DOCTERS YOU LOVE TO HATE; MORE STATE LAWS AS WELL

Well I went to the OB/GYN doctor that I was referred to. First off his waiting room was filled with lots of pregnant women. I noticed the chairs all had stains on them. It was a superficially clean area but dirty below the surface. That should have been the first clue.

The nursing staff gets me in pretty quick. They check my blood pressure, for some unknown reason they check my urine, and they get my weight. I won’t even begin to mention what that was. They sent me back to the waiting area. I sat there for about 45 minutes. I finally get back to a small room. They ask me to remove my cloths waist down. I sit there for another thirty minutes. Second clue, never keep an partially dressed female waiting. As I wait, I notice the equipment. There is a microscope on a stand and of course the lamp. On the counter, is a triangular shaped something that sure as heck isn’t a speculum. At least not one that I have ever seen There are two small lab containers, three cotton swabs, and three other containers. Container one is a clear jar with a blue lid. The other two containers are small glass containers. Remember the specimen jars from your old high school science labs? Yea those. In one of them is a clear yellow liquid. Its label is old and faded. The other container had a black and light tan separated liquid something. Again a faded and old label. Both of these solutions were not sanitary. I picked up the black/tan separated liquid jar. It was crusty around the bottom of the lid. I realize that they are going to use these things on my body. This was the third clue.

The doctor walks in and wants to immediately get to this procedure. I told him hold on. I wasn’t going to go through this procedure again. I have done it several times in the past. Its funny doctors like this quack always tell that it won’t hurt. I wanted so badly tell him off. How would you like it if someone stuck something up your dick and then using the solution that you planned for me to be used on you? I have a funny feeling that jerk would be backpeddling with the quickness. I told him that I wanted a radical hysterectomy. I had read on the Mayo Clinic web site that this is the treatment of cervical cancer if it returns. He proceeds to patronize me with how I didn’t know what I was talking about. That we had to approach this in steps. I said no because I had already been through this. He then threatens to write in my record that I refused treatment. HaHaHa like that is really going to stop me or change my mind. He asks me to go into his office to speak with me. I get dressed and go in there. After waiting another five minutes on this jerk, I left. I didn’t want to go about this in a long drawn out manner. I went and got gas for my truck. I spoke with two women. I got another name. I was also told that this same doctor let a woman miscarry nine times because he refused or didn’t want to acknowledge a simple medication would have solved the problem. I have heard that he is the worst OB/GYN in Wichita Falls. I can’t even begin to imagine the damage he would have done to me. I could see my family doctor taking six months to get me back to where I was when I started this procedure. What is really bad is that my family doctor referred me to him. I can’t even begin to fathom why my doctor didn’t refer me to the Women’s Clinic. My new doctor is right next door to that clinic. Go Figure. Onto the states.

IDAHO

WHO MAY ACCESS INFORMATION;

The adoptee, the birth parents, and adult birth siblings.

ACCESS TO NON INDENTIFYING INFORMATION:

All medical and genetic information is provided to the adoptive parents at the time of the adoption.

MUTUAL ACCESS TO NON IDENTIFYING INFORMATION:

The state registrar of vital statistics shall establish and maintain a confidential list of QUALIFIED adoptees, birth parents or adult siblings who have consented to release of their identifying information. Any consent shall indicate the person’s desired method of notification in the event a match occurs.

A birth parent shall not be matched with an adoptee without the consent of the other parent unless there is only one birth parent listed on the birth certificate
The other birth parent is deceased. The other birth parent is unable to be located by the department of health and welfare or by a licensed adoption agency after a search. (Oh what a crock of baby poop).

ACCESS TO THE ORIGINAL BIRTH CERTIFICATE:

Only by court order and when all parties have consented through the State adoption registry.

IS IT ME? IT SEEMS LIKE STATES LIKE TO PUNISH THOSE WHO SEARCH. AN ADOPTEE SEEMS TO SCREWED EITHER DIRECTION HE/SHE TAKES.

ILLINOIS

WHO MAY ACCESS INFORMATION:

Either birth parent, adoptee, adoptive parents, adult birth siblings (only if the birthparent is deceased)

ACCESS TO NON IDENTIFYING INFORMATION:

The adoptive parents shall receive this information upon the finalization of the adoption. The adoptee shall receive the information upon request.

MUTUAL ACCESS TO IDENTIFYING INFORMATION:

All parties must consent to release of indentifying information. All parties must be on the registry. For adoptions finalized after 1-1-2000 a copy of the birth certificate is provided through the adoption registry. All adoptions finalized prior to this must petition the court with proof of registration on the registry for the appointment of a confidential intermediary.

ACCESS TO ORIGINAL BIRTH CERTIFICATE:

For adoption finalized before 1-1-2000 a copy of the original birth certificate is available only upon a court order.

For adoptions finalized after 1-1-2000 a copy of the original birth certificate is provided through the adoption registry.

WHERE THE INFORMATION IS LOCATED:

Illinois Adoption Registry, Illinois Department of Public Health.

FINAL NOTE: Who decides which adoptee is more deserving of their original birth certificate? Here the older ones are discriminated against. What I don’t understand is older adoptees have maturity backing them up while the younger adoptees get the information. Explain that one to me because I don’t understand it. I guess its because we are the nasty little secrets of yesteryear. All adoptees age 18 and over deserve their original birth certificates. It is not up to the states to decide who is worthy or who is not.

    Good for you, following your gut reaction probably saved your life (!). I made sure I got female ob/gyns after the slew of self-serving, condescending, clueless male physicians my mother took me to. She worshipped them like gods.

    Great description of that quack’s exmination room. I felt kinda icky while I read it, like I was there with you.
