Have you seen Dr. Melvyn Bishow?
Doctor was a NJ Doc that took off suddenly to go to New Mexico
Self-verified patient of Dr. Melvyn Bishow - Posted on March 6th, 2009
When Dr. Melvyn Bishow was a NJ doc he took care of a family member of mine in the 1980's. He kept putting my relative in the hospital for 6 weeks at a time for minor procedures. I believe this was before pre-utilization review in hospitals. This happened 3-4 times that she was admitted for things that they should have been out for in a week in those days. All of a sudden he takes off and states he was going to New Mexico in less than a month. It was all so weird, in the weeks to follow, his wife sent a handwritten letter saying the relative owed money that was not true, it was like it was a scam, it was the only thing we could figure out. We sent letter back saying we would have medicare investigate and then we never received anymore letters after that. While he seemed to be a smart, knowledgeable doctor in diagnosing our ailments, something was definitely amiss. I would check and see if he has been suspended, for what and how many times before considering him. His wife was his sole office person and they both had a good bedside manner, but what they tried to do to my relative was bad and when we sent that rebuttal letter it confirmed to be that they were may have been billing illegally!
