Knoxville, TN |
Dr. Bernard sees nothing wrong with the fact that staff members post Bible verses in locations that patients can see easily. What about patients who are not Christians--those who practice another religion or those who practice no religion whatsoever? When staff members started attaching little baskets to their workstations that contained pamphlets for their churches, I knew that I had to find another primary care physician. I don't want religion forced upon me when I'm seeking medical care.

Terrible!! My first appointment and my last!! I went for an appt. on 10/18, I had 4pm appt., after he saw me, he asked me to come back the next morning 10/19 for lab work. I went in and also asked the nurse if I could get a flu shot. No problem, I got a bill for a second co-pay. a $35 visit turned into an $80 visit. I called the office and they would not budge on waiving the additonal fees. Beware!!! They never mentioned the second copay I would have to pay for me to come back at the request o
