Hay Doctores que aman mas al dinero que a los Humanos.

Digo esto porque en el hospital Kaiser, hay un doctor se supone que es el major espesialista y el unico que tiene el hospital Kaiser en Norte California.

!Si el major pero en sacarle dinero a la jente que tanto trabajo le cuesta  reunir una cantidad grande de dinero por  amor a sus seres queridos ! Y por la salud de ellos para que esten bien, digo esto por la injustisia que se cometio con doña Bertha Figueroa.  

Ella  estaba pagando aseguransa en el hospital Kaiser pensando que su vida estaria asegurada por ellos. Pero lamentable mente su vida estubo en peligrio por Doctores que trabajan ahi, pero el mas peligroso es el doctor Maung Myint.En mayo del 2011 doña Bertha se sentia upoco mal y fue al hospital Kaiser penado en lo major para su salud , al prinsipio todo pasesia normal la mandaron a haserse examen de sangre y de orin.

Segun el doctor  Maung Myint , los rinones de ella estaban mal porque trabajaban el 20 %, estan trabajando muy poco. Y le bamos a haser un somograma para confirmar dijo el Doctor  Maung. Myint . Cuando los resultados ya estaban listos el doctor dijo que pensaba que doña  Bertha tenia piedras en los dos riñones y que nesesitaba que le isieran un tomograma  para estar seguros de que era lo que tenia en los riñones . Despues que  selo isieron, Le dijeron  nesesitaban mas dinero y ella tubo que dor 500 mas y le isieron otro sonograma que duro aproximada mente una hora y  los doctores le dijeron que no pudieron detectar bien  ,pero despues de 2 semanas   el Doctor Maung  Myint  le dijo a doña Bertha que nesesitaba sacar las piedras o quebrarselas sin  siquiera estar seguros de lo que en realidad ella tenia .Programaron la sirujia y despuesde aberle hecho la sirujia  los doctores  simplemente le dijeron fiate  que no encontramos piedras en tus riñones pero te metimos unas mangeritas en los tuvos de tus riñones ya que estan muy serados y por eso vas a tener mucho dolor.

Pero  cuando le isieron la sirujia  le pusieron sondas en las partes intimas y lo peor fue que le sacaron con tanta fuersa que le rompieron una parte del recto y pore so ella  tenia mucho dolor, Estaba siempre acostada  pues no podia estar de pie. Pero el doctor que la opero le dijo que ese dolor se trataba alo major de emorroides y  la mando con un espesialista de emorroidesPero la sorpresa de doña Bertha es que no hera emorroides  el doctor Maung le rompio porque le galo muy fuerte y  por esa rason ella no aguantaba pararse tenia  mucho dolor y por error de ese doctor a doña Bertha  nesesitaba una  hoperasion  en el recto el sirujano del emorroides le dijotengo  que sacar parte del intestino y ponerte pegamento y todo ba ser rapido dijo el espesialista en emorroides  pero nesesitaba 2,000 dolares para pagar la sirujia  y ella ya abia pagado 2,000 por la hoperacion anterior mas 500 que ella ya abia dado era demasiado dinero para ella. Pero  el doctor del emorroides le dijo boy aber si puedo aser algo por usted porque como no fue error sullo ,El error es de ellos dijo ese doctor , hera error de los doctores del hospital Kaiser .y ellos los sabian  por eso el hospital pago  esos 2,000 al rirujano que tubo que aserle la sirujia  que  ella ni lo nesesitaba y yo me inmajino que ni siquiera la primera hoperasion ella nesesitaba solo que ellos querian dinero . querian practicar con ella esa sirujia  por eso que el hospital pago  aseptando  su culpa y antes que lo demandaran major pagaron Pero eso no quita el daño que le hisieron a doña  Berha

Pues ella sufria tenia que aguantar el dolor como de parto todos los dias y las que somos madres sabemos el dolor tan orrible de parto que yo no aguantaria ni un dia y ella tubo que aguantar mas de un mes  el dolor y tambien la precocupasion porque para esta fecha el doctor le dijo que sus riñones estaban trabajando el 15 %.

Y lo major es que fuera a Davis cercas de Sacramento para un trasplante porque sus riñones ya no tenian fuersa para trabajar. Y ella fue a rejistrarse le isieron barias preguntas para saber si calificaba y esto fue como en febrero y para el 15 de abril empesar las dialysis. Quisas en julio  ya hay un donante para el trasplante le dijo el doctor  pero ella tubo una sita en abril y estaba demasiado deprimida su esposo pidio la opinion de otro doctor pero le dijeron que alli en el Kaiser no hay mas espesialistas que el doctor Maung Pero lo raro es que los doctores del trasplante le preguntaban si sus pies estaban inchados en la noche o en la mañana pero eso no pasava, pero la dijeron que si pasaba pero ella no quireia decir.

