I am a concerned citizen that is posting information about a corrupt doctor who misdiagnosed me at Research Medical Center in Kansas City, Missouri. People need to stand up against corruption especially in the health fields. The motivation is to report on corrupt, crooked doctors that defraud patients and insurance companies and to shed a light on corrupt doctors. As time goes on that people in positions of power seem to be able to get away with all kinds of corruption and it just seems to get more outrageous. The agencies and entities that are responsible for overseeing behavior like this didn't work in my case.
This story is about a crooked doctor I came across in 2004. It is about Rebecca Burfeind. She should not be a doctor. She has no integrity. Burfeind is a liar and endangers people's lives by the fact that she was allowed and is allowed to be licensed as a doctor. Burfeind lied to me about the capacity she has as a doctor and advised me that she is not fully licensed in order to withold proper medical treatment. I was unaware what a pain clinic doctor can and cannot do as I have never been to one before June 2004.
Dr.Burfeind actively discriminates against patients by the type of insurance they may or may not have. Patients that have similar medical conditions to mine would receive more indepth medical treatment because they have more financial resources and better insurance. I found this out from staff after being seriously assualted by staff at Research Medical Center where this doctor practices.
This story is inspired by the fact that as an ordinary tax paying individual and military veteran, I was unable to have anyone address serious legitimate concerns about Dr. Rebecca Burfeind, Dr. Donal Ables and Research Medical Center. These concerns are related to an incident where I was severely beaten by security guards and off duty police on June 2004 at Research Medical Center. The injuries relating to the assault are directly related to behavior and mistakes by Dr. Burfeind. I feel posting on the internet is the only avenue for me as the agencies that look into things like this have turned a blind eye.
I filed a complaint with the Board of Healing Arts in Missouri back in 2004 for the incident at Research Medical Center where I was purpously and/or negligently misdiagnosed because Dr.Burfeind did not want to render adequate and prudent medical treatment. I have been diagnosed by other doctors other than Research Medical Center and Dr.Burfeind with pinched nerves in my neck due to ruptured disks.
Based on Burfeind's negligent behavior and mistakes in diagnosis in June 2004 at Research Medical Center, Burfeind advised security guards that I was trespassing on hospital grounds after I showed up at the hospital after being advised by Burfeind to do so. Dr.Burfeind and a Dr.Ables advised the Kansas City Police that I carried a gun into the hospital and stole drugs from the hospital on June 2004.
Burfeind treated me three times before this June 2004 incident. I was an established patient. Burfeind advised me to go to the hospital that day. Burfeind lied to me about her capacity as a doctor because she didn't want to provide adequate treatment. Burfeind advised me to go into the emergency room because my condition was outside her area of purview.
Research Medical Center participates in the medicare and medicaid program and they are sanctioned by law to treat any individual that comes into the emergency room.
Burfeind advised security guards that I was tresspassing. I was in a neck collar. I was on my way to the elevator to go to the pain clinic. Five security guards(some being off duty Kansas City Police) grabbed me by the neck and dragged me from the main entrance of the facility and it was caught on several video cameras. They threw me to the ground and started beating me. One guy had me by the neck in a choke hold as they dragged me out. I was then thrown into a Ford Taurus.
While in the back seat, I was threatened by a guard who told me that they are off duty Kansas City Police officers. He told me that they could make me disappear while they drove me around in the Ford Taurus. This guard said he is untouchable and they can do what they want whenever they want to who they want..
When the Kansas City Police arrived, I heard an announcement come across the shoulder radios that the police used. I heard something about me allegedly having a gun and that drugs were either stolen or missing. I had three or four police officers point weapons at me and I was threatened with death that if I moved; my brains would be blow the fuck out. I pardone the language but this is what was said to me. This is what I was told.
The CEO of Research Medical Center apologized to me over the phone. As I mentioned, the whole beating incident was caught on two to three video cameras. The CEO destroyed the video tapes. An ambulance was called and I was taken with injuries to another hospital 20 miles away. This was after I was cited for trespassing on hospital grounds. I had numerous lacerations and deep purple brusing on various parts of my body and a shattered elbow from the beating. In July 2005, I required surgery to remove bone chips from my right elbow. The pain from the bone chips kept me from having full strength and mobility in that arm.
