enrolled in the Kaiser senior Advantage (HMO) Medicare Plan with my
Medicare in 2009 after I noticed an advertisement on the Internet that
glamorized Kaiser and made the Kaiser Medicare Plan appear to offer the
best medical treatment and the most medical treatment of the Medicare
plans available in 2009.
My story about Kaiser Medical abuse and Death Panels actually
began many years ago when a doctor in Napa California told me
I had been exposed to a potentially fatal, when not properly treated,
liver virus the U.S. Department of Health and Human
Services (HHS) , estimates that 3.2 million other people in the United
States are also infected with; the virus (chronic hepatitis C
infection), and most people don't feel ill or know they are infected,
according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The
HHS and CDC also estimate that there are approximately 17,000
new hepatitis C cases each year in the U.S., many of which go
I enrolled in the Kaiser Senior Advantage Medicare Plan with the
written understanding that Kaiser would use my Medicare to provide and
pay for proper and meaningful medical treatment and medicine to treat
the potentially deadly liver virus I am infected with and to provide
and pay for proper and meaningful medical treatment and medicine to
treat any complications I suffer from an old abdominal injury and an
old back injury and spine fracture that took place in 1984 or 1985 at
the same time during the same unfortunate incident that required
immediate surgery. The back injury still causes me severe pain day and
night nearly all the time, primarily because a facility in Napa
California that falsely claims to provide excellent medical treatment
instead intentionally deceived and mislead me and medically abused and
neglected me after I accidentally fell and re-injured and exacerbated
the old spine fracture injury to my back in 2001.
However, the Kaiser liver doctors at the Kaiser Hospital
Gastroenterology Department in Vallejo, California that were assigned
my case when I began asking for medical treatment and medicine in 2009
to treat the chronic liver virus and stop the virus from causing
additional damage to my liver and eventual premature death, did not
provide proper and meaningful medical treatment and medicine for the
chronic liver virus and instead used and abused their medical knowledge
to deceive and mislead me and to avoid providing any proper and
meaningful medical treatment and medicine for the chronic liver virus,
and this intentional fraud and medical neglect enabled the virus to
continue to progress and cause additional liver damage and bring me
closer and to the verge of a premature death.
I complained to the Kaiser Member Services that I learned the Kaiser
liver doctors at the Vallejo Kaiser Facility had been misleading me and
giving me inaccurate information for years to avoid spending any money
to provide proper and meaningful medical treatment and
medicine to treat the liver disease, and I informed
Kaiser the pain in the area of my liver has gotten worse.
I finally moved to Sacramento California to be close to my
relatives and I asked Kaiser to assign a different liver doctor to my
case and a liver doctor at the Morse Ave. Kaiser Facility in Sacramento
named Dr. Mary Pauly was assigned to my case.
My mother went with me to my initial appointment with Dr. Pauly in her
office at the Morse Ave Kaiser Facility in Sacramento. It is
interesting that Dr. Pauly first told my mother and I that
she could easily treat the virus without difficulty, and Dr. Pauly said
the results of the ultrasound scan of my liver she ordered performed
showed that my liver is doing well and in the third stage of liver
disease and damage out of four stages and then death. .
However, after Dr. Pauly procrastinated for a couple of months ordering
several routine tests, including an EKG and two blood tests,
on separate occasions, the second blood test ordered by Dr. Pauly’s
R.N., Gayle Witt, California License Number: 385474, that required the
Phlebotomist to take 14 tubes or vials of blood from me.
The results of the blood test that was recently taken at the Kaiser
West Point facility in Sacramento that consisted of the Phlebotomist
drawing 14 vials or tubes of blood from me claim that my ALT and AST
liver enzymes are currently within normal limits at 24, after years of
additional liver damage because Dr. Cuff and Dr. Talley at the
Gastroenterology Department in Kaiser Hospital in Vallejo California
refused to provide any proper or meaningful medical treatment and
medicine to treat the Hepatitis C virus I am infected with, and
previous blood test results taken since 2009 verify my liver enzymes
were extremely elevated at 61 and 71. These ostensible blood
test results are illogical because and it is ridiculous for Kaiser’s
Dr. Pauly to now claim my liver is currently functioning normally after
many years of additional liver damage and considering the liver virus
does not stop causing more and more liver damage and progressing
towards Cirrhosis, liver cancer, and death unless proper and meaningful
medical treatment and medicine is given to the person with the virus.
That was not and is not the case here.
Dr. Pauly recently changed her story and told me the liver damage the
virus [untreated for years in Vallejo] has caused to my liver
progressed from third stage liver disease and I now have Cirrhosis of
the liver, or end stage liver disease or damage.
I would not be surprised, although very sad, if the virus has actually
progressed into liver cancer and Dr Pauly and Kaiser are not telling
me, to avoid any possible consequences for the injuries they
intentionally caused with their neglect.
I asked Dr. Pauly again a couple days ago when she is going to start
treatment for the liver virus and for the name of the medicine she is
planning to use. Dr. Pauly said she wants to start treatment soon and
she is going to prescribe the new drug named Harvoni, but she claims I
need to take a treadmill test first because, she claims, the
results of the EKG her R.N. GayleWitt ordered revealed an abnormality.
