DO NOT USE THIS DOCTOR unless you want your personal and private information shouted out in front of all the patients in their front office.
DO NOT USE THIS DOCTOR unless you want to give out all of your personal and private financial information.
Our provider network gave us new insurance cards that do not have our social security numbers on them any more because of identity theft and federal privacy laws. This office will NOT accept you unless you give them your social security numbers, copy of your driver's license, and unless you sign your life away to them in a nasty contract.
I called the State Medical Examiner about this doctor and they said that privacy laws have changed and that when requesting sensitive personal information, the doctor's office must provide a private place to meet with you. This doctor's office does it in front of everyone in their waiting room.
The State Board also said that a doctor's office cannot refuse service because you don't want to give them your social security number. This doctor threw us out because we didn't want to give it to them.
EXTREMELY HORRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE, rudeness, no respect for privacy.
We asked to meet with the doctor and he wasn't even there. There was a nurse practitioner there but they wouldn't let us talk to that person.
I'm not saying that this doctor is engaged in identity theft, but the laws have changed and I don't believe that they are allowed to keep peoples' social security numbers in their files any more.
