Greed

I have been going to Dr. Chen for years and she advised I needed to have a necessary medical procedure on my eye lids. I went to a plastic surgeon not in her office who did a great job. When I requested a letter of medical necessity to submit to my insurance company I found out that she had not performed (or told me to have performed) required tests. In other words she said I needed to have the operation, but never performed the test to verify it. Shame. This after many many years.
