I am out about $100 for prescriptions and copays, I missed about 5 days work and 1 night of school. I am incredibly angry that whenever I said I wasn't getting better I was just brushed off with more drugs. How do I put all that in a letter without using any bad language?I, too, recommend getting your medical records out of the office before sending the letter.First, write a screamer. Call the doctor (and his staff) every synonym for incompetent you can think of. Rage that you're going to get his license pulled, and he shouldn't be allowed to take care of a begonia, never mind a human being.Then tear that letter up.Write a calm, cool collected letter, listing dates when you called, what you were told, etc. Something similar to what you've written here (although I'd probably pull the comment about the doctor returning to where he was borrowed from. You can just say that you were told he had left the practice).Then describe the allergist's diagnosis, how it was confirmed with tests, and double-checked at a later visit.Note how much you've lost in terms of time and money. Remember, this is going to be seen, not just by the doctor, but by your insurance company, possibly the medical review board, and a group of other people. You want to look calm and organized. Do not allow yourself to lose your temper. You are pointing out that this doctor has misdiagnosed a serious problem, prescribed drugs without seeing you, and is responsible for lost time at work, in addition to numerous other problems.Hope you get an agitated response!Nancywandering in from Aruba's Isle to help
