Bad doctors

Dear Editor: Last week I received a letter form my HMO showing the charges that were sent to them for my office visit to the doctor. I was surprised of the fees they were charging the HMO.

I made an appointment to see a doctor and received an appointment after a month. Waited in the lobby for a good 45 minutes to see the doctor. Went inside the waiting room for another 20 minutes – total time spent waiting for the doctor: one hour.

Doctor arrived and I told him I had severe abdominal pains and cramps. He told me I had stress and should get better in a day or two.

My total time with this doctor was less than four minutes and he billed my HMO for $165. He did no diagnosis or nothing.

We should fire these doctors that just want to make money and not abide by the oath they take when they become doctors.
