I was referred to Dr. Palmer from another optim office. I drove 2 hours to get there, fired out paperwork, got xrays which made the pain in my knee incredibly worse with all the positioning only to be told that he wouldn't accept my insurance. I was told "you can pay $350 or find another doctor" so now I went from fixing to get surgery to fix my knee to having to search for another doctor and start all over. According to the Secretary at optim they are supposed to check insurance when the appt is scheduled not after they've started doing things.
