My child's psychiatrist charged me excessive fees with no details.

Customer Question

My child's psychiatrist charged me excessive fees with no details. He also charged me for emailing me requesting appts and for appts my son's mother attended alone and excessive call she made to the dr (my son's mother and I have been divorced for 9 years and I am remarried). My son's mother has made up several lies and I never agreed for her to see the dr alone (let alone pay for the visits). To the tune of 800.00 plus a session. Mind you, this is for my sons medication management (which us up to 150mg of medadate with 5 mg of abilify and guaficine). I feel my son who his mother claims has adhd (though I never saw signs when he was younger--now 14). His mother claims our son has had adhd since 2, but his mother is a dr shopping taking both our sons to over 50 drs, on over 40 medications and at the er or hospital at leave a couple times a year. The dr refuses to provide me with a signed copy if his policies, any additional details from the bills (approx 40k in one year) and my sons megical records without a court order. What can I do? When I suggested a second option for treatment due to the high price and meds he said he would have to remove himself from treatment unless I agreed to everything he said for my sons treatment. What can I do?

ElaineAtlanta, GA

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.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
