Cycler isnt that pretty much par for the course though with workers comp doctors? I am going through what I feel is medical neglect with doctors only looking at a portion of the issue from the very first doctor I saw. Their reply when I mention the other issues "They only approved the right shoulder"

Taken at face value; ie, the limited info available, the DR has over-reached his authority on the matter and is acting against the best interests of his patient.
I do agree with the opinion that Cycler has offer you in getting a 2nd opinion. Now as for taking the drastic measures of threatening your doctor, I don't exactly agree with that. Cycler is not your doctor and I am sorry to say but I do not believe in people on this forum giving people advice such as what he has given you. In my opinion if you take the drastic advice as per threatening suing your doctor and if you sign off stating you are aware of the risk you are taking in doing this against medical advice. You could be opening a larger can of worms that what you might be asking for (AMA). Although, I would get a 2nd opinion. That is always a good idea. Wishing you the best of luck and welcome to the forum. Take care!
Sorry, but I have to disagree with some of the advice you have given this individual. I feel it is a bit drastic without you knowing the entire situation or actually knowing and seeing what their own doctor is seeing with this persons injury. Yes, I realize it is only a thumb but any part of the body could be a concern depending on the entire situation which none of us on this forum actually are aware of. Hope you don't take this in a personal manner.
