Is there any thing i can do to keep me from losing my truck?
3months ago,I took dot physical and due to my blood pressure being high.
The doctor gave me my card that was only good for 3 months,and then i was to return for another physical.
I returned and took my physical and my blood pressure was fine but they sent me to another doctor to be tested for copd, Then to a specialist for x-rays.
That was 8 days ago,due to the holidays and weekend they said i would have to wait until today to get my x-ray results back to give to my DM.
I went to pick up the results and it was just a small piece of paper that noted that i didn't have copd but however they wanted to test for something to do with my breathing?
Also when i went into the doctor to get x-ray results the nurse said that the results have been ready since the day they x-rayed me--8 days ago, but it was already 3pm and the doctor was in such a hurry to leave that he couldn't find a few extra minutes to fax over the results or have his nurse do it.
I'm paying for all this out of my pocket and would think that as with any patient paying or not that we deserve a little bit of respect and consideration that i also have responsibility and a family that depends on me...8 days is along time to be out of work without pay.
And now so i take the results to my DM only to find out that I am on hold till i go back to the doctor. My appointment is not till the 11th of next month,which is 2 weeks away.
So now what? No help or suggestions were offered.
I'm owner operator and have nearly a year left to pay on my truck still. This is my 3rd. year with this company and i was just wondering if anyone out there knows or has any advice that might be of help to me in this situation??
My truck is me and my wife's home,I would hate to think that i might loose it and my wife!
