In 2004 I visited Dr. Babinski about four times for a skin condition. His treatment consisted of something I could have purchased at any drug store. I remember paying the 20% Medicare co pays.
Before moving to California later that year, I zeroed out my account and made sure the office had my cell phone number, which is still active. Almost five years later, September 2009, I received a collection notice for $181.00. I had never received such bill, so I contacted Dr. Babinskis' office and billing staff, who refused to provide explanation for the bill. I was never given an explanation of services or why the bill took five years to be sent.
Even though I paid the bill within two days to protect my credit, I was reported to all three credit bureaus anyway.I wrote the Dr. Babinski personally to protest the matter and was ignored. I was never even given the chance to dispute the charges. I have documentation on all of this.
In addition to the billing issues, I found the doctors' conduct and demeanor to be very unprofessional. I also did not appreciate the inappropriate ""hugs"" at the end of each office visit.
I rated this doctor one star because less than that was not a choice!
