Complaint / review text:
I have had foot problems for years and one night at work noticed that my right foot was bothering me. The next morning it was swollen and bruised, so I went to the urgent care to be seen. I registered with my insurance and waited to be seen by a doctor. She asked how I hurt it and I said I didn't know, but that I was in pain the previous night at work and have been from walking around at school. She said she wanted me to re-register as workman's comp!
I work at Walmart and they require drug testing and physical therapy appointments. The drug testing was fine, but I am too busy for physical therapy appointments thank you very much! I then started receiving letters from the workmans comp people that if Walmart chooses to, they can force me to not work and collect benefits at 60-70% of my current income! Who can afford to not earn 100% of their income? I can't!
I have been stressed out about this whole situation ever since it happened on Oct. 4th of this year and the doctor who did this did so uneccesarily, in my opinion. I have health insurance that will pay for this visit, so she should have left well enough alone.
Walmart was great about the whole thing and was working with me to go forward with the claim. There was just one problem - I wasn't interested!!
