It's all about the money for this guy!
Dr. Slutzker is what is wrong with Healthcare in America today!!! He was recommended by my PCP for injuries I sustained in a car accident. When I scheduled an appointment I was told by his staff that he was one of the best in the area and he was booked for the next 2 & 1/2 weeks. I was concerned about the long wait because of the pain I was in but his secretary convinced me I would have this long of a wait with any quality specialist. So I booked the appointment but brought up my Cigna PPo insurance because I recently got stuck with an Out-of -Network expense. They told me they would check my insurance as soon as we got off the phone and call me back if there was an issue, if not they would see me on my scheduled appointment. Today I get a call, two days before my appt, to say they are out of network and were canceling my appointment. When I complained Dr Slutzker with considerable attitude gets on the phone and says his girls were busy and this happens, sorry. No mention of any remedy. I guess they were too busy for two weeks to care. I know if my company screwed up with a client or someone I was considering a new client we would have done something to remedy the situation. My insurance covered 50% and he could have offered to waive the other 50% because of their error or at least reduce it so I could keep my appointment. Now I have to go through the whole process again, all the while being injured. Thanks Dr. Slutzker, now you can fill the spot with someone with full insurance so you can go by that third summer home!!! Keep in mind its all about who can pay with this Dr.
