I have went to this hospital for years. The last few years I found out they group all Drs on the campus TOGETHER in regards to billing. I refused to pay the Dr fee for Dr Todd Smith who failed me on two... more surgeries (one for my shoulder and one for my knee). I was up front with Todd, as I was told prior I needed a knee replacement. He told me I could get 5-7 years with a scope. I didn't get any relief and after one year limped worse now than I did before. My shoulder was supposedly fixed by Dr Smith as well. I wake up to it locking every single night. I tried the patient advocate who is 100% paid by the hospital and in their pocket. There was no resolution. Back to the point of my post, I went to see Dr Jill Ackerman and was told I had to pay my balance to Dr Todd Smiths office before coming to her office. I have always paid my balance to Dr Ackerman as she does fine work. Unfortunately she lost my business due to the greedy corporation who has made their fair share of money off of me.
Really disappointed in the hospital. My doctor wanted me to get a ultrasound and the hospital called to schedule it, then called back to verify and do my preregistration also to advise the cost would need... more to be paid before the procedure $950, I called Diagnostic Imaging and they quoted me $250, can't imagine there is a $700 difference. Called my doctor and had them send my info to DI, SMMC is a rip off!! Get a clue!!
