I have been trying to get ""CARE MEDICAL"" of Athens Ga. to order a new replacement wheelchair for me, and they do nothing, but give me the run around, I have used a wheelchair since 1978 and have spinal cord injury along with degenerative bone disease, I have had 43 bone surgeries, including rotor cuff replacement, 1/4 of my spine removed, toes amputated, pins put in my hand to prevent my hand from becoming ""clubbed"" as my feet were before surgery,and a metal elbow I also have low blood pressure, and low blood sugar, which requires a service dog to watch me, making sure I don't pass out. I see my doctor regularly, and he has filled out the forms required by medicare, who sent me a letter stating I qualified for another chair. But the people that work at ""Care"", don't care.\r
Because I've complained about the attitude from bookkeeping, sales girl, and maintaince (when I needed to buy new tires) ""Care"" has decided to refuse to sell me a new wheelchair. I even offered to get a motorized chair (which I dispized) and that larger sale possability didn't help. I have had 6 manual wheelchairs, and 1 motorized chair. and the one I'm using is almost 20 years old, and I need a new version of the one I am presently using, I live in Senior housing, and in the past have referred many people to ""Care"". BUT no more I'll post this on the bulletin board to let everyone know how they have treated a 77 year old, disabled Native American!!!!!
