Patient Profiling. I recorded the conversation.

First some backstory... I have been working twards my ambitions to become a social worker however have hit a road block in regards to college due to what I believe may be an un diagnosed learning disability or some other issue that is affecting my brain to not process numbers. My insurance did not cover the expensive cost of psycho-educational diagnostics so I started making phone calls to find a family practice doctor who might be able to refer me for my screening. I called Dr. Freddie James Bennett MD's office. The lady on the phone politely told me that they accept my insurance and that they had appointments available within the next couple weeks. That was great because I needed to get this taken care of before fall classes started so that If I did have a disability, it would be accommodated under the law. Then she asked me if I was currently prescribed any medications. I informed her of the one medication that I get prescribed by another doctor which is a narcotic. Her demeanor changed as she informed me that they don't take patients for that. I explained to her, that I was not making this appointment in regards to any medication request or any issue that pertains to this medication in any way. I explained to her that I intended to make the appointment to get a doctors opinion on a possible learning disability or some other issue that prevents me from using numbers in any form at all. She told me that he does not deal with any testing of this nature. I told her that that is okay, because I was only making the appointment to see if I could get a referral to a doctor who did do the testing so that my insurance would cover it. She told me that she would have to call me back tomorrow. During the call she had put me on hold for a few seconds at a time to ask questions about what I was telling her. Remember, she has just told me that they accepted my insurance and that they have spaces available within the next few weeks. I have on recording the whole conversation and It is clear her change in tone, demeanor, and that the reason I was being denied the appointment was because I get prescribed a narcotic from another doctor. This is discrimination against people with certain health conditions, conditions that were not even valid for the purpose of the appointment, a purpose that is honorable by the way. This is called patient profiling. Doctor's offices who do this are unlikely to give fair, un discriminatory treatment to a patient who has already been 'profiled'. If she called me back i would not make the appointment after this. If you are prescribed any medications for main or are from a minority group, I would not schedule an appointment with this doctor.

Not happy but have no choice

I am now on Medicare and have to see Dr. Bennett because no other doctors in this area are taking new Medicare patients. Dr. Bennett is not a bad doctor - he is just a referral service for other doctors. In all the years I have been seeing him, he has never listened to my heart or lungs, has only taken blood once, and is usually not there anyway. You are limited to only 3 problems you may be having. If it happens to be more than 3, you are told to make an appointment to come back. Everyone in the office is extremely nice and Dr. Bennett and Lisa Paul are very kind and attentive people as well but the level of care is simply substandard.
