I want for you to be alert to the fact that some Doctors are totally corrupt when it comes to the Hippocratic Oath to “Do NO Harm” as well as being corrupt in billing practices. I have found from my own experience that Valley ENT allows within their managing partners, at least one who fits this description. His name is Dr. Steven J. Blatchford, an ear,nose and throat practitioner in Tucson. He decided to take revenge or did it for the sheer pleasure of it, when he burned me intentionally with an RF (radio frequency) machine that is seldom used anymore because it is not very effective. He then laughed about what he had just done. I found Valley ENT and their partners continue to use this machine as well as other procedures because they can charge the government and insurance companies more money if these, as well as other procedures are done in the office instead of the hospital setting where it is more safely done and more effectivly done by surgery instead. I learned these things from another ENT Dr. and other medical personnel which know first hand about the unscrupulous practices done by Steven J. Blatchford of Valley ENT PC of Arizona as well as the corporation itself. This corporation has offices in both the greater Phoenix and Tucson areas.
I filed all of the available grievances and complaints with the Arizona Medical Board and my insurance carrier but his lies were accepted and it was basically his lies against my totally accurate account. This kind of thing appears to be the tip of the proverbial iceberg and needs to be exposed about abuse and torture in the medical community. I wanted to file a police report but without any other witnesses, it was useless. I also filed a complaint directly to the Valley ENT corporate headquarters using their online complaint form which said that I should hear from someone in about 2 days. One week later, Dr. Dan Hurley who is a vice president with Valley ENT contacted me and basically said that he believed the lies that Dr.Blatchford told him and that I should understand that these things happen sometimes. TORTURE happens some times in third world countries but it should not! When it happens in America, the Dr.’s protect themselves by lying for one another hoping that when they do something horrible then they can count on the other Dr.’s to do the same for them.
I hope that there will be a responsible person who reads about this and helps me to expose this corruption so that this never happens again to any human being!.
