This took place in NY. I went to see a dentist at a hospital because of a painful tooth. They took xrays and gave me an appointment in january to do work on it. I couldnt wait that long so I went to a dental clinic the next day instead.
I brought my xrays and med records from the hospital. The secretary and dentist approached me. First they said my records were not accepted because they were not in their system. But this made no sense since med records are accepted everywhere. And the dentist himself taught in the same hospital I got my xrays done. They said they needed more xrays. But I told them I already had already taken them and had been exposed to too many in the past. I even told them I have a hormonal imbalance sensitive to radiation. I got upset with myself naturally but didnt raise my voice. Then dentist walked off and I never saw him again. The secretary said the dentist cant work on me me cuz I got upset. The hell??? I couldnt believe this was happening. I had to endure this pain for a while. I asked to see the dentist but the secretary said no. I asked why and she said because I got upset. She walked back to her desk and then completely ignored me. I then said I was going to call a lawyer and complain about this with the ADA then I left.
The next day, I went to another dentist who accepted my xrays without any problems. But I couldnt get work done there either because of my insurance. So I had to endure this pain even til now.
I seriously want to sue the dentist that refused to see me for her stupid idiotic reasons while he ignored me and refused to treat me while I suffered with all this pain. This is a huge injustice and I strongly believe I have a case. Hope you guys can point me in the right direction and offer some advice. Thank you.
