Dr. Yoon Park at the Vancouver Clinic was a great disappointment. She spent more time typing on her laptop than talking to me, did not look at my medical history form, and left it in the room with me when the appointment was over. I waited for her to come back, and when she didn't I finally stood in the hall asking what I should do next.

Above all, I made the appointment for a physical, as I had not had one in several years. I wanted a physical and asked for one. This is not what I got. Instead I had my knee looked at, which as causing me pain. And an order to go the lab for my blood to be drawn, which I assumed was the start of my 'physical'. Yoon Park wanted all of my previous medical history transferred to her so that she could review it, and that I should come back in two weeks to discuss it. She didn't bother to ask me anything about my history or notice that I didn't complete the intake form. She didn't even look at it.

I wanted a physical. I made the appointment for a physical, and told everyone associated with the visit, the appointment maker on the phone, the receptionist that greeted me for the appointment and the nurse assisting Yoon Park that I was here for a PHYSICAL. After I got the results of the blood work in the mail, I called and asked the nurse if I needed to schedule a follow up apppointment, and I was told that if I wasn't in pain, that I didn't need to return.

Then I got the bill. It turns out that some doctors don't work for patients, or make insurance work for patients. They work for the insurance. I didn't understand why the physical, allowed every year, wasn't covered by my insurance. After several calls (the insurance company can't tell you what you were diagnosed with, and the nurse has to get the Dr's OK to tell you). What I got was an accurate diagnosis (I am overweight), but I already knew that and didn't need to pay for a doctor visit for that. I didn't ask to be told what I already knew. I asked for a general inspection, as it has been several years. I argued the point when I received the bill, as if I had taken my car to a mechanic and asked for a general evaluation and instead just the brakes were inspected, I would not be getting the service requested.

My insurance doesn't cover weight treatment (I didn't ask for weight treatment). But Yoon Park coded the appointment for obesity treatment (which I didn't ask for). I appealed to the Vancouver Clinic billing, stating that all records indicate from the time I made the appointment that I wanted a PHYSICAL. After 2 months I received a letter stating that a Billing Specialist had thoroughly examined the information (but never talked to me about it) and decided that the billing was correct. I received NO WEIGHT MANAGEMENT TREATMENT but got billed for it and now needed to pay for it.

Also, Yoon Park's nurse, that I really liked, threw a far-fetched claim that she herself hadn't been to a doctor since she was 18, which seemed hard to fathom working in a doctors office. When I called to get the results of my injured knee x-ray, I was told I was on the wrong antibiotics and that I didn't have a yeast infection. Which was really good to know, considering that I had NO exam and gave no samples of anything to the doctor, and certainly the lab didn't take any swabs. The nurse had the wrong person, and after a long pause on the phone, she quickly clarified. Good to know that there is no one with a screaming infection in Vancouver being treated with physical therapy.

Frustrated and still without the exam I asked for, I won't be going back to the Vancouver Clinic, and won't be taking any of my children either. The Clinic loses a substantial amount of business when a family of 10 decides to go elsewhere. Of course Yoon Park doesn't know this, because she never read the profile I was asked to fill out nor did she ask me about my medical history.
