I never have heard of such an thing. We made an appt, to see Dr. BARKER thru a referral. Very first thing we walk into office to see if accepting new patients and they ask us if we are permanent residents, then they preceed to tell us they dont prescribe narcotics. All we wanted to do was make an appointment to see a dr. We are new residents and needed to set up a new physician. Also my husbands big toe has been hurting terribly and we think its arthritis so we wanted to get it checked he could hardly walk at the time we walked into office. So after all that explanation they agreed to set us up an an appointment two days later. We filled out out the paper work they gave us to bring back. Now mind you he decided not to sign to release his medical records right now to this dr. Until we meet him to see if we even like him. Our records would would be coming for our drs in Va once we did that but we had not decided if we even wanted this dr. Yet. So needless to to say they refused to see him now for the the appointment. Wouldn't even talk to him. I have never heard of anything like this before in my life. So guess what he won't be a dr. We will ever go to. Very strange makes you wonder about this dr.. Is this a new way of getting your patients now? Is this Dr. So selective in his patients that he doesnt want to serve those in need. WE have insurance the great "Obama care insurance". Oh maybe thats it because all we saw was older patients in there. Maybe they have medicare ? Oh well very weird indeed.
