in South River, NJ |
In short, I mad an appointment to see the doctor (work related injury), After he examined me, filled out my paperwork for my job and wrote me a doctors note to be out,he wanted guarantee of payment and when I told him my personal insur. wouldn't pay, it had to go thru workers comp, he stormed out of the office raising his voice staying he didn't have time for this crap, find someone else to treat you. I am shocked and dumbfounded by his unprofessionalism, he is on the DOL OWCP physicians list.
