Customer Question
***** phone ****. My...

***** phone ****. My appointment 11/7/2017 - fasting for "blood work" per Office Instructions. He din't schedule my test. I asked "how can you treatment today with 07/13/2017 (old) blood tests = no explanation. He asked for several medical tests of which I provided the results 2 times earlier as well if I was taking Crestor - he never prescrived them in past 2 visits. Absent-minded, poor records, poor cognitive skills, memory loss, admitted "he had a problem with receptionists, blood lav".

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

Florida

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far?

Called Freedom Health & wrote a detail letter explaining the Doctors actions, changed diabetes new doctor & made appointment, scheduled a heart Dr. with referal - got an appointment. New Insurance cards in route.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I called & scheduled blood tests for/prior to 110:45 am doctor visit per doctor office rules, after fasting most of the morning - the computers went off - after listening to other elder blood test complaining patients - I found out +NO BLOOD TEST for me per Dr. rules. I asked - How can Dr treat me today with no current medical readings? Dr. came out front - talked to receptionist - backed out avoiding me. My blood pressure went UP!!!!!!

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
