Poor customer service. No compassion. Not helpful. Rude. No resolutions offered. ..., May 14, 2013
Regarding our appointment this morning of May 14, 2013.
Upon arriving my 94 year old mother was anxious to to avail herself to the services of Dr. Kligman for chronic neck pain.
I had been referred to Dr. Kligman by my personal physician.
Upon presenting my mothers insurance card we were informed that it would not be excepted as Dr. Kligman was not listed as the primary care physician.
I was disappointed to say the least when i was informed of this, as it was never explained to me when the appointment for a new patient was made that Dr. Kligman would have to be elected as her primary care physician in order for her insurance card to be accepted and to be seen by the Dr.
I told the receptionist behind the desk that Healthnet would absolutely pay as I occasionally bring my mother to other primary care physicians that are not listed on her insurance card with out issues from the insurance company (healthnet).
No avenue of resolution was offered by the receptionist, and in my opinion I was treated very rudely and was also told that my attitude was not appreciated, at which time I told her I also did not appreciate her shortness with me either, to which she exclaimed that I came into the office with that attitude, which is NOT the case. I became agitated because after waiting 4 months for this appointment I felt that it was neglgent on their part that we were never informed that in order to be seen we would need to elect Dr. Kligman as our primary care physician prior to our appointment. I believe this was an oversight in their policy and not a fault of the patient.
I asked her to call the insurance company to verify that there would be no problem and was rebuffed, at which time I thought it best that I call the insurance company so their office would be assured of payment.
I made that call, there was no one else in the waiting room at the time and I was not causing a disturbance.
After several minutes on hold with Healthnet I was ab
ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE STAFF. They are not helpful, do not call patients back with results (even after multiple voicemails over a period of WEEKS), keep irregular hours, and are not even at their office when they confirm with you the same day that they will be there! This makes it extremely difficult to coordinate the drop-off of post-surgery samples for their review. Also the information provided in the surgical info handouts given to patients conflict with each other AND with the info given by the doctor and yet again with the info given by the medical assistants. Completely unorganized. If your microscope is broken and you're waiting for a replacement microscope, why not call your patients and let them know so we don't have to call back week after week and leave voicemails? So stupid. Their behavior is inexcusable. Dr. Mullen himself did a decent job but I absolutely WILL NOT be back to see him and will not recommend other people to him. Terrible.
Dr Wilson Cook is Outstanding and I would recommend him to anyone..., Feb 26, 2013
Dr Wilson Cook is probably the best doctor I have ever had. He is intelligent, soft-spoken, considers your input seriously, no matter how amateur and 'hot off the internet' it may be. My health has improved much under his care.
His staff is very professional, but the phone messaging system is annoying, and the facilities are old, with visible mold in some places along the ceiling, which is typical for old buildings.
But his staff is still great, and Dr Cook himself is the best general physician I have ever had.
Been a patient for a very long time..................., Feb 20, 2013
I have been a patient for a very long time with Dr. Conrad. He has been in practice for quite some time and is very knowledgeable. My daughter and her husband were very pleased with their experience. But I knew they would be because I am.
Don't Use Elite Care Emergency or Dr. Jason Gukhool..., Jan 9, 2013
Do not use this clinic! Dr. Gukhool has a major EGO PROBLEM! He is condescending, rude, and arrogant! He refuses to prescribe antibiotic for upper respiratory infection. If you get sicker, the doctor still refuses to prescribe an antibiotic. He does not care what your medical history is. If you start feeling worse, you have to come in pay another $250, and he will still not prescribe an antibiotic. I have never encountered a doctor who is this callous!
