Dr. Christopher Holden saw my sister in the hospital on May of 2018. My sister has a fractured hip in three places.
There was schedule a two week follow up with Dr. Holden for May 21. My sister can’t bear weight on her hip at all.
I personally had made arrangments with Sarasota Health center to provide a stretcher transport to do the xray from their facility which is 2 blocks down the road from where her rehab.
SMH only needed the Doctors order sent over with her primary care transport note to get the xray done.
I spoke to a woman named Nikki twice on Thursday May 17/2018.
Nikki told me that the doctor would not send over the orders because he needed to see her that day!
I told Nikki that for her convience and pain management it would be easier to transport her by stretcher to the local facility and he could get the xrays immediately online and then consult with the Doctor from rehab with the findings.
Nikki stated he needs to see her and that he WOULD NOT SEND THE ORDERS OVER TO SARASOTA MEMORIAL HEALTH SYSTEM.
My sister is in such pain and still not able to use that left hip at all and the Dr. did not care to use a facility so close to her with her pain….HE JUST WANTED THE MONEY OF THE XRAY AND VISIT NO MATTER THE PAIN IT COST HER!
IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR AN ORTHO…..PLEASE KEEP LOOKING DO NOT STOP AT THIS DOCTOR!
ONLY IN IT FOR THE MONEY NOT THE PATIENT.
