I went in for a colonoscopy to Springfield Clinic on November 6, 2019. While I was in the recovery room Dr. Paris came in and said I would need to return in 3 to 5 years. Knowing 3 years usually means they found items of concern (large polyps, certain pre-cancerous polyps etc., I was concerned. Later, when the biopsy results came back that 2 small hyperplastic polyps were present, I consulted the guidelines for assessing these results and they came back as if nothing had been found at all and a 10 year follow-up is recommended, not the 3 or 5 years Dr. Paris suggested. I reviewed the bills submitted by Springfield Clinic and Dr. Paris and they were over twice the Bluebook estimates for my zip code. When my insurance would not pay the $4700 bill I was stuck with paying over $1500 out-of-pocket when the Bluebook estimates for a colonoscopy with biopsy should of cost between $2100 and $2500 total. All this can be summed up by one word...GREED. Beware of Dr. Paris.
