What an awful experience. I am sorry. Start with the AMA at: http://www.ama-assn.org/ama/pub/category... There is also a list of state by state boards on that page; choose yours and go from there. You can also check the states here - http://www.ama-assn.org/ama/pub/category... Also draft a detailed letter outlining every aspect of the visit in a straightforward manner and send it to the hospital's administrator(s) where he is privileged. You can also go online and spread the word, so to speak, about him at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/EndoDocs. If I were you, I would also send a letter to the doctor himself once all the other official reports have been made. Include case reports and journal literature about Endo persisting after hysterectomy (which of course it does) and how Endo is not associated with rape or childhood trauma and abuse, nor is the pain of Endometriosis in one's head. I would also send copies of everything to the insurance copies he is contracted with, just for good measure. See a true specialist who has compassion for Endo patients and the skills to help them; visit http://www.centerforendo.com, http://www.endometriosistreatment.org, and http://www.endoexcision.com for examples. She doesn't have to suffer and you don't have to be subjected to such unprofessional, incompetent, unethical behavior from an idiot who doesn't know how to treat women, let alone Endo. Good luck to you both.

Check with your insurance company and see what dates they paid and how much, and you can figure what you owe from that. Doctors dont keep good records and dont know what your particular plan will cover even if they accept billing to that insurer. There is no reason to file a complaint since it is between you and the insurance company. You would have to contact the local chapter of the AMA in NYC but it is difficult to prove.

Tell your wife that every guy whose ever had a prostrate exam has felt violated. Some examinations are uncomfortable and that's exactly what a lawyer will tell you. The doctor was a jerk, but there's probably not much you could do except make a complaint with the College of Physcians that overseas doctors. If he gets enough of those complaints, they might investigate him. If he did indead "Ram" his hand, there will be bruising. Take pictures and then you have a solid case and go to a lawyer.

Call the Better Business Bureau..you should be able to find the number in your local phone book...they can give you ideas as to who to call and what your options are. Also call your states attorney generals office..they can advise you of your rights and steps you should take. Calling either or both should get you started in the right direction. Good luck. And I am so sorry for your wife's bad experience.

Contact your county or state medical board and file a complaint. There may be others that have filed a complaint and another one may be the one that gets attention. If nobody complains, this jerk will continue to have the bedside manner of a jackass!!!!

Find out what hospital this doctor is affilliated with, then see if you could speak to the president of the hospial. If that doesnt work, try asking the hospital, human resources department, they should be able to let you know.

Mordecai Originally Answered: Physician Assistant vs. Pharmacist?
I have been a PA for 11 years. I believe your question is flawed.. being a PA or Pharmacist is up to your personal choices and skills, etc. I hope the information that follows will be helpful. The type of work is very different between the two careers. There is nothing particularly "better" about one over the other. In most cases, the salary potential is higher with the PA profession. A PA is responsible in diagnosing and treating patients, exactly like a doctor would. All work is under the general or direct supervision of the supervising physician. That said, a PA must have a doctor "oversee" the care given by a PA. I see a 100-125 patients a week myself independently and occasionally I need to have my supervising doctor help with the care of the patient. Rules governing the duties that a PA can do are generally dictated on a state to state basis. PA's order tests, physical therapy, durable medical goods, home health, medication, and fitness for duty or activity restrictions. Most PA's will have a master's degree and there are many PA schools in the USA. The length of time it takes is usually 24 months. There will be several prerequisites to qualify for the program such as many biology courses and chemistry courses as well. A requirement that ALL medical schools should have is a requirement that the applicant have over 1000 hours of direct patient care experience. This can be obtained by being a technician in the ER or becoming an EMT or helping out in the hospital or clinic in other ways, but make sure you are somehow involved in the direct care of patients. It is important to think about not only about earning potential, but also how you want your days to be spent. In a clinic seeing patients all day, in the operating room for many hours, trying to get along with all the other support staff, or quite often, a little of it all. On the other hand, being a pharmacist will "look" different than being a PA. A new grad can expect a beginning salary of 76,232 based on a survey of new grads from 2007; whereas the average salary for all PA's reported a salary of $89,987. After a few years, a PA will make 100k fairly quickly. PA's that work in surgical sub-specialties will earn more than other primary care positions. However, a surgical PA often is on-call and the hours can exceed 50-60 a week. One extremely important point is that being a PA means that you will need to find a doctor that you can get along with. Like a marriage, you will need to get along with each other, and a sense of mutual trust is vitally important. Personality issues, like anywhere, can influence your enjoyment of your job in a huge way. It is important to think about not only about earning potential, but also how you want your days to be spent. In a clinic seeing patients all day, in the operating room for many hours, trying to get along with all the other support staff, or quite often, a little of it all. On the other hand, being a pharmacist will "look" different than being a PA. A PA must maintain his license by earning 100 hours of continuing medical education credits every two years, and every six years re certifying by taking a test. It is true that it is possible to lose one's medical license by failing the test, but that is very rare. I briefly looked up info for pharmacist pay, etc. On Payscale.com, new grads will expect a salary of 72,500-99,000. I'm not certain why the large spread.. I hope you find this information helpful.
