I fell and injured my foot/ ankle 4months ago today. Because I don’t have health insurance, I was hesitant to go to the doctor and tried to home-remedy it for a few weeks post injury. After 7wks and it not getting better, I asked for recommendations on Orthopedic Surgeons in Austin, TX. I made an appt. with Dr. Earl Kilbride Jr. He walks in, points to my boot/ crunches and says "Well, that boots' not gonna work for you", asks me what happened and says he is going to go look at the x-rays and leaves the room. My dad demanded we see the doctor again. Dr. Earl Kilbride Jr came back and said "I assumed she was fine because she wasn't wearing her boot. That word ASSUME is one of the most unprofessional words that a medical professional should use. If it weren't for my dad, Dr. Earl J. Kilbride would have allowed me to leave his facility without a proper boot and proper expectation of a plan of action. Who pays a ridiculous medical bill/ uses their insurance funds on doctors who assume???
