It is very hard to write this response because my family knows Dr Carlos Cardenas for the past 20 plus years. My mother, 70, first came through the doors of the ER on Tuesday May 29th. The ER doctor, was an African American Doctor who has treated my mother before in the past with subpar results. He once treated her a year prior for dehydration and released her within a few hours, only for me to call EMT services a few days later because her condition worsen and she had to be hospitalized.Surprise surprise this same doctor did it again. My mother came in around May 29th for symptoms she was experiencing from an infection. This same ER doctor said she had a slight infection but in his medical opinion didn’t warrant hospitalization and released her 5 hours later. No prescription, nothing. On June 2nd, i get a call from my 15 year old sister saying my mother was vomiting, drenched in sweat and near collapse. I called 911 and EMT’s rushed her to DHR. By the time i made it to the the ER i found a team of nurses and doctors surrounding my mother. Her blood pressure was 60/40 and was told by a different ER doctor that she was experiencing multiple organ dysfunction syndrome due to septic shock and that she may not make it thru the nite. Once nightfall came, my mothers blood pressure dropped to 50/20 and her pacemaker was now pacing her heart and she had to be intubated. A Intensivist and a team of his residency doctors came and spoke with us. Keep in mind, my parents are medical professionals, a Nurse and Pharmacist each who have more than 40 years in their careers. We know the limitations of medicine, patient outcomes and when the writing on the wall tells you what is really coming. She had suffered from sepsis before from this UTI problem shes had. She had been treated successfully by DHR doctors, infectious disease Dr Rosas and Ochoa both good doctors. But i can’t say the same for that ER doctor who for the second time, prematurely discharged my mother. Only to return a few days later on June 2nd, on a Saturday, the day we were suppose to be at our sisters graduation ceremony, our mother was in the ER on a breathing machine and making her way into ICU. After 2 days in ICU my mother was taken off the breathing machine because her condition improved. When my mother came in, her heart was failing, kidney failure and her liver (according to her ammonia and liver enzyme count) were all shutting down or elevated. As she improved, she was moved to a standard hospital room for the next 3 or 4 days before she would be released. Here i had a few more grievances and had i known better i would of petitioned Medicare about it. Because my mothers hospital stay centered around septic shock due to infection, i asked if we could have her infectious disease doctors consult on her treatment. I was turned down by a female resident doctor. The resident doctor claimed that my mother had been treated already and the infection was gone. She claimed that if they called Dr Rosas in for a consult, that they would restart the treatment from scratch. Confused, i tried explaining that Rosas has been my mother's doctor for over a year and to this day currently treats her for chronic UTI. So how could he NOT be involved in her treatment? Me and my father never got a chance to talk to the attending hospitalist, instead we only spoke to that female resident doctor who wouldn’t listen to reason. As a matter a fact the day before her discharge, i ran into Dr Rosas as he exited a patient's room next door from my mothers. As much as i wanted to stop and talk to him, i didn’t. Instead i called his office and set up an appointment which took 3 weeks for them to set up. 3 long weeks to see my mother after discharged for an infection that nearly killed her. For the record, whenever my mom was hospitalized for infection, the attending physician who over saw her care never denied access nor the request to have Dr Rosas or his partner Dr Ochoa to consult.
