Gonzalez's Heart

So we had another appointment with Chip yesterday. Chip thinks Jaden looks good and will be fine waiting for this next surgery. We still do not have a date a month later, however, it will now not be until November sometime. I will be personally calling to the U of M on Monday to set a few people straight.

I am not going to go into to much detail of our appointment and my confronting Chip of his practice other then I will say he was more unprofessional then any other person or situation I have experienced. Being in the military for 8 years, living in California and having multiple jobs, I have encountered a lot. He basically bad mouthed and cut throat everyone involved to include basically telling me I need to get a new pied. Dr.

Everyone was to blame but himself and he not only talked defensively for 45 min. at about 60 mph but he swore multiple times (not at me) but in his general outbreak. It was so intense in there that you could have started fireworks. Wendy (Sal's sister) went with me and she could not believe the kind of manner he conducted himself. He has some major issues he needs to deal with. He would not listen to me and at one point we were both talking at the same time. I was very calm, professional and said it as it is. I told him that I know many of his patients and they all feel the same and I am speaking for them all. I told him I wanted to communicate this to him so he did not lose his practice and so he could try to change his way of running his clinic. However, he was not interested in a thing I had to say. Wendy thought I was way to nice to him but said even if I had been more aggressive it would not have made a difference.

After this next surgery, I am going to move forward and take some extreme actions against him which is very unfortunate.

So when I have a date, I will let you know. Until then like Kelly posted, we need to keep our energy in a positive manner so we can get through this with another A+. So please keep the prayers coming for a calm heart for us all. We also need to pray for Jaden and our family to stay healthy so that when surgery is scheduled that we do not have to push it back due to illness.

Much love to you all, Steph

Hey Steph,

Sorry things were so heated with Chip! I'm glad Wendy was with you so at least you had some moral support (not to mention someone else to back up your side of things if need be!).

Chip isn't involved in the actual surgery is he?

Oh... gotta' go! The bus from Oak Hill just stopped which means I have to go get the boys from Stride :)

We will be praying for you to all stay healthy and that this surgery would come at the appointed time in spite of all the mistakes of the staff! I totally agree with you that after you get through this next surgery it will be time to move forward with some different actions. I feel for you honey. (((Hugs)))

I bet little Jaden was smileing and saying " Way to go Mom!"

I agree it was good you had Windy for a witness, she may be needed later.

I'm sure you already made a journal of what was said and felt at that meeting. I have found that if I don't make notes I later have forgotten something that at the moment it happen I was sure I would never forget .

I am sure the hosiptal medical board would not like to hear of the unprofessional manner he conducted himself to you and others.
However,some people just do not get it !

It is unfortunate you , Windy and Jaden had to be subjected to his distasteful energy. He must really have some major issues within himself he needs to deal with.
Maybe we should all pray for him to use his negative energy to a more positive effect for his staff and everyone that he meets and cares for.

Take care,

Mattie

Amen to that Mattie. I guess we all should use the power of prayer to move him in a better direction with his practise. He is not a Christian so that would be cool if he got moved from prayer.
