISING SURGEON AND THE OTHER DOCTOR (GHOST SURGEON) WAS LISTED AS “SURGEON OF RECORD”. I NEVER HAD ANY CONTACT WITH THE GHOST SURGEON PRIOR OR AFTER THE SURGERY, (4) the doctor stated to the board when asked, when did you discuss the procedure with the patient? His response was the morning of the surgery, in the pre-surgical area, prior to surgery. (THIS CONVERSATION NEVER HAPPENED, WHILE I WAS AWAKE!), (5) I WAS USED AS A HUMAN EXPERIEMENTAL SURGICAL SUBJECT FOR BOTH DOCTORS TO THE REQUIREMENTS FOR THEIR CERTIFICATE IN THE ROBOTIC ASSISTED TRAINING IN MID JULY, 2008, I WAS THEIR FIRST PROCEDURE. I WOULD HAVE NEVER CONSENTED TO BE AN EXPERIMENTAL SURGICAL SUBJECT.)

Based on the facts of the case, the violations of the Arizona Medical Practice Act and Arizona Revised Statute 32-1401 how could this be a just decision in my case. So far no STATE, FEDERAL AGENCY OR THE GOVERNOR’S WOULD LOOK INTO MY COMPLAINT. I WILL NEVER SEE THE ARIZONA MEDICAL BOARD’S DECISION AS A VALID DECISION, IN ACCORDING WITH THE MEDICAL PRACTICE ACT OR ARIZONA REVISED STATE STATUTE.
