All good!May 29,2019
*Dr. Wagner was angry I requested pain meds & told me I should not have pain. When I explained I had tramadol at home he wanted to know where I had gotten it. He implied I was a drug seeker and I was very offended by that. He was so involved in the pain med conversation he suggested I just leave the surgical site open. He could not get out of the room fast enough and ultimately told me to leave the site open. He did not offer a plastic surgery referral. I asked his MD helper if I could get a referral which she did. I have since had plastic surgery and the wound was closed with a skin graft. I have worked in the medical field for 39 years. His implication that I was a drug seeker was unacceptable. His comment that I would not have pain was ? stupid ? His failure to refer me a physician who could finish repairing my arm was unacceptable. I felt like I was dismissed and I had to just live with a whole in my arm. The above encounter occurred on 6/5/19 - the f/u appt. #1. For melanoma surgery - very good. For melanoma repair - very poor.May 28,2019
