My rating is a big fat (0). There is a Podiatrist doctor in the Howard U. Hospital who is running scams to get paid of a helpless patient. This doctor was not even supposed to have been my doctor in that clinic. His name is Dr. William H. Rutherford. He was watching me as I was limping on my way to the nurse’s office.
He was not alone in this hallway as I passed him and other nurses and a younger doctor on my way into that office. Once I got in the office this doctor walks away from the others who he was standing next to and heard the nurse ask me some very important questions about my health.
He heard the nurse ask me if I had cancer. I told her that have cancer. She asked me what was my problem. I said to her, I had a problem with my small toe on my left foot. My daughter had stepped on it.
After she got my prognosis and medical history. She gave my chart she cheated on me and went toward the door, I had seen Dr. Rutherford Still standing by the door. He knew what the next step was. The nurse gives the Medical chart to a doctor. This con-artist doctor was not her choice. She walked right past him standing outside the door and gave my new medical chart to a younger doctor.
The nurse placed me in an exam room. The door to the exam room was open. I looked out in the hallway and actually seen Dr. Rutherford asking the younger male doctor could he have me as his patient. He agreed to and gave up my new medical chart to him.
This crooked doctor looked at my 5th to on the side of my left and called it a hammertoe condition. That what he called it. What he had no clue about is that I had seen (2) two other doctors before I had come to that clinic.
I had seen 2 doctors at Providence Hospital in Washington, DC. .This was for the same problem with the left side of my 5th toe. I never knew I had a diagnosis. They were so worried about me having cancer.
Note: I was in my last stage of cancer. The other two doctors saw how sick I was. I was in pain constantly. I tried not to show it. That was eating me alive.
The Howard U. Hospital Podiatrist said that he would like for me to come to his office that same day I had seen him in the Podiatry Clinic. I never even went to see him that day.
I was just too sick to even go to his office like he wanted me to. Also, I forgot to mention this. This doctor hands me inside the clinic scraping the skin from the left side of the toe where my problem was located on the lower left corner of my toenail.
When I finally came to his office. His receptionist told me and he also told me that I had missed my first appointment in that office. I told them both I was to sick to come.
He had already seen how sick I was when he saw me in the clinic at Howard in the first place. He placed me on his book anyway. After that. I got to his office. After I had called and made a new appointment for that clinic. I see this con-artist doctor.
I was placed in this exam room. He comes in and spoke. How are you? I said Ok! Next thing he said to me in that exam room. Isn’t life just a game? I had no clue as to why he said that to me that first time seeing him in his office.
In that office that day he pulled out a scaple from his pocket and looked at my foot and came to it and started removing more skin from the left-hand side of my 5th toe on my left foot. He also had me to return to his office on the 2nd appointment in that office and removed more skin from the side of that same toe.
I said to him you keep on doing this you are going to see my bone. It was so unnecessary for me to be in his office. Note all I had was an ingrown toenail problem in the left-hand corner of my 5th toe on my left foot. He looked right at it. My toes were perfect. I had no such problems with corns on my toes. Whenever I got a corn on my toes I would file them off myself. It would disappear.
He had me in his office many times trying to get me to have the so-called foot surgery that I did not need in his office. He was highly upset with me on the last visit before my foot surgery to have my surgery in his office. He had me placed in every exam room in that office.
He thought he could set the mood to cut the lights off in this exam room to get me to agree to have my foot surgery in that office he calls his office. When I had seen his medical assistant Amber take a blue rag and knock the foot crust dust off that exam chair.
I said to myself, hell no, I am not having my foot surgery in this office. They do not even sterilize the room. I had my surgery in an in an out surgery center in Wash, DC.
This doctor did not even want me to bring in the left foot x-ray that I had received from the 2nd doctor I had seen. I still never knew what my problem was.
The 2nd doctor was an Orthopedic doctor I was seeing for injured from an auto accident. I had the surgery. He didn’t want me to see my post-op X-ray. He ducked me. I found out after my surgery ingrown toenail
