Greenville, TX |
I had a consult appointment with PA for sciatica/herniated discs pain ($350 office charge). She basically listen to me explain my issues and order an X-ray (which was very very poor quality). Only to be told I’d need to get an MRI to be able to see anything and then just do physical therapy. This office also require you to give a urine sample for a drug test ($1200 bill) before every talking to you. Which they don’t tell you when you make an appointment. Even if you aren’t there for pain meds.

I'm a nurse who saw the PA who "mostly" listened to what I had one say so not many complaints about him but business practices are terrible!! They forced me to do a drug screen before I saw the doctor even though I was not there to obtain narcotics and then when I refused to pay the bill for the urine screen they sent my case to the collection agency and wouldn't work with me. Not good customer service!!

Good surgeon, but ruthless business practice.  After major surgery, never spoke to the DR. again. they schedule you a PA instead. Tell you follow up visits are included in the surgery cost, then bill your insurance company for the visits, and make you pay deductible. When I refused, they had me reported to the credit bureau. And then there is the $100.00 drug test every visit.  When I refused, they made me sit in the waiting room for almost two hours. Terrible business! Do not recommend.
