Background info on me... I have been to 3 different surgeons, have had numerous surgeries over the past 2.5 years, no one knows why I keep getting recurrent abscesses but I am very scared as to why this is happening as I am healthy otherwise.

I have a surgeon I have been seeing for the past year and a half or so who has performed a fistulotomy on me and numerous drainings (I had previous surgeries with other doctors). I couldn't take it anymore and asked him to refer me to someone else. Dr. Weiss at Cleveland Clinic. I have the beginnings of another one so I figured this was the perfect opportunity.

First of all, over the phone they told me to use enemas before I came in, I found that unusual as none of my other doctors have ever asked them. I told them I could not as I was working and could not do "that" at work. They told me to come in early and do it there. Turned out that I did not need to, thank God I did not follow her instructions.

Next, Dr. Weiss was very rude. Even though I was an hour early he flew in and began talking to me while he was on the computer with his back turned to me. I told him I had an abscess and he immediately told me that I probably had a fistula. I explained to him that I did not as I had my last fistulotomy surgery last year and have had a few abscesses since then and under each examination I did not have a fistula again. I told him I was referred for a 2nd opinion and he said, "Where are your operative reports?" I explained that they were faxed last week. I tried to tell him all of the past things since he didn't have the paperwork in front of him and he acted as if I was annoying him. He seemed angry that I did not have these reports ON me, when I am sure his very disorganized office staff lost them.

He decided to examine me while they found the paperwork. He was very rough with me and hurt me. He couldn't even find the abscess, I had to tell him where it was.

He told me I would need a sonogram, I told him that I already had one (by him...I have been to CC in the past but couldn't remember the name of the Dr who did the sonogram. I figured back then the sonogram doctor was just rude because he was doing something for another Dr...little did I know...). He asked about MRIs and colonoscopies which I've already had done.

They would not find the paperwork, so he told me that he would have to put me under anesthesia and try to find the fistula. I have been under anesthesia so many times and asked if there was something else he could do, like maybe perform a blood test to see if I have a disease or something (I've been reading up on autoimmune diseases and one of the symptoms is infections that do not heal). This was the kicker- he said with an attitude- "What disease do you think you have?" I said I don't know and could only laugh because he is the doctor shouldn't he know that!!!

So he quickly told me he was putting me on antibiotics and flew out of the room before I could say a word. When the nurse brought me the scripts I explained to her that he flew out of the room before I could tell him that since I have been through this (a million times) before that I need prescription pain meds and that yes the pain is not horrible today but it will be unbearable in a couple days and I don't need to waste money going to the ER (today is Thurs so I will be in extreme pain by about Sat or Sun). She said sure and came back in and told me that he said to take Tylenol and if the pain is that bad I should have "the surgery"! What "surgery" he was talking about I have no idea.

I will be calling my original surgeon tomorrow and telling him not to refer anyone else to this horrible man and am waiting for the hospital to get back to me on who I can direct my complaint to but I just wanted to put this out there. DO NOT GO SEE DR ERIC WEISS if you are having ANY rectal problems, even though Cleveland Clinic is supposed to be a very good hospital!!! They obviously are not if they are employing jerks such as these. NOW I have no solution to my problem and don't even have pain meds to get through the hell I am about to go through.
