I had a very weird experience this week, which has left me perplexed. I went to a medical office where 5 doctors practice together, one of whom is a D.O. I went for a routine booster shot, and while there one of the M.D. docs stopped in to talk. I asked him about making an appointment to see his D.O. partner, and specifically requested OMM for my aching shoulder. It sometimes gets aggravated when I work out, and I have had OMM before and it did give me some relief. Anyway, this doc told me that his D.O. partner did not do OMM, and that it wasn't done in their offices. I asked him if that was true even if a patient specifically requested it, and he said yes! Has anyone ever been refused this treatment before? I know that this doc graduated from TCOM, so he was taught how to do it. What do you guys think? It's not as if I was a drug seeker looking for controlled substances! I can't imagine that it would be unusual for a person to ask for OMM for a sports related injury either. Should the D.O. refuse to give this treatment based on what would have to be his personal opinion even when a patient makes a reasonable request for it?
