Patient Comments (2)
Poughkeepsie, NY |
Charged my insurance using more expensive new patient code. Been there every year for 5 years. Definition of new is a patient not seen in last 3 yrs. Return "checkups" brief and numerous. Continued to have vision problems, so changed to another doctor who did tests I'd never had before and discovered an underlying retinal condition I had not been advised of by Dr C. Observation: waiting room always filled with older people who staff schedule for a return visit at checkout.
