I came in really late because I was having bad side effects from my new birth control. They made me wait 30 minutes-1 hour yet charged me as a “level 5” emergency.
Physician Christine Lancaster was rude and did not give me any advice. I spoke to her for not even 5 minutes then left because she wanted to run irrelevant tests (probably to make more money) then she decided to charge me $1,500 and coded my case as the highest emergency level 5 when the hospital had me in as level 2. Called the physician’s office and the woman who answered basically admitted to committing fraud and told me “just because you didn’t receive services doesn’t mean you won’t pay for them because the physician planned on giving them to you” and “we trust the doctor’s notes”. The bill was super vague and did not specify anything. Absolutely ridiculous.
I will never go here again. Thanks for taking all my money. Now if I run into a near death emergency, I will have no insurance money left to rely on.
