Patient Comments (1)
in Rockville, MD |
I received open heart surgery a 4 weeks ago, and had 1 office visit with Adventist Medical Group. Had one visit with Dr. Cockrell, who is an excellent doctor. I am on restriction from driving, so after 6 weeks, asked for a temporary disability placard for MVA. I was told by his staff, that there is a $25.00 fee for the doctor to fill in his portion of the form. Medicare does not cover this charge, and feel this is not a reasonable fee. MVA does not charge for this placard.
