10 years after surgery...successful surgery..I am suffering with an ulcer so severe that it causes chest pains! I took OFF WORK to see him, and was told AT THE APPT DESK, that the SAME insurance company who paid for surgery..would now NOT COVER ANY SERVICES AT THEIR OFFICE!!!! Not only did I LOSE a day off, because Bridgette didnt think it was worth calling me, but I am ON MY OWN for treatment! SUPER UNHAPPY!
