Patient Comments (1)
Newton Center |
After 2 visits to Newton Wellesley Hospital emergency, I was referred to this office. I called to make appt. Appt was made for 3 weeks out. Just as I was thanking receptionist, she chimed in to tell me the office did not accept my insurance. I replied I would pay cash. Receptionist told me she now couldn't book appointment. She said she was sorry and we hung up. I can't help but realize this is why health care is so poor and unavailable to those in need. Greedy Dr's like this should feel shame.
