MY hooman swettte maria has a stpah infection in her thumb that wont go away we had to go to a specialist and she is putting M on a iv drp with antibiotics

we mentione that we own two cats and the dr says " well they are dirty and probaly causing the infection get rid of them "

i thought Maria was going to take a swing at her
When i got her calmed down i asked the DR can yu name me one intance of a cat causing a staph infection?
she couldnt and we both agreed that having cats has no bearing on this
so the dr says maybe you should find another dr well that is a great idea

Poor Maria :grouphug:. :pray: for a quick recovery for her so she doesn't have to endure the iv for too long.


Hmmmmm a doctor that doesn't like to be challenged is a doctor with a narrow mind, in my view. Good going, Jim.

omg, Jim! That doctor shouldn't be practicing... :frustrating: I did like the fact you were in your friend's law office when you got the report about what the doctor told the insurance company, though. :D Did they have the comment withdrawn by the deadline?

I hope Maria recovers soon! :goodvibes: Staph is nothing to mess with! :grouphug:

Miscommunication, my capacious @$$ :frustrated:

Insensitive self-impressed doctor, more like. :rolleyes:

I'm glad the second doctor had a little more empathy!! He sounds like a great guy. :D

I hope Maria kicks the staph soon. :goodvibes:

Everything's been said Jim. Kudos for you and your Maria for speaking up! :thumbs up Idiotic doctors. Just because they have a degree does not mean they were given smart with it.


My doctor can't say anything like that as his wife is involved in rescue. It's great!!
