Lafayette, LA |
I was told today by Stephanie, my wife, that signing my mom up for Dr. Smith was the smartest thing I have ever done. I'm sure she meant in addition to marrying her. We believe in Dr. Smith and her staff!
Lafayette, LA |
She was a great doctor, but then she switched to MDVIP program. She wanted to charge me $2000 per year just for the privilege of being her patient, and not really offering any additional services or improved standard of care. It just goes to show that she is only interested in her bottom dollar and not interested in helping her patients who had come to trust her.
Lafayette, LA |
You may have to pay a thousand dollars, but you have 24hr access to her. She takes up to an hour for visits. If you have questions or concerns, you can just give her a call anyytime of the day or night. It's been a lifesaver to me! I believe it's worth it.
Lafayette, LA |
She wants a thousand dollars before she will agree to even see you. I didn't make the appointment. ...sounds too greedy and not enough of what a doctor should be.
