.

I went into this doctor??s Vein Clinic in Bourbonnais, IL for a complimentary consultation, as in ??free?. As a result my insurance company ended up being billed for $800.00. At no time on the phone prior to the appointment or at the actual appointment did anyone state that I was going to be billed for my consultation. When making my initial phone call for information the appointment was offered as a complimentary consultation. At the consultation I was never asked for a co-pay. The receptionist asked for my insurance information to see if the procedure would be covered if I decided to have surgery at his facility. Unfortunately, six weeks later I discovered I was being billed for $800.00, I called the vein clinic and asked, "Do you offer complimentary consultations?", and the answer was "Yes. You will meet with the surgeon, but if he does any tests you will be charged.? I then informed the receptionist who I was and that I had been in for a "free" consultation and no one informed I was going to be charged anything for my visit. Again, at the appointment they did not ask for my co-pay or indicate I would be charged for this visit. I'm not out any money, my insurance paid for it, but this is a really sleazy way to run a practice. If the doctor was an ethical physician he would have indicated the consultation was over and asked me if I wanted an exam in which I would be charged. I knew when I left the office I would never be back. The physician was very abrupt with his staff, I felt uncomfortabel etc. Something was not quite right. And once I discovered my insurance company had been billed I then knew my feelings were right on the money. Beware!