Ella estaba sustada porque le dijeron que el trasplante no es seguro y que areglara sus cosas, ella  tubo miedo pues  no abia resibido otra  hopinion de otro doctor ,su esposo y su familia desidieron buscar otra opinoion pero no aqui en los Estados Unidos sino en mexico pero ella tenia miedo porque pensaba que aqui estaban los mejores espesialistas pero su esposo lo abia desidido y se fueron a Mexico les explico alos doctores de alla lo que le havian dicho aqui .Luego el doctor en Mexico le dijo no es mi etica poner en mal a ningun doctor pero yo te beo muy bien y no creo que estes enferma dijo y le iso un sonograma  y le dijo yo sabia que no era nada serio tienes un pequeño problema que no es grave es solo una berruga tu no gueles como las personas que bienen grabes su cuerpo se siente a yerro biejopero pero traeere  a dos doctores mas para berificar y nesesito aserte un examen de sangre paraber si no tienes diabetes y despues de eso te boy a dar un tratamiento para tus rinones porque le encontre mucho potasi y ademas tienes un poco de anemia tus globules rojos estan un poco bajos pero bamos a empesar a curarlos  eso es todo tu no nesitas   dialysis dijo el doctor en Mexico ,pero nesesito saber que pastilles estas tomando? Solo bitaminas contesto ella. Las bitanminas no hayudan nada. Ella dijo poreso  yo me siento cansada   y otra cosa que me hisieron los doctores en USA esque mis riñones no trabajaban y para alludarme  me dejaron una bolsa que la andaba en larrodilla con el orin y era demaciado doloroso dijo doña bertha  el Doctor  en mexico dijo lo siento pero ellos son que te enfermaron a si hisieron con una señora ase dos semanas ella le metio una demanda ol hospital kaiser porque higual no tenia nada dijo el Doctor .

Pero dona bertha no iso ninguna demanda porque como  dise Dios en la Biblia  dejame a mi las cosas y yo are la bengansa y ella tubo miedo pero ella cuenta su historia  para  que la gente no balla con ese doctor y ademas los sintomas de los rinones es la inchason en la cara y los pies cansansio mal olor del cuerpo y el horin a fierro oxidado y ella no tuvo nada de esos sintomas.

The hell that Mrs. Bertha Figueroa had to endure in the Health Care system in the United States of AmeriKKKa

There are doctors who love money more than humans.

I say this because in the hospital Kaiser, there is a doctor who supposedly is the best specialist and the only one that Northern California Kaiser has.

Yes! The best, but in making money from people that work so hard to pay for his services.I say this for the injustice that was committed with Mrs. Bertha Figueroa. She was paying insurance for the hospital of Kaiser thinking that her life would be insured by them and her life would “thrive” with them.

But her life was in dangers by the doctors that worked there, but the most dangerous doctor was Maung Myint. In May of 2011 Mrs.Figueroa was feeling a little ill nothing too serious but she felt it was time to get health insurance and she decided to go with Kaiser thinking for the best for her health. In the beginning everything seemed normal they sent her to get a blood and urine test, the norm for a physical.

According to Dr. Myint, her kidneys seemed to not be doing so well and it looked like they were working at 20% of their full potential. They decided to do a sonogram to confirm this. When the results arrived the doctor said that Mrs. Figueroa had kidney stones and since she was very new to her insurance her deductable wouldn’t cover the costs completely. She would need to pay out of pocket which came out to 500 dollars. They did another sonogram on her to confirm his findings. From there the doctors said they couldn’t detect the kidney stones strangely enough, but was sure she had kidney stones.

Two weeks passed by and Dr.Myint told Mrs. Figueroa that she needed to get the kidney stones removed. They performed the procedure, which entitled shoving tubes up her intimate parts. After she awake in much discomfort, the doctor told her some bad news, he did not find any stones in her kidneys. Since he didn’t find any stones without her permission he decided to insert these tubes that led up to her kidneys. These tubes were for air to get in and perhaps help and make her kidneys start working again since they were in a shriveled state. The discomfort she would feel would be normal, and nothing serious.

