"The sign in at
and Rectal clinic is an electronic sign in asking several questions that have already been asked previously, verifying information" that isn't correct and making sure you swipe your credit card so they get their payment. In addition to paying prior to being seen (which is standard for any doctor) they send you a bill 2 to 3 weeks after your appointment and then try to bill you again. Prior to the surgery they make you sign a financial responsibility statement saying that you may be billed for the doctor, the facility, the anesthesiologist and the labs (if performed) separately totaling almost $5,000. I of course, contacted my insurance provider prior to sending the paperwork back and was assured that it would be covered except for my deductible. I also contacted the billing office to ensure that any of the "extras" would be in-network for me and they assured that it would be. At the time of my outpatient surgery I had to pay almost $700 out of pocket just to have the surgery. The surgery went fine and I was sent home with my responsible driver due to having undergone anesthesia. Along with my discharge paperwork I received a pamphlet from their lab services. It is not the same lab services as they assured me were "in network". I did receive several phone calls from the office asking how my recovery was going and urging me to make a follow up appointment but after receiving bills for several hundred dollars, to include bills from
and Rectal because I apparently had not been billed enough I refuse to go back. It has been several months since my surgery and I have received a refund from
and Rectal because they have over charged me and I overpaid. I am still receiving bills from the lab company, who wants their full amount due to being out of network, the anesthesiologist and the facility fee. The doctors are wonderful, the facility nurses were wonderful the billing department and insurance department needs some major help! I have never had any issues with billing like I have had with this company, they are too worried about getting their money that the customer service is virtually non-existent and to tell patients that their insurance will cover the procedures when they obviously don't know what they are taking about is almost as bad as the pain I was experiencing when I originally went to them.

"Had the test and received a call from the nurse to tell me the test was normal. So I asked what I was supposed to do about my problems. I was told since there" was nothing wrong that there wasn't anything to do!!! I protested and she put me on hold then came back and wanted to schedule an appointment. I went to the appointment and the doctor asked me what I expected her to do. I was shocked! I told her that since I was still having the same problems there had to be something to do about how much pain I was in. She told me some self help ways to help me, which I had been doing since it began with a back fusion surgery many months before to no avail. She just shrugged her shoulders. I won't be back and trying to see one of her partners doesn't work.

. My surgery was Monday at 2:30; and I was able to walk around, climb stairs etc. that evening with absolutely no problem. He had said the incision might be 1-1/2 "; but it appears to be tiny and

within my belly button, which I'm really happy about. The stomach block anesthetic did not begin to wear off until around noon on Tuesday. I had read walking and climbing stairs aids in recovery and the block enabled me to do all that when I got home with no or little pain. I took 2 Tylenol at 4 - 6 hour intervals, just to stay on top of any pain. When the block wore off the next day, I took the oxycodone prescribed because I was low on Tylenol. It made me feel nauseous and like passing out; so I laid down the rest of the afternoon until my kids brought me more Tylenol. After taking the Tylenol again I felt much better/more active. The 3rd day after surgery is usually the roughest; but again, with Tylenol, it was just fine. I haven't taken any Tylenol today; I've driven, got groceries yesterday, etc. I took this week off of work because my job is physically demanding and will have the next two weeks off, as well because I was told the recovery would take 2 - 3 weeks. So I am surprised at how great I feel and am able to move around this early in the process. Dr.
New Orleans Colon Specialists Provider Name Locked
is a terrific surgeon.
I gave the office a grade of B because while everyone is really nice, there were scheduling issues: first, my referral from my primary physician got lost over the summer: after contacting me, my case was dropped until I finally called to check on things. Secondly, my surgery time was changed from reporting at 10 and surgery at noon, to a 5:30 a.m. check in with surgery at 7:30 a.m. without notifying me; the check-in nurse happened to mention this to me Friday (could not give specific time; just said it was much earlier than what I had been told in August.) This produced a great deal of anxiety as I made calls Friday afternoon; I just said I wasn't having it that early (elderly father was driving from 45 minutes away etc.) and the office manager was able to change the schedule around, which I greatly appreciated.

He was okay. My regular doctor referred me to him. I told him that I wanted somebody close. So he gave me his name. He is close by. There were no unexpected issues. Everything was good. I had no problem getting an appointment and getting the procedure done. It was quick and fast and I was out of there. I had Medicare and Blue Cross Blue Shield. So they took care of that.

I like UW Physicians because they have consolidated database and they provide all the usually needed medical services. I just had a colonoscopy and they found a problem so they are going to fix it. They are competent and complete. It was a good experience. I have been telling her that if UW has a sports medicine doctor, I'll probably get better service from them because they have a better database than most doctors have.

He is very knowledgeable and I'm impressed with his knowledgeable. He is very good at explaining what needs to be done and why he does things. He answers the questions that you are willing to ask. They have good people on the front end, your appointments are within the twenty minute limit. You are not really waiting, but I'm not the one is too concerned and gets bothered by that. You hear people complaining all the time about, "Oh, I've got to wait an extra hour for my doctor." My doctor is I feel is the kind that if I need that extra they will take it for me too. So I may be waiting for somebody who, yes my doctor is late but he taking his time with somebody that really needs his help that day, and I figure in the long run it all balances out. I get as much time with him as much as anybody else does. You don't feel like you are being shoveled out the door.
