Terrible. I found out the results of an MRI done the night before via my current Dr's nurse a couple hours prior to my visit with Dr. Pace. I was told that I had small tumors on my pancreas. I told Dr. Pace that I wanted to be honest and that the main reason for my seeing another Dr. was to get a second opinion as the track record of the entire group of Dr's I had seen previously was very bad. My "current Dr.'s nurse told me that my Dr. stated that she would do a follow up MRI in a year RE: the tumors on my pancreas. I was totally astounded by that. This made me follow through with the decision to see Pace as I have lost 45-50 lbs over the last 8 months. I have a history of breast cancer, cardiac arrest, septic shock, and extremely poor responses from the Dr's who have "treated" me in the past. I was trying to explain this in a matter of fact manner and that I wanted to see a doc from BMC as they are not in the Partners system. Pace's response was that "my husband works at BWH and that's where I trained, etc" She had no empathy whatsoever. I had just been told that I had tumors on my pancreas. She did not want to see me as a patient I'm sure. The whole group of Dr's who never treated me appropriately to begin with have left me in a situation as such that I don't believe any Dr. will ever take me as a Pt and I don't believe that I will ever find a Dr. who remembers the Hippocratic oath who will help me. I don't believe that I will be able to get treated for pancreatic cancer and I think I will most likely die from it. I actually decided to reschedule a chest CT that day in order to see Pace after my own Dr. who I was really trying tom have faith in told me, or rather her nurse told me, that my Dr. said she would follow up with a repeat abdominal MRI in one year. It was then that I decided to see Pace for a second opinion. Maybe they can dig me up in a year after I'm buried and do the MRI. Does Zocdoc know any Dr's who can remember that they are Dr's who have the guts to take me as a Pt, work me up and treat me despite the long hx of total malpractice by a bunch of other drs? Believe me it's been extreme malpractice. They don't want to hear about their own profession. I think it's bizarre that a dr's response to a Pt telling them that they have tumors on their pancreas after they had just been told is to state that their husband works at BWH. Like I care? I was there to get medical help. I will never find a dr to treat me, not after the hx that these other rotten dr's who couldn't seem to remember that they were dr's has been created. They will protect each other before I will get treated. I will never get treated. There are no real stand up dr's left. They forget that they took the Hippocratic oath the minute they have to buy malpractice insurance. I hung in there with those rotten dr's and gave them the benefit of the doubt for a long time and hoped that they would help me. I was stupid. If I actually explained the whole thing whoever is reading this would understand but I don't have the energy for that. I have to try to figure out what to do now to get treated for the tumors on my pancreas since my own dr won't do anything to work me up before I die from pancreatic cancer. I hope Pace gets some of this feedback. She has counter transference issues, and has a long way to go in terms of developing backbone and the courage to treat Pts. I have no more energy to expend on Pace. It did me more harm that good to see her
Thank you so much for making me relax from my concern on finger with warm heart and conversation!
