There is much that is patently false in this review, but I will address a couple of salient points made: 1. the GPS location issue has plagued our office for years, and I am honestly completely at a loss as to how to correct it. I would say that one ought not depend 100% on a GPS locator for directions anyway, though. We certainly do care very much, and when our new facility is built within about 6 months then there will be no problem with location. I have stopped prescribing chronic opiods (narcotics) for chronic pain, so there are a fair few people who are upset about this and are acting out because of this. I honestly don't know if this person is one of them because this person posted an anonymous review.
Thank you, Carol! The negative replies are usually helpful, but unfortunately they tend to be made due to billing and/or insurance-related issues over which I have very limited control.
I am very sorry that you had a negative experience in our office. As the only Primary Care Physician currently accepting new Medicaid patients in about a 20-mile radius, the best thing that I can do to address your concerns is to continue to see Medicaid patients. As a participating Medicaid provider, we are contractually obligated to collect a $2 copay prior to the office visit and are also contractually obligated to NOT see a Medicaid patient who does not pay that $2 copay. If we violate the terms of our Participation Agreement with Colorado Medicaid, we run the very real risk of having our Medicaid participation cancelled by the state. Then, there would be one less Primary Care Physician's office who accepts new Medicaid patients in Colorado. I would suggest that you address any $2 copay policy-related concerns you may have with Colorado's Department of Health Care Policy & Financing.
Thank you very much for your feedback and your kind words. The recommendation of our services to others is the highest compliment that can be received by a physician and her/his staff! Sincerely, Dr. Meyer
A now former patient of mine with a billing dispute has been trying to tarnish my professional reputation online within the last month. While I do not know whether or not this comment was posted by that individual (hopefully readers and prospective new patients will be appropriately skeptical of vague and general negative comments posted anonymously; I myself always disregard them entirely), at least this comment does not contain overtly incorrect and libelous statements like the last one did and so I will not "flag" it for the webmaster as I have done before (that malicious "review" was taken down within seconds of my flagging it on that website). It would behoove any would-be online defamer to familiarize herself or himself with what constitutes "slander" and "libel" under Colorado law and what the penalties are for them. While it is extremely simple and may feel very gratifying to some [likely very unhappy] people to post "anonymous" negative comments about a licensed professional who is presently and has always been in good standing with all the applicable regulatory agencies and professional boards & societies... while it may seem like it's "not a big deal" it may actually have very serious legal and financial consequences if words aren't chosen carefully. You only remain "anonymous" for as long as the website allows you to be, or for as long as the law allows the website to hide your identity. -Dr. Meyer
