My complaint is against Dr. Todd Glassman. I made an appointment to see him as he had been recommended to me by a friend. He calls himself a pain management Dr except he is not licensed in Pain Management which I did not find this out til later. When I made the appointment they quoted me $145.99 for an initial visit. This sounded reasonable so I kept my appt. When I got there I was informed that it would be $245.00 plus lab fees for urine tests plus $75.00 for and exg. Don't ask me why they needed that as I had all my records sent over with a recent ekg report. I unfortunately paid this exorbitant fee but I suffer from such severe pain all over I would have paid $1000.00 if I had that much just to get rid of it. I have been going to pain management for over 10 years and have been prescribed many different pain medications. I know which work and what doesnt. After arguing with him for 15 minutes he wrote me a prescription for OPana 10mg. It is Morphine Sulfate and 60 milligrams doesnt even work for me. But I took the prescription and got the hell out of there as he was so rude and condesending I could not be in the room with him one more minute. I come to find that over 45 pharmacies I went too Nobody in South Florida carries this medication. They can order it but it is $500.00 dollars. I told him I had no insurance and his doctor visit just about broke me that week. Makes me believe he is getting kick backs from the drug companies which last time I checked it was illegal. I cancelled my credit card but because I actually saw him they would not give me a credit. I made a deal with him that if I brought the Opana prescription back he would give me generic medication that would work and be alot less expensive. When I got there they demanded another $245.00 just to switvch the prescriptions when when I called they said it would be free. Then he decided even if I paid him which I was not going to do he still wouldnt switch the prescription out. This Dr is a crook a liar and a thief. If you have any sense you will not use him as a Doctor. I would hate to see him pull the same thing on someone with documented pain issues.

Two Sides to Every Story

AUTHOR: Michael - (USA)

In relation to the complaint concerning price changing of Dr. Glassman. I believe a patient without insurance has unreasonable expectations if the patient thinks a doctor is going to treat them all inclusive for 145.00. The doctor has to pay an outside lab to analyze the blood work and I don't know any docs that take blood for free? I also think a patient without insurance could be interpreted as a "medicaid" patient, as medicaid prior to Obama Care was the default insurance for individuals without insurance. I can easily see how Dr. Glassman could misunderstand. I also know most people over a vulnerable age are not crystal clear which insurance they have and until you run their social it is anyone's guess. Finally a patient seeking "pain medication" for a chronic condition could very well be drug seeking. If the individual making the complain felt it was unreasonable of the doctor to run a blood or urine panel, then I would venture to say the patient may have had unreasonable expectations. It is good practice to check the toxicity levels and blood analysis before ordering pain meds. 

Is it really fare to bash Dr. Glassman given the opinion of a patient who has no realistic concept of what defines good medicine? Is it reasonable to expect a doctor to write a script for Pain Meds and the doc not know if the patient is an addict or what other dependency is in their blood stream? Is it fare to harm someone's reputation because either party may have misunderstood the questions? I believe that it is the patients responsibility to ask questions about additional fees. Going to see a doctor to evaluate a common flu or asking for a narcotic are entirely diferent.
