My wife, Miriam Graham, was referred to Mayo in Jacksonville by Dr Carlos Isalas, and endocrinologist with the Medical College of Georgia, Augusta, GA with Cushings Disease he referred her to Mayo. She saw Dr Victor Bernet 1 time. He was provided with all the medical history on her and this condition along with images of a PET, CT and MRI. Dr Bernet ordered additional test which we provided. He called her on the 12th of Jan she returned his call on the 13th of Jan and they made contact at about 2 today. He basically said: "I have 25 years experience and can find nothing wrong with you" in so many words. When various prior blood, urine, etc test indicated Cushing caused by the adrenal glands plus she has all the physical appearance of Cushings. We are baffled.
This is not professional. We request a non biased medical review of her records and the "nothing I can do for you" recommendation that Dr. Bernet gave her today over the phone (We live at Saint Simons Island, GA - about 80 miles away from Mayo).
There is something wrong with Dr. Bernet - to see her only 1 time have ALL the test, records, etc. plus her initial Cushing Disease referral by another endocrinologist plus having all the Cushings physical symptoms. My wife is suffering - she has a real problem and Dr. Bernet offered no solution - just "go away"
