VANCOUVER, WASHINGTON -- We have had trouble with our former Dr. at Kaiser. He purposely injured my widest shoulder during an exam. Each time he pushed hard on her already injured shoulder. He then grinned after he poked her. Dr. needs relieved of duty. Who can help? I filed formal complaints but Kaiser is covering for him. What can I do?

If this is the case, you should be speaking to an attorney.

Do you have more evidence that this was purposed than the fact the doctor grinned? The fact he grinned alone doesn't imply it was done with ill intent. In the process of fully diagnosing injuries doctors do often manipulate body parts to the point of pain.

If you really want the guy disbarred from practice you will need some good evidence. You reported it - there may be nothing else to do.

Doctor's touch injured parts of patients all the time. You don't even want to know what a doctor did to me this week. It makes touching an injured shoulder look like child's play!

Did the doctor made an evil laughter such as "Muhahaha!" If so, you got a case.

Unless the doctor caused an injury there is nothing you can do. Many times an exam of a problem area by a doctor will result in discomfort so that he/she can determine the proper course of action. And I honestly don't think Kaiser is going to take a complain about the fact the doctor smiled seriously.

Do you mean your 'wife's' shoulder?

I'm confused. Who did the dr "hurt." The OP starts by saying the dr hurt his shoulder, and then says he hurt "her" shoulder. When my feet and my wrist hurt last winter, my dr did some exercises to help the joints. It was very painful, but it ended up helping. Sometimes dr's have to adjust or fix you by hurting you.

YaYa, that's why I asked if he meant 'Wife's' instead of 'widest'.
