I'm going through a BWC claim that started in 2010 when I fell and landed on an arm and 3 surgeries later, it's not right. I developed depression over the incident and it brought back a lot of PTSD issues I had stored away over the years. I've been in Public Safety for 20 something years. My Attorney set up an appointment with a Psychologist, who I saw 4-5 times and he did an Evaluation to allow for some Psychological conditions. Either BWC or my employer, I can't tell which, set up an appointment to counter the allowance.
I arrived at an office that was completely empty, dirty, waiting room with mismatched chairs and I was led to an examination room and given a 350 question test. The examination room looked like a High School Drama club had thrown together something to "look" like a Doctor's Office. As I was doing the test, the "receptionist" walked in, knocked over a tray containing wooden tongue depressors, the plastic thing you put into someone's ear, and the rubber reflex hammer, on the floor. She laughed and said "I feel sorry for whoever gets those things put in their mouth." She wasn't kidding, she put them right back into a kidney shaped plastic dish. She interrupted me 2-3 times to see if I was done.
The Psychologist, who has an office about 2 hours away, arrived a bit late, and then led me into another room to speak with me, that also looked like a High School Drama club had thrown together. He sat in the big, high plush chair and he motioned me to sit in a worn-out metal chair that looked stolen from Little Sisters Of the Poor after Bingo Night. The Psychologist then launched into a sermon about bad Psychologists, inquired into who I had seen previously, and then told me I had seen "not a very good one (Psychologist)." His tone started out Father Knows Best and ended derrogatory. He asked loaded questions, changed words in my reply, asked repeatedly, "would it be fair to say..." to change meaning, again made negative remarks about my psychologist, asked me repeatedly about beating my wife, alcohol use, illegal drug use, how people in my profession are argumentative, tried again the "would it be fair to say..." approach to answers. When it was over, I was fairly upset. I didn't blow up, just got home and tried to forget the matter but can't.
I don't know if Dr. No was trying to provoke an angry outburst to disprove a claim or show by not having an angry outburst also disproved a claim. I understand someone is paying him to disprove a Condition, but aren't there guidelines and boundaries with this sort of thing?
