Very unhappy patient

Dr.Sasser treated me for a broken wrist in 2013. He told me he could treat it with just a cast-Ha! I wore a cast for eight weeks. Without taking xray he removed the cast on a Friday. I was in excruciating pain over week end . On Monday he referred me to another incompent Dr. in his group which turned out to be a disaster. I wrote this review before.My second complaint is his billing pratices. Some time after my care his office starts billing for two $25.00 copays. I explained to them you did not get in to see the Dr. untill you paid your copay. I paid the $50.00 because I did not want them to damage my credit.This was in 2013 after three years in latter 2016 there was an audit done on him I RECEIVED a $50.00 refund.I wonder how many people that had overpaiid did not get a refund. Man $50.00 here and $50.00 there would amount to quite a cache.I am only giving a star because I have to in oeder to file an review.

I THINK DR SASSER IS INCOMPETENT. HE DOES NOT LISTEN TO HIS PATIENTS. WANTS TO DO ALL OF THE TALKING. I WAS VERY UNHAPPY WITH MY EXPERIENCE WITH HIM. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND HIM TO MY FRIENDS.