As the days progressed she did feel discomfort, but she also felt discomfort around her anus. She would later find out this pain was caused by the doctors when they shoved tubes up her intimate parts for the kidney stone procedure. They had taken out the tubes with such force that it caused a tear in her rectum and from that she was in a lot of pain. She would only be in bed since it hurt for her to stand. She went to get this checked, and she was told it was probably just a case of hemorrhoids. She was sent home with a cream to take care of it, but back home she still felt sharp pain. It got to the point that she was afraid to eat since it was so painful to go to the bathroom, and the cream only made it much worse.

She went back and told the doctors she was in too much pain, so they then took her to a hemorrhoids specialists. But to the surprise of Mrs. Bertha it wasn’t hemorrhoids. The Doctor had caused a tear and this was the reason she was in so much pain, not hemorrhoids. For this error of that doctor Mrs. Bertha needed a procedure to immediately fix that. The only problem was that she would need once again to pay out of her pocket and this time it would be 2,000 dollars to pay for this procedure. From having to pay 2,000 for this procedure plus 500 for the past procedure, it was too much money for her. She told them she could not pay the 2,000 dollars. They tried to convince her to het this procedure since she couldn’t be just walking with this tear, but Mrs.Figueroa told them she didn’t have a choice she didn’t have money to pay for it. The doctors than  told her that they would find out a way to pay for it in realist it was something that they had caused and were at fault for. The procedure was done and Kaiser paid.

Even though she went through that she was still in pain from the tubes that were put in that led to her kidneys for air to reach them. Well she suffered and had to withstand the excruciating pain everyday. For about a month she had to withstand that pain, she would tell the doctors she couldn’t handle the pain. Painkillers weren’t even helping with the pain. They decided to finally take them out after a month, but in the end it didn’t help and instead she was told that her kidneys were now working at 15% of their full potential.  

Since her kidneys were getting weaker, she was told to go to Davis close to Sacramento. There she would start the process of dialysis and for a kidney transplant. She went in February to start the process where she was asked many questions to see if she qualified for a kidney. From there she was told that they were to put her on dialysis come April and hopefully by July a donor would come.

She started to get really depressed, and her husband tried to ask for a different opinion from a different doctor. He felt that she couldn’t be as sick as the doctors were claiming she was, she didn’t show it physically or showed any traits of a very ill person. Kaiser told them that there was only one specialist in Kaiser and that was Dr. Myint.

The strange thing from this was that the doctor would ask her if she would feel her feet swell up at night or in the morning, but her feet would never swell up which would confuse her. Especially when the doctor would keep telling her that it was happening but she didn’t want to tell him. Aside from that he would tell her that he was sure that she was feeling exhausted though the day and it hurt her eyes when she watched television. Her responses were always no, because she didn’t feel any symptoms he was telling her. He would say that why was she too afraid to tell him the truth. She knew she didn’t fell those symptoms, but the more the doctor drilled it in her head, she suddenly started to feel like she was feeling like he told her she was supposed to be feeling. 

The doctor told her told her that the kidney transplant surgery had a risk of death and it would be good if she started getting her personal matters resolved if she had any. From moment on she was afraid for her life, and was yet to receive another opinion from a different doctor. Her husband and her family decided to look for another opinion but not in the United States but in Mexico. She was scared to go to Mexico because she thought the US had the best health care. Her husband decided that she would go, and seek an opinion from a doctor down there.

In Mexico she told the doctors what the Kaiser doctors had told her. Upon finishing the doctor told her that from what he could see physically she looked fine and not in need of dialysis let alone a transplant. He than told her it wasn’t ethically proper for him to talk bad about a doctor being a doctor himself, but he had heard too many Kaiser horror stories not to speak his mind. In any case he said to be sure he said they would do tests and see if she did indeed need a kidney transplant.

The results came back and there was something wrong with her kidneys but it wasn’t as serious as it was claimed before. It was a minor kidney condition where treated with medication it would get better, and she didn’t need a kidney transplant. 

Before leaving and having a huge weight lifted off her shoulders and stress turn to relief, the doctor told her of another patient who went through a similar situation. Just like they brainwashed you into feeling very ill, she too went through that. She on the other hand did take legal action with Kaiser from lying to her saying she was very ill.

Mrs. Figueroa is not taking legal action, because like God said in the bible “Leave your problems to me and I will resolve them.” She was very scared for that moment in her life, she has decided to tell her story so that others don’t go through that process of lies and false treatments.

...Mrs. Figueroa has learned a valuable lesson, and has moved to Mexico, where life, and health care, are so much better than in the US.
