Customer: Hi, my name is Janell. My issue is regarding HIPAA.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: I had an unexpected emergency surgery last year and was out for 3 months. I came back for several weeks. During this time, my doctor took me off of a particular medication and this caused a very bad reaction and I ended up in a coma. I was out for another 3 months. The second time, my employer started pressuring me to return and said if I did not, I would not have a job. So, I returned. Over the past year, I have had to take time off to see my doctor. I was finally written up for too many absences. The HR lady basically spread rumors that she was out to fire me. Everyone that has taken time off for being sick has been fired. Today, I went to the doctor and the doctor's office told me that the HR lady called them to verify my doctor's note. Ok, that's fine. Then, she told them that they "had" to see me in the office before writing me a note and that they could not backdate a note.
