Lately, I've noticed that Bob and I are getting rather frosty receptions from a few of Bob's doctors. I mean, we arrive for Bob's appointment and the doc is all business, no small talk, no "how are you today?" just acting creepily business-like... and I think I know why.
Our attorney's office has been, lately, inundated with calls from Bob's doctors, all of them wanting to know how to get The Defense attorneys off their backs. Seems The Defense is peppering their offices with multiple duplicate repeated supoenas for Bob's medical records. Unfortunately, we can't control The Defense, so there's nothing we can do to stop this. Bob's doctors are all now "lawyering up", and thus, not happy to see us arrive in the office. Which concerns me, and makes me wonder, am I going to have to find all new doctors for Bob when this is over? Will the medical care Bob receives suffer from all of this?
Personally, I got a call from the manager of the small medical supply company that fills Bob's monthly condom catheter order. The manager had received his fifth or sixth supoena for same records and he was up to his ears with this....
And remember the acute rehab hospital that Bob and I toured, but I nixed because they only provided group therapy? Well, that hospital has gotten four supoenas and, when told that Bob was never a patient at their facility so there are no records, The Defense threatened to sue them for "withholding information".
Not to mention, countless depositions (including mine) scheduled then canceled at the last minute.
OK, time to cue up the circus music... This is turning into a freak show. And, honest to God, I can't believe it.
