Great experience

Cruel office staff

My 90 year old mother has been a patient there for many years and loves Dr, Farghaly but recently had an ID number change by Aetna her insurance company; Dr. Farghaly's staff will not submit the correct number and insists that my mother owes over $500, this is not true, representatives from Aetna has tried several times to get them to fix the problem and they refuse to do so! My mother had made 2 appointments to see the doctor, One because she was ill and another because she needed her medications refilled, both appointments were cancelled on her and the receptionist was very nasty and hung up the phone on her twice. Aetna told my mother to find another primary and told her she would have no problems with another doctor since she has very good insurance! The rep from Aetna told the receptionist that she had no right to refuse my mother an appointment to see her doctor and will be filing a grievance against them: I am also going to right a letter to the Florida Board of Medicine! Office staff in a doctors office should never be allowed to treat patients this way! Linda Katzin

Well... Where do I begin?

Well... Where do I begin? With the office staff never answering the phone? With the telephone messages left never being returned by the her staff? Having to drive to their office to get an appointment scheduled? Arriving at their office, finding out they do not accept Medicaid (in a yr) and have not updated their status with Medicaid? Medicaid assigned Dr. Farghaly as my daughters primary Dr, we were not able to meet her, and due to the incompetence of the office staff she employs, I do not care to!
