UT Dallas Career Center - Dr. Gerald Matchett, MD
Update by user May 23, 2013
We had a board meeting at Parkland 2 days ago.I told them word for word exactly what Mr.
Matchett said. We even had the original paper from parkland from when matchett gave my wife the number to the D.E.A. office.
We called the CEO of Parkland to arrange this meeting in case anyone else needs to do this.
Once the Customer care advocates reach a stale mate call the CEO's office and be polite! Remember you get more with sugar. We set down with several doctors 2 of them said Mr. Matchetts notes were very wrong and my wife was wronged by his accusations.
As I write this her pain is so out of control she is in the bathroom and I can hear her throwing up. She has been crying for the past 2 hours. I feel so helpless! At the meeting we showed pictures of my daughters graduation that my wife missed.
we showed pics of my wife with an E.J (External Jugular) I.V. that is the only type of line they can get on her. We had the heads of 6 different areas at the meeting plus 2 medical doctors and they were just in disgust with Mr. Matchett.
Because of his notes my wife is dealing with this bile duct pain with muscle relaxers! I get so mad i have to *** my tongue. I mean where else can people go with no insurance?
I lost everything in the 2008 recession!My god I never thought we would be in this position and certainly never thought a doctor would flat out lie!

I lost my job in 2008 and we were forced to use Parkland's Pain clinic.Mr.
Matchett, I refuse to call him a doctor, came into the room and said your pain is being caused by Hydrocodone. Now my wife was bed ridden and had a benign mass removed from her bile duct which started the pain. She still has not eaten a solid meal in 2 years and survives on ensure. So anyway he said her (3) hydrocodone pain pills a day was causing the pain and then called her the next day and told us the D.E.A.
had her file! I know, first thought is wow more to this story but it's not. We don't drink, NEVER used any drugs, never been arrested, just normal people. So now she is hurting, vomiting, worried and scared.
We both contact the D.E.A. at the number this worthless *** gave us and they said they never heard of my wife! They also explained, it does not work like that. If a specific doctor was being investigated that doctor would be in trouble and unless the patient was stealing prescriptions or something over the top they would not be investigated.
So to anyone using this liar please be careful. My wife was very sick, in a lot of pain and he was cold hearted and out right LIED. He is no longer with Parklands Pain Clinic but now is with UTSW. Not a day goes by that I don't think of this trash for a human being.
He put in her medical record she needed detox! We are having that amended and have 2 other doctors going to bat for us but patients have got to use the internet to let others know about liars and *** with some power trip because they are a doctor! If Matchett reads this I hope you burn in *** for what you put this lady through!
My hatred for you is a perfect hatred because you lied and intentionally hurt my wife.
