    Adamson, Dr. Annik

    I called a couple days ago to get an appointment. They were recommended by another doctor at the Health Plex. I was pleased to get an appointment within a couple days.

    This morning I arrived on time at 8:15 AM to do first time new patient paperwork. Receptionist was "business casual" very low cut

    blouse and liked to bend over a lot... I found this to be especially disturbing in a professional environment...... not sure if she was doing it on purpose or if she simply did not know. I have been in business for 30 years and would certainly think twice about what my staff was wearing in front of my customers. Other than that, no issues but wanted to note this for the doctor to take appropriate action at the front desk as this is the "first impression". Also, nobody was at the window when I first came in, but after saying hello, the receptionist came out to greet me. It was not too long, but still, pretty sure they know when somebody walks in.

    Doctor seemed to understand my issues right away, pulled out a rubber band and described how the muscels work under the foot. I thought this was pretty cool and understood what was going on with my feet. Based on this, she made some recommendations verbally and what kind of shoes I should were with better support. Off to X-rays I went.... very old, X-ray machine, even had rust on it... I'm one to favor old school equipment myself as I'm in the broadcasting and public relations industry. Although it was a very old foot X-ray machine, I wondered about how clean it was with my feet on it after wearing paper foot slips. If the machine has rust all over it, what does that say about the rest of the facility. Not as if they are doing surgery there, I don't think so, but this could be a problem. I'm sure the new ones cost a lot and as they say, if it works, keep it... but it really needs to have an SOS pad run over it and clean it up.

    After the X-rays, the doctor (Annik Adamson, D.P.M., FACFA)... I have no idea what all those letters stand for, perhaps everything she is qualified to do or has in the realm of educational background.... took out a packet, like a kit. She explained based on the X-ray what was wrong and explained that this could be corrected with the right support and shoes. She started to suggest custom made shoes and said to do that a casting would likely have to be done..... as she was talking, she was cutting little puffy things and placing them onto a support, arch kind of device to put into my shoes. Based on what she looked at on the X-ray, I'm assuming with her experience, she set me up so that I could start to immediately get on the path to remedy. She ordered a prescription for me of which I was notified by text is ready now at my local CVS.  She placed the custom devices into my shoes, labeled one with an L so that I could use them in other shoes. We talked about a follow up in a couple weeks. Basically, at that point, the session was done.

    As I was on my way out, I was directed to the receptionist for "check out" and to set up a follow up appointment for two weeks. I was told at that time a casting was not usually covered by insurance and was $400.00.. I was surprised as I felt I was being "upsold", and respectfully declined. The receptionist said she would check with our insurance and let me know. Guess this is an elective procedure. When I asked the receptionist what the chances were, based on us having premium insurance with Fairfax Count that it would be covered, she basically shrugged her shoulders and said she really did not know. I do not expect her to know for sure everything or look iinto a crystal ball, but one would think, based on experience, you would have a pretty good idea. After I refused to schedule a casting, I was told I had to pay an additional "$40.00" for the inserts the doctor had put into my shoes... at that time, I raised the flag and said that I as not told about any "up charges" and did not give her permission to place them in my shoes, assuming this was fine. No matter what you think about what I am writing here, upselling and in-boarding is illegal in most states. Virginia is one of them. I could very well have just pulled them out and left - saying thank you, but I did not as I could feel the support under the center of my feet. I started to give the receptionist my credit card but stopped and asked to talk to the doctor. I was expecting to talk to her privately perhaps in an office as I was concerned about the upsell but she wanted to talk to me in front of the receptionist and other people waiting in the lobby with the door wide open... I explained to the doctor that I was aware of these practices as been through it before. I further explained to her that I did not appreciate her just "assuming" $40.00 out the door was fine... it is NOT.  I did a quick calculation and put it to her this way. I have no idea how many people she sees a day, but in this example I presented to her today I calculated that if she had ten (10) persons a day she did this to, that would equal $400.00 per day. On a standard work week of most doctors in the Health Complex, that would be an extra $2,000.00 per week and equal $8,000.00 per month and finally, and additional $96,000.00 per year on the P&L.. that's a lot of money.  I looked up these devices on line that are sold to foot doctors.. they cost the doctors just a couple dollars each.. that's a lot of money on up selling assuming everybody pays them. My point is this, you can not just hook people for additional monies unless the patient or client as agreed. I did not. I ended up paying the. The doctor after I spoke to her, casually walked away, and I am not 100% sure, but it looked as if she rolled her eyes as she turned away from me. Not a thank you.... but prior to her walking away, I told her that I was not trying to be difficult, but did not like their business practices and said to the Doctor that I did not blame her if she did not want to see me in the future.. she said nothing.


