I live in New Mexico, but had the surgery done in California.
Thank you. I can't tell you the whole story, but to sum it up I have gone to a couple of surgeons trying to fix what the previous surgeon has done. It's sad after I told this surgeon what I have gone through, to once again take advantage of me. I didn't want to sign the form preventing me to take him to court if something went wrong. He said I would have to sign it or he wouldn't be able to do the surgery. I don't think it's right that you force someone to sign just so he won't be sued. By signing I could only use an arbitrator. Well thanks for your reply, I really appreciate it.
I was wondering, would it be better if I just sent a complaint to the Medical Board?
I understand I will not get any money, it's not about the money to me. I'm just really tired of getting surgeons who care more about money and less about their patients.
