Should I send written statements to my medical doctor/provider? | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

No. We’ve had clients fax a hand written long note to the doctor explaining that the doctor not understand how the pain of this client was significant, or why the doctor got it wrong in sending the client back to work when they were still hurt, and guess what? Once the doctor/medical provider puts that written fax or letter in your patient chart, it will find its way to the insurance defense attorney months later if the case goes to court. We have even had the injured person’s wife or husband hand right the nasty note that finds its way into the file. What makes your case good or bad? Not doing faxes or hand written notes to your medical provider telling them how they don’t understand your medical condition.
