This doctor treated me well while in the hospital. At his office it was completely different. From them losing my appointment info and making me wait over and hour until a Dr. arrived. In the last year he has been at any of follow up appointments. His staff informed me that since that did not have change for a $20, I cannot see the doctor or receive medication. The very next visit when handing her the exact co-pay, I was told I had an over due balance of $22 and change. When I asked what for, from when ? No one could find any reason that this was owed. Never received a call or letter. I was told I had to pay this without being told the reason or any information. If I did not, no Dr. , No Medication. These medications or for anxiety and anger issues which when you have to pay extra money without a reason or without your meds. I knew I couldn't do that because of them turning me away before I knew what I was going to not be able to control my emotions. Instead of receiving a 90 day supply as usual, I got a 30 day supply. I was told were making some changes and will call you. When they called I was told I had to come by, pick some papers to be re-evaluated. If Dennis Ochei would have been a any appointment over the last year, he would he came to the same conclusion that he did while in the hospital. He can evaluate me without costing me money I don't have and have me ask my 83 year old mother drive me there. His failure to be at any follow up is the reason for doing this. When a patient is told, no meds unless you do things that are wrong or cough up money that they can't explain. That's holding Medication I need like a hostage until pay ransom. Blue Cross faxed, mailed and called about 4 medications that they need to decide on covering. He never responded and when I hand delivered it, the Dr. on duty said that's for your pharmacy. After I explained this is for the Dr. who prescribes not the ones who fill it. As I was leaving she said , don't forget your paperwork, on my third explanation of this is not mine, it HAS to be done by my doctor. I knew it would not make it to Blue Cross. I got 4 denial of coverage due to "no response from Doctor" I'm wishing after I witnessed these events I knew after 3 doctors before not helping. I knew if I had the medication I could contain most of the time. So I put up with this because I was scared to go the another Dr. and get no help. When the refusal of meds unless unknown money had to be paid and Go spend money for a evaluation because he failed to not be at a single follow up in the last year. If I don't no more meds. Without meds if I lose the ability to control emotions, he and his staff have the top position and who let this happen.
