Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

 In October of 2010 I responded to an offer for a free lap band information meeting in Valencia, CA. The doctor Dr. Madan, and his lap band coordinator talked to a group more like a cattle call of over weight people seeking to qualify for a lab band.

They said everything was free for the inital meeting.  We were told to fill out a questionare, then each person went back to wait to see the doctor's answer based on our questionaire. I was immediately told that I had too low of a BMI and did not qualify for the lap band. I cried. He left the room and the lap band coordinator told me that I could "eat up" and return and probably qualify if my BMI had gone up.

I was quickly shuttled out of the room for the rest of the cattle call people. 

I never had the procedure.

Now I have receive in April of 2013 a letter stating that I owe this medical group $ 142. [continued below]....
.....46 for meeting with the doctor. The staff told me the consultation was free, and now they want me to pay for being disqualifed?

I do not want these people, a Debra in billing or Quinn her assistant to ruin my credit. They ought to do the honorable thing and zero out the balence that they think I owe.

Lap band surgerns are millionaires, and the procedure costs a ton.

Why would they go after one little person who never had the procedure, never met with their nutrition people, and was told my consultation would be free?
