Yesterday DH and I were in the waiting room of my neuro...his partner, a lout IMO was on the phone with doctors doing his call backs at the receptionist's desk.
He used his patients' full names, discussed their various ailments including bipolar disorder
and discussed how he was "tired" of this patient's hystrionics.
I couldn't believe my ears!! IMO he broke the HIPA law. I am tempted to send him an anonymous letter threatening to report him. I asked my neuro at the end of my appt to discuss this with his partner. He looked at me, rolled his eyes, and said, "If only that would do the trick..."
Isn't this a breach of the HIPA law?