    I am sending a copy of this Angies List complaint to the doctor and "will" be filing a formal complaint with the Virginia licensing agencies and other agencies as well....  Did they force people like they did to me to pay this on the way out? How long have they been doing this and thinking it was okay to do it.....  how many people have been victim of this "upsell" without warning or permissions?

    Today, you really have to be careful - Its not a lot of money by any means, but some people may not have an extra $40.00 laying around... that's grocery money the way I see it.. .eggs, bread, milk, and a few other things.......


    To the Doctor. Please refund the $40.00 you charged me. I am sending you these items back to you in the mail. I can order them online for less than $5.00, the same ones you sold to me today, rather forcing me to pay for them.......


    I would not recommend going to this doctor based on this experience and X-ray equipment that has rust all over it. The machine looks like something from the late 60s, perhaps early 70s.

    Wisotsky, Dr. Leonard
    He's very congenial, nice and he does what he can do. He's very available and they're very nice. He has other patients too so you have to wait for some time. He's calm and connected and I like that in a doctor.

    Liu, Dr. Wayne Y
    after waiting about 20 minutes I was seen by Dr. Liu, he examined both my ears and throat and informed me that my right ear was not draining properly, that is often cause by sinus congestion, inflamed plans that did not drain properly after that he proscribed an antibiotic steroid nasal spray and a liquid syrup to stop dry up the sinus tubes, attack the infection and quiet my constant cough due to improper drainage. I was to return in about three weeks as a follow up to check on improvement.

    Redfearn, Dr. Joan
    I found her on the list of my insurance network and selected her because she had an office near my job in DC and also near my home in MD. I went for two to three appointments near my home in MD and never saw the doctor. I only met with a nurse prac. each visit. It is a very busy office with lots of delays and I the clients in the label range from other middle class women to lets just say ghetto young women having unsavory conversations in the waiting area. I overheard one older woman talk about how at one appointment there was a fight between two young women and one exclaimed 'I will fight a pregnant B----". Perhaps this element is why she doesn't come to this location as much. This has unfortunately not been an uncommon experience with other GYN offices I have tried in/around Oxon Hill (haven't had this with other specialities in my neighborhood) so I have resigned myself to going to OB/GYNs/midwives in DC and Alexandria, VA since then.

    Mahmood Mohamadi MD
    He was recommended, by my OB, when we were looking for an internist. I have really enjoyed my interactions with him. He is very cerebral. He makes you feel like everything is going to work out. I have been seeing him for almost ten years. I can not say enough good things about him.

    Daniels, Dr. Henry M
    Waited 3.5 hours past my appointment time, but I was lucky some people were told to come back the next day that were seeing other doctors (at the Oxen Hill location) Waiting room carpet was entirely soaked with water from a leaking roof. Waited a long time in the exam room. Dr said I had dislocated your kneeecap and said he was going to drain fluid. No discussions or explainations. There was no gentleness about the procedure given or time taken to make it less painful ie -a few minutes fro it to get numb . I was told to get an MRI and come back.

    Wisotsky, Dr. Leonard
    The receptionist would politely call out all of the white peoples names, but when it came to me she just bellowed out my first name so I told her my name was Mrs. Allen and to use it. They are not polite or courteous.
