Jackson, TN |
Was seen by Dr. Appleton while in Jackson Madison County Hospital. She jumped the gun and went against her colleague’s orders by cancelling tests, iv meds, etc. Would not take any recent medical history in consideration. Dr. Rainey is, and will be staying, my doctor with infectious disease.
