Employment law questions? Ask an employment lawyer.
Hello and thank you for entrusting me to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do everything I can to answer your question.
I am very sorry to hear about the way you were treated. Unfortunately, there is no legal remedy for rude or condescending medical professionals. As for the HIPAA violations, you can report those to the Department of Health & Human Services. However, HIPAA does not allow for private causes of action for money damages, so you cannot sue for financial compensation because your HIPAA rights were violated. The DHHS will investigate your complaint and impose penalties against the doctor if they determine a HIPAA violation in fact occurred. You can file a HIPAA complaint here.
I hope that you find this information helpful. Please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any questions or concerns regarding the above and I will be more than happy to assist you further...
Was there anything else I can do for you?
