I have filed a complaint with the state concerning Slocum-Dickson Medical Group concerning the way that myself and my family have been treated since we lost our insurance coverage. How can this clinic practically cut us off even though we are willing to cash pay for care,they seem to treat us like they no longer want to treat us now that the no longer have insurance to over bill. I feel this is dead wrong and someone should look into this practice,it is unbelievable that this facility is allowed to do this and it should be questioned and investigated
They have charged my previous insurance for work that was never done in the past and they were very mad when I bought it up to them not only is this wrong but it should also be illegal

They are very rude and condescending.
Does anybody else run into this problem?

They are a private company, they have the right to refuse care to anyone they wish ins. or not, even if you are an established pt. lets face it people are not paying their bills these days, maybe show up with cash in hand and not bill me later, that may change your outcome, lets face it business is business !!

Back when I was in college, I saw both of their dermatologists. One was very nice, the other was a rude obnoxious a@@h**le !! So of course everyone who called Slocum Dickson wanted the nice one, and it was tough to get an appointment in their dermatology dept unless you were willing to see the a@@ ho*e

I assume you are talking about Dr Viccaro, because he is very blunt and doesn't pull punches. He does however, get the job done without any wasted time and foolishness. That is what you went there for in the first place. If you want a shoulder to cry on, see Dr Phill.

It's too bad that anyone loses or has no insurance, but that's life. Go get ins, or get a job with better benefits, etc. Healthcare providers are a business, not a charity. When mt employer changed insurance carriers, I was then an "out of network" patient, still going to the same MD that I had been seeing for years at Slocum. He adjusted my bill so that I only had to pay the "in network" rate that I had always paid. He won my business for life. That can work other places too I'm sure.

I have had a problem with this group as far as payments go. WATCH OUT IF YOU PAY CASH...KEEP YOUR RECEIPT!!! I had a went there a little while ago to be seen, payed my co-payment in full, everything went fine. A month later I get a bill in the mail stating I owe them half of my co-pay. Being it was only 20$-25$ co pay, I kept the receipt for a while, then through the shuffling of papers got lost or thrown out.I called them back asking why I am getting a bill stating I owed half of my co-pay for something I had already paid in full. They asked if I still had the receipt, and said I probably don't, I asked them if they keep receipts they give to patients when payments are made,as they should. There answer was not sure, I will have to get back to you. Either someone made and honest mistake, or someone is taking home little extra's in their paycheck. I just find it odd that they said you only paid half of your co-pay when 99% of the time they need the co-pay at the time of the visit to be seen.

Someone working there who was in charge of fmla and disability forms was found to be pocketing the fees that are charged for the completion of insurance forms.

Regarding the Dermatologists: My very close friend went there to get something checked on the side of her nose and they said it doesn't look like much and to come back in 6 months. Well, she decided to see the 2 female Nurse practioners who specalize soley in dermatology. They took a biopsy and lo & behold it was malignant and she had to go through a series of radiation therapy.If anyone needs to see a dermatologist go see them. I worked @ Slocum and it was said that they booked q 10 min. What does that tell you? This statement is a fact!!
