Mercy Gilbert Hospital / Mistreatment by ER Doctor and Staff
I just wanted to let you know my wife was in the ER at Mercy Gilbert on 2/15/10 in regards to complications developing from an ovarian cyst. She was referred to the ER by her OBGYN as well as another doctor she had seen on a previous visit to the ER, who advised her if the pain from the cyst intensified or moved to the other side, she should go to the ER immediately. When she was finally seen by a doctor there, who I believe went by the name Jason Daniels, he insulted her repeatedly, made improper sizist comments about her weight, and refused to give her any treatment, also making disparaging remarks about the decisions made by her previous doctors. He disregarded her entire medical history other than her pain medication (which she does also see a very exclusive pain specialist for), dismissed her complaint, advised her that EVERY previous doctor she had seen was wrong, and advised us it was her fault that he was unable to see the cyst on an ultrasound, even though her OBGYN had been able to see it with no problems. The doctor and the staff of the ER refused to allow her to see another doctor, and would not even provide a note for my wife to take to work, then calling security to escort her out when she insisted on getting a note at the very least, despite the fact that she was still wearing a hospital gown and hooked up to an IV. The nurse then proceeded to injure her in his haste to remove the IV from her hand. This is the worst treatment I have ever seen anyone receive at a place that supposedly practices medicine. I am inclined to pursue legal action against this institution for refusing proper treatment of a patient, and I want to inform everyone of the mistreatment that can be expected at this hospital and at the hands of this Dr. Daniels.
