No treatment, just a bill

I saw Dr. Novak for two minutes. He asked me if I had indicated that I had a fractured hand when I made the appointment. I said of course I had. (I had x-rays taken at an urgent care center prior to this appointment.) He told me he could not treat me and that I would need to come back tomorrow when a hand specialist would be in the office. Fine. Annoying but fine. The kicker is that Dr. Novak charged me for that visit. His office scheduled me incorrectly, he didn't treat me, my time was wasted but yet he charged me.

Stretched way too thin way to any patients

I'm not sure I've ever been treated with such a carefree attitude by someone who in theory was there to help me. He lacks compassion And also seems to not want to listen to his patients. All in all a horrible experience

he put me back together

After shattering my leg, I was seen quickly, 2 surgeries later I can walk again, and I had my doubts. Also a medical professional, I feel he is the best at what he does.