Unfortunately, I was unable to prosecute the guards and police officers for the vicious assualt due to cover up and conspiracy to protect the doctors, hospital and police department from liability. I physically went into three different precincts to file assault charges and was told that if I pursue this that I would be locked up in jail that very second. This was at the 63rd street Kansas Police location in Kansas City. The police officer told me to get the fuck out of the building and not ever come back. The police department deprived me of my right to due process. Internal affairs wouldn't call me back.
To my astonishment, couldn't find a lawyer to help me with a suit on contingency. It was surprising because the whole incident was caught on video. I had injuries; it was clearcut. The malicious prosecution was clearcut as well. The legal maneuvers to have me prosecuted for trespassing was also very apparent. I was barred from filing a suit in the county I lived in. The county told me that I cannot file suit because I am not a lawyer. Under federal law I am allowed to represent myself prose. The CEO destroyed the video. The police department was complicit in conspiracy to cover the whole incident up because some of their own were involved. Research Medical Center maliciously prosecuted me to try to hamper any liability claim.
Furthermore in 2009, a doctor treating me for neck and back pain abrubptly dropped me from their care when Burfeind advised her I was a drug addict and that their was nothing wrong with my health. It is standard procedure to get get medical records from past physicians. I surmise that Burfeind did this becaue she was angry over a 2004 complaint I filed against her, a Dr.Donald Ables and Research Medical Center.
The Board for Healing Arts never provided to me any reports about their findings in an investigation. Recently as of July 2009, the Missouri Board for Healing Arts will not respond to letters, phone calls or emails. I believe the Board for Healing Arts coddles corrupt doctors in my opinion. Afterall, it is made up of doctors.
Burfeind is a very dangerous person and if she makes a mistake in your medical treatment, don't think that she will not do whatever she has to do to cover her tracks, including making medical records disappear or falsifying them. As a U.S. citizen I still have the freedom of speech. I am using this avenue to make my voice known. I feel it would be a disservice to not say anything about individuals like this who have the public trust.
Also, In May 2009, I was refered toa pain clinic at North Kansas City Hospital. Unknown to me was the fact that Dr.Burfeind was on staff there. I had an appointment scheduled and was 15 minutes early. A female nurse came out to me in the waiting area and advised me that I missed my appointment. I knew that this wasn't right because it is still 10 minutes before the time of the scheduled appointment. I advised the nurse of the time and she got beligerent and started getting very rude. The nurse said I would have to go elsewhere. The rude behavior and scenario of being turned away didn't make sense to me at the time. The nurse wouldn't give me any reason as to why. My treating doctor set up the referral.
I called the hospital and found out that Burfeind was on staff there at the clinic. I remebered the 2004 incident and the complaints I filed. A nurse told me that Dr.Burfeind was behind me being denied treatment at North Kansas City Hospital. It made sense to me why I wasn't seen.
Dr.Burfeind has also lied in medical records about true nature of my neck and back. Medical records from Research Medical Center were witheld from me in January 2009. I needed these records in order to defend myself from the malicious prosecution by Research Medical Center. The witholding of the medical records from me was to thwart the justice system and to sway the advantage to the side of the hospital and docotrs and protect them from liability. A lawyer advised me of such strategies. What what Research Medical Center was doing is standard hard ball to avoid any liability. The hospital would claim I was trespassing that day to justify the beating, kidnapping, illegal detainment,slander and malicious prosecution of myself.
In January 2009, the trespassing case was dismissed as no witnesses from the hospital appeared in court. This evil, lying despicable Dr.Burfeind has affected my medical treatment and actively hampered me from obtaining adequate medical treatment around the Kansas City Metro Area. I believe this was retaliation for a legitimate complaint I filed against her in 2004 and others including Research Medical Center.
Dr.Burfeind's behavior affected treatment that I received after knee surgery in June 2009 at North Kansas City Hospital. Burfeind also affected medical treatment I was receiving in 2009 for trigger point injections in my back for ruptured disks. She relayed false information to my treating doctors.
Patients beware of this woman masquerading as a doctor. She is a snake and has no business being a doctor. I think a requirement to be a doctor is that you should have integrity and a compassion towards people. I soley believe that Burfeind's motivation to be a doctor is monetary and that she cares little to none for the patients in her charge.
In addition in May 2009 when I was turned away for a medical appointment at North Kansas City Hospital Pain Clinic; Burfeind defrauded my insurance by billing it hundreds of dollars for treatment that was never rendered to me that day. Dr.Burfeind and Research Medical Center also did this as well in 2004.
The insurance paid for time I was never at the hospital. I am doing this as a service for other people. People should be made aware of individuals like this masquerading as doctors.
