Re: Incorrect invoices by a doctor

Hi,

I had a lengthy consultation with a doctor (a specialist, not a GP) recently. It was very unproductive, no tests were made, no new treatment prescribed. Basically it was 50 minutes of me being distressed and the doctor declaring he can't help me.

Afterwards, I received an invoice which was clearly incorrect: it stated a particular kind of service was performed (it wasn't). I challenged that, and received another invoice, still mentioning another service that didn't take place. I suspect the doctor can't justify charging me for the full 50 minutes without making stuff up.

I wonder where I should report him for falsifying invoices? I thought about my insurance company, but since I'm still below my deductible, I doubt if they'd care. This is not about the money BTW, I just think the doctor shouldn't be able to get away with it.

Thanks,

natcam
You claim it took 50 minutes , why did you just not walk out if it was a waste of time? I guess the bill was about 250, what did you expect it to be?.
