When you see three different W/C doctors, and they all have a different diagnosis, and you know that the last two they sent you to, are wrong, do you just go along with them till they release you or do you get more forceful on them refering you to another doctor? What if they refuse to refer you to another doctor and they release you? My fear is of my foot healing wrong or getting worse while I go through these games. I did go see a fourth DR on my own from worrying about it, and he says there is more damage than the WC doctors are reporting. This is my foot, not the companies or the IC to play games with. It is swollen, red and a deep dull pain. It looks as if the inside bone above the arch is falling to the ground and protruding. It feels like a club foot. As of right now, they are paying the bills, but not making my foot any better. The first and the doctor I hired on my own say there is a bone broken, but each says in a different location!
Is there any chance a WC doctor will find more wrong with a foot later? Or does the IC contract money mean more to him than letting people heal wrong with problems that stay with them the rest of their lives? Seems if you try to hire a lawyer to get proper care, they would quit paying the bills.
So what do you do?
