Pulmonology Consultation
Today, Dec 12

Everything was fine until the pulmonary doctor realized the office put they take my insurance on their website. They do not take affinity health plan, somebody in the office accidentally put they do on the website. I took a few test before I seen the doctor with the nurses there. They were nice. The doctor came in and asked a few medical questions and told me the results of the test. He was nice at first. He gave me his opinion about a possible diagnosis and said he wanted to send me for a test. Shortly after that he realized the error they made and told me they did take my insurance. I don't understand how they made that error, they took copies of my insurance card when I first got there. Why didn't anyone notice when I gave them my card before all the test? The doctor seemed upset which is understandable and left me in the room for like 20 minutes. A nurse recognized I was still there after a while called the doctor back in. He restated he didn't take my insurance and said he would give me a prescription for allergy pills. He then sent me to talk to the nurse who set up their account on zocdoc and explain the situation. I got a prescription for allergy pills and was sent on my way without the referral he suggested for the test to confirm his possible diagnosis or a print out of the results of the test I took their to show my primary doctor at our next appointment. I would have gaven the doctor 5 stars but the error was inconveniencing I don't know if I'll have to pay out of pocket now plus I feel like his whole attitude and treatment of me changed once he found out he didn't take my insurance and I left without the referral for the test suggested and a print out of the test result.. I was told that she could call to request results. Long story short I'll probably have to see a new pulmonary doctor and take the tests I took there again. I think everybody involved was affected by the error.
