Patient Comments (1)
Brooklyn, NY |
My 10 month old was sick so I went to Dr. C (she was my son's pediatrician until I relocated -he's now 3 yrs old). However, when my daughter had a reaction to the prescribed antibiotics instead of having us come in to see her or switch to another prescription she presumed I didn't want to pay the copay and told me to go to an allergist. When I asked her why she informed me that her staff told her I did not pay a copayment 3 yrs ago for my son so she sent me away. SMH -I count that as malpractice
