first of all, he is FULL of crap. you can still go thru w/the grievance even if you are no longer there. HE IS LYING TO YOU about this! If you have to you can go right over his head and keep on w/the complaint. Especially after the way he has ignored you the two or three times you had meetings set up w/him to discuss this and he "forgot" or "didn't show", I am sorry, he was ignoring you!
I think he is trying to suck up to you now because he thinks you won't go thru w/it if he gives you what you want which is an increase. Is he also the doc or just the director? Because if he's not a doc, he has NO business telling you what kind of dosing schedule and increases you will get because that is up to the Dr. And the stuff about not decreasing you because your ekg may show bad readings of the QT interval, that is crap too. Again because first of all, the DOCTOR has to make that determination and I am sorry, with the way clinic are being sued and played out in the media right now about not monitoring the patients, I don't see a doctor in any clinic who will risk taking that kind of a risk of increasing your dose and/or not decreasing your dose when your ekg shows abnormalities with the QT interval. The elevated QT interval is a sign of heart probs and ppl on higher doses of methadone who have elevate QT waves are risking DEATH so again, I just don't think a doctor is going to take a chance that your ekg shows abnormal and they just keep on increasing you. You had to go thru hell trying to get an increase there and now all the sudden you are going to get one all easy peasy??? I doubt it.
I am sorry if I am upsetting you in any way or making you mad but I call it how I see it and I think he is trying to take you for a ride. You are not having issues at your new clinic so why go back to that crap? Those nurses will STILL be there and don't think for a minute they won't start their crap again, especially after all that has gone on and the director being scared of your filing a complaint. I think that is ALL he is worried about.
Of course, like Dee says, it's your decision and you have to make it yourself and be able to live with it so you are the only one that can decide. BUT this man has treated you like crap all this time and you can't tell me for a minute that he didn't know you had transferred before now. If it's true that he can't persue your complaint because you transferred, then why didn't he tell you this before now instead of standing you up all those times and ignoring you?
