Ratings for Dr. Dean S. Ricketts
This Doctor is a Quack. After an 1/2 hour so-called examination he determined my work related injuries were not serious enough to limit my working, with modifications due to pain and discomfort. He is a highly paid subcontracted Doctor for L&I to rate each claimant sent to him the lowest injury rating in order for L&I to not have to pay out settlements. My Primary care Doctor has been seeing me for over 1 and 1/2 years and knows of my pain level and limitations due to the injury, and has issued each month modifications to my work duties. Yet after only 1/2 hour with this Doctor he disagrees, he is an idiot!
Avoid Dr Ricketts. He is very deceptive. His only objective is to create lies to deny your medical diagnosis and treatment. He lacks integrity. Make a recording of the meeting to protect yourself. Insist on seeing someone else if insurance companies send you to him. He distorts your medical records to support his unfounded conclusions. Send your complaint to LNI and WA State Department of Health. He shouldn't practice in America due to violation of standard of care and code of ethics.
This doctor is hired to deny injuries and medical treatment. He is very deceptive and awfully manipulative. There is no exam. He concludes all work related injuries are preexisting. His findings are focused on the denial of further medical treatment. He ignores all medical reports and findings. He is prejudice. His goal is destroy injured workers lives to please LNI. He is a big liar and condescending. Avoid seeing him at all cost and write complaint to LNI and WA State Dept of Health. His license should be suspended.
