    They are worse than organized crime. I had $11,000 worth of diagnostic testing done. Of that $11,000 the insurance company told them that they were a bunch of da*n crooks and would only authorize $3,000 of the charges to be covered. They wrote off $8,000 of an $11,000 bill. If you don't have insurance to protect you from the hospital they are going to try to charge you the $11,000. The first thing they do is to have me sign a paper that says I will pay whatever the insurance does not pay. They put an IV in my arm. I said it hurt and told them it was pushed in too far and felt like it was coming out the other side. They said it was done right. My arm was going numb and I could not bend my elbow. They told me they would redo it and when they did another nurse discovered the needle was pushed in too far. The pain stopped as soon as she moved it. Those people are incompetent. They are uncaring and they are crooks.

    Eight days after a laparoscopic gastric bypass, my inner incision ruptured and I had an emergent open abdominal repair to stop me from bleeding to death.  After surgery, I was kept in ICU on a ventilator overnight.  The ICU nurse let my central external jugular intravenous line fall out of my neck; she was fired that week.  After numerous attempts, a peripheal IV access could not be obtained and Dr Givens, who was on call for Dr. Strickland, did not come in and re-insert the IV into a larger vein, leaving me in pain and without adequate hydration as I was limited to two ounces of water an hour.  Post-operatively, I developed extensive scar tissue right down the middle of my abdomen.  I complained about my inability to lean forward due to the pain from the scar tissue (adhesions) in my abdomen on numerous office visits over a period of two months.  Dr. Strickland never laid a hand on me to assess my concerns.  On my last office visit with Dr. Strickland, he recommended I see a psychiatrist because he felt I was scared to return to my job as a critical care nurse at a different hospital than Lexington Medical Center.  I was so astounded by his plan of care that I went to my primary care provider, who prescribed physical therapy for deep scar massage.  Within six weeks of therapy twice a week, I could touch my toes and returned to work just fine without pain.  To this day, I still have significant adhesions in my abdomen, which are easily felt by anyone, not just medical professionals.  While I do not blame Dr. Strickland for my inner incision rupturing to begin with, I do blame him for his horrific, lackadaisical approach to my concerns, his failure to assess and evaluate my abdomen for himself to feel the scar tissue, and his stupidity for his referral to a psychiatrist and not a physical therapist for deep scar massage therapy.  
    In my pre-operative evaluation, I stressed to Dr. Strickland my tendency to develop serious and significant internal scarring, including my past medical history of having to undergo a total hysterectomy in my early 20's related to internal scars.  He assured me he was aware of my history and I had nothing to worry about, since I barely met the weight criteria to have the surgery in the first place.  Again, I do not blame Dr. Strickland for my incision rupturing, but his care afterward was completely inappropriate.

    I have been Dr. Garde's patient for several years. I have always had positive experiences working with Dr. Garde and his nurse.
