Concerned Parent

BUYER BEWARE!!! Dr. Temple practices at Banner Baywood Hospital. Banner is a contracted provider for my insurance company. What Dr. Temple fails to disclose is that even though he practices at a Banner ER, a contracted hospital, he does not claim to be contracted so he can charge anything he wants and the patient must cover the difference. In my case we paid all deductibles and fulfilled requirements for insurance coverage and were still left with a 300.00 bill from this doctor. As a parent of a child needing emergency care (of which his care was questionable) I was not informed of this nor did I have any choice in the matter, just stuck with a bill after the fact... Shame on you Dr. Temple
