Dishonest billing and a bad bed-side manner. Not recommended...., Apr 22, 2013|
I suggest staying away from Reseda Family Medical Clinic run by Dr. Syrus Feridouni. I've never had such a horrifying experience with a doctor or clinic.
1. They bill $390 for just the doctor's visit not including any treatment. In comparison, West Oaks Urgent Care in Winnetka charges about $65.
2. They overbill for service even if you they say they take your insurance. My insurance refused to pay portions of the bill as they exceeded their contractual agreement.
3. Dr. Feridouni has a cruel bed side manner. When cleaning a wound on my daughter's palm which was extremely painful, he asked her if it hurt and when she said it did, he told her "no it doesn't".
4. I was incorrectly and over-billed for services received and when I attempted to resolve the matter by explaining to Dr. Feridouni (in a calm and polite manner) why the billing was incorrect, he started yelling at me, said if I didn't pay he would send me to collections and hung up the phone
Excellent results for a complex problem! He is great!..., Apr 10, 2013|
I went to Dr. Brooks for a very complex reconstructive problem. He and his staff were so warm and friendly, I felt like I was visiting a friend's house! He listened very carefully to everything I told him and was able to diagnose and propose a plan for my problem. I was so happy with the results and the whole experience! I am now seeing him for some long overdue cosmetic surgery. I'm so excited!
Mislead about insurance co-pay and had to pay $350..., Apr 5, 2013|
Went in for a mole consultation and got what I thought was included in my $40 co-pay (3 mole tests). 4 of their staff (including Dr. Fichtel) told me that the mole tests were "covered by insurance". Ended up getting a $350 bill for the testing. The situation went downhill from there...
Misleading web site. Does not live up to his claims of expertise and pain relief...., Apr 5, 2013|
Dr Filler's website misleads people like me. I thought that his MRN and self proclaimed expertise and skill would help me with my chronic pain problems. So I visited Dr Filler at great expense to get an MRN and a diagnosis. Dr Filler recommended 3 very expensive injections in the front, side and back of my right hip. I did not have hip problems before the injections but immediately had problems and more pain then before. I did not have a bad case of piriformis syndrome before the injections......I do now after the injections. I have much more pain in the area of all 3 injections. The muscles and tendons where he gave the injections are chronically tight. I spoke with Dr Filler about this and he offered to do surgery. I can't help thinking that he knows that his very expensive injections will lead to his even more expensive surgery. Since the injections I have seen many bad reviews about Dr Filler. I think he is a very bad Doctor who takes advantage of people to make money. Beware of this man...his web site is like a spider's web...remember if it is too good to be true..it probably isn't....that was my experience with Dr Filler.
This doctor is not tworthy of my trust and too expensive..., Dec 5, 2012|
I went for a consultation about chin liposuction. At age 60, I knew alot more about dermatological and cosmetic procedures than the 20 yr old consulting with me. The price quote was extremely expensive. I asked the doctor to get in touch with me, but I heard nothing. Therefore, I would never trust this doctor, no matter what the ratings show.
