5 Patient One: He doesnt feel he has any problems getting to his appointments. However, he does have to walk three blocks to the bus stop and then take 3 different buses to reach Dr. X office. He has learned that if he was able to obtain a letter from his physician that the Metro would help him with transportation, but he hasnt gotten around to it and just walks to the bus stop. Patient Two: Both of my legs/feet were swollen-short of breath-I have heart trouble-the Dr. sent into the hospital I dont know why they keep swelling Patient Three: The hospital sent me home with 2 liters of fluid on my lungs so, no sooner than I got home, I got short of breath again. The hospital should have taken the fluid off me before sending me home. Patient Four: I did not do what I was supposed to do. When I got back from the hospital the first time, I wasnt eating properly. I wasnt supposed to drink, but I had a beer or two. When I left [the hospital] they told me I had a bad heart. I came home, I was laying around, I wasnt exercising or anything like that, and it just got worse, and I had to go back. ….Shes ( HIS WIFE) got me eating a lot of cerealcorn flakes and Cheerios and stuff like that. I may have a potato salad, corned beef, some pickles… its a variety of things that I eat. Patient Five: Nothing but the cost of the medication. I have obtained some of the medications but not all of them. I have Medicare Part B. I have an issue with the co- payments. I am enrolled in the spend down program with FIA but I dont know the number. Real Patient Stories
