My husband sees a pain management doctor. This dr. Didn't bill us (due to his own negligence) for the first 13 months that he was a patient there. Suddenly, we receive a $250 bill (all past due) with demand for immediate payment. Bill only showed amt due. No itemization. When I requested itemization info I was provided was blatantly wrong, yet it was put on me to prove. When I would prove, would be given "New balance" showing no changes despite amts owned being removed. Now doctor is refusing service unless a specific amount is paid toward "Past due" at each visit!!! This is highway robbery!!! "Billing dept" is internal, and if you even start to loose patience with them, they claim "Abuse" and have you removed permanently from the dr.'s care!!!!! Wth???