I don’t think Gale Witt is qualified to provide medical
treatment and I have not yet ascertained if an R.N. is legally
permitted to order tests, blood tests and an EKG, for a liver
specialist that claims she is going to start my HCV treatment.
I asked Dr. Pauly for the name of the abnormality she said the EKG her
R.N. ordered revealed and Dr. Pauly ignored my question. I subsequently
asked Dr. Pauly about the alleged EKG abnormality a few times on more
than one occasion and she also ignored the question.
Dr. Pauly called me on the telephone and told me I need to take an
Adenosine Stress Test for my heart that involves injecting a
radioactive chemical called Adenosine into the blood stream that
increases heart rate until the concocted chemical Adenosine wears off.
Adenosine has shown several adverse affects including heart attack and
sudden death. I told Dr. Pauly I had an EKG for something else a while
back and the results are normal and I never had anything wrong with my
heart before I asked for the expensive liver virus treatment.
I explained to Dr. Pauly that the Harvoni product information sheet
does not say anything about the Harvoni adversely affecting the heart.
Dr. Pauly responded and claimed that she is planning to prescribe a
drug with the Harvoni called Ribaviron and Ribaviron causes anemia and
can cause heart attack because a drug called Interferon was given to me
on two occasions years ago and that drug failed to reduce the viral
count of the virus or stop the virus damage. I told Dr. Pauly
the Harvoni product information sheet states Harvoni studies verify
Harvoni treats the virus effectively with the same
effectiveness with or without taking Ribaviron with Harvoni
simultaneously, and whether or not the drug Interferon was
effective against the virus in a case when it was given to a
person years ago. I then asked Dr. Pauly when Interferon was given to
me and she said in 2010 and in 2002. I responded that I did not enroll
with Kaiser until 2009. Dr. Pauly apparently slipped and inadvertently
divulged to me that a facility I never wanted to release embarrassing
information from and never signed a release of information for Kaiser
to obtain information from, released personal and private information
about me to Kaiser that I did not want released.
I explained to Dr. Pauly that years go a Dr. Robert B. Talley at the
Kaiser Facility in Vallejo prescribed an HCV drug called Interferon,
but a couple weeks later Talley discontinued the drug and said the drug
Interferon is ineffective, but I thought it a waste of time to mention
to Kaiser Dr. Pauly that Kaiser and some other liver doctors at other
medical facilities prescribe expensive drug treatments to patients only
to give the appearance of benevolence and then quickly discontinue the
drug without giving the drug time to reach effectiveness in order to
Maximize Profit for Kaiser, and the Kaiser or other doctor involved.
I telephoned Kaiser Member Services and told them that I do not want to
deal with Dr. Pauly again because she frequently changes stories and
changes her diagnosis and Dr. Pauly should not prescribe medicines,
tests, and treatments for conditions that are not her purview and that
I am not afflicted with. Dr. Pauly telephoned me a little while later
and began her salesmanship and told me I would have to ask my primary
care doctor about a heart test because she is liver doctor.
I told Dr. Pauly that I intend to pursue getting a different liver
doctor assigned to my case that will just prescribe the Harvoni without
all the other stuff, and she tried to telephone me but I did not answer
I previously informed Kaiser that the radioactive liquid disagrees with
me and makes me feel ill.
I received some telephone calls the next day after I told Dr. Pauly I
intend to pursue getting a different liver doctor assigned to my case
that will just prescribe the Harvoni without all the other
stuff, and the telephone number of the caller on my screen
was a Kaiser number, and I did not answer I checked my
voicemail after 5:00 that evening and there were three voicemails from
Kaiser. The first voice mail stated it is an urgent call for me
from Kaiser Radiology , even though I had rejected the
appointment Dr. Pauly scheduled there for me against my will to have a
heart stress test the day before. The second voice mail stated that it
is an urgent call for me from Kaiser, and a third voice mail
stated the call is for me from Kaiser Member Services about
the complaint I made about Dr. Pauly on December 10, 2014, and I asked
that a new liver doctor be assigned to my case to treat me because Dr.
Pauly does not want me to ask her any questions, she does not give me
information unless I complain, Dr. Pauly does not want me to be a part
of my treatment, Dr. Pauly does not want me to see any
specialists, she makes determinations and orders tests that are out of
her purview, she changes her stories from day to day, and Dr.
Pauly inadvertently told me Kaiser obtained personal and confidential
information about me from another facility I did not release in
violation of the HIPAA Medical Privacy laws.
It appears that Dr. Pauly is using her affiliates to stalk me because
she knows I made a complaint about her and she wants to put the blame
on me, and she knows I asked for her to quit bothering me and
procrastinating and not prescribing the medicine I need, and I need a
liver doctor that stays within his or her purview.
Kaiser liver doctor Mary Pauly wrote in my medical record that liver
transplants (i.e., a life extending treatment) are contraindicated for
older people. It also appears that Kaiser Dr. Mary Pauly and a Kaiser
arbitration lawyer had the vilifying and demeaning statements
put in with the Kaiser medical record on disk to try to prevent me from
getting a second opinion because the Kaiser arbitration lawyer said he
gave me the disk as a courtesy and I think he knew all the rotten stuff
Mary Pauly had written.
