Scam paid up front

Went to this company after they came to work and did free massages, went for my "free evaluation". They said they could help me, but then charges me up front. Never pre-pay for service. They signed me up for interest free credit then charged the card. It took repeated attempts to get a statement from this company. When I did (after months of requesting) I found that they never refunded my card for unused balance. I am no better and felt I was ran through my treatment like cattle. I compared my bill to another who was receiving treatment and found in some cases were billed 3 times what she was billed.

Used and Abused by chiropractor

My husband and I were in an auto accident. Went to this place because it was so recommended by a friend, and now we wish we would have used our chiropractor. Between an extreme number of appointments and a huge fee attached to each one we both realized our insurance wouldn't go far. And when you throw in the vitamins they push, the pillow they push, the support (that would never support anything)you will be broke. And don't even talk to them about coming less often, they will insure you are injured when you leave. In my case I made that mistake twice. And now they have come up with the brilliant idea that they haven't been paid. And unfortunately for me they didn't always give me a receipt. Lesson learned I guess. But don't go there, and if you already are, leave and never look back.

Consumer Beware of HealthSource Chiroprator - Kingwood

I went to HealthSource Chiropractic of Kingwood after I had a car accident in May. I learned the massage therapist on staff were not licensed and had no background in massage therapy. They would literally just start massaging an area without knowing what or why they are doing it. They had unqualified exercise therapist performing physical therapy duties, I remember I only had one session of the physical therapy "exercise" because there was no one-on-one plan, everyone was doing the same exercises and in a very confined area. I thought if I continued with the sessions, my condition would improve, never happened, I actually felt worse. When I needed a letter for my insurance that I was receiving treatment, they would not cooperate with me and then began to treat me like I was unwelcomed. I decided that was enough, over thousand dollars later, a lesson learned. Stay away.

Health Source / Shapiro Chiropractic

Beware if you notify these people that you were involved in an accident what they charge will increase dramatically. They will become more concerned with you getting a lawyer and themselves getting a check. I have had personal experience with using them as a walk-in, and then went to them following an accident. Felt completely used and abused. What had been a $15-$20 co pay per visit became a $300-$500 an hour treatment plan which I was never told of till I saw the bill. Very dishonest outfit. They have you sign a virtual blank check for your treatment before they even treat you. Look elsewhere.

Healthsource Chiropractic Franchise SCAM

For anyone looking to buy a Healthsource Chiropractic franchise; I have one word for you........SCAM! Recently I quit as a massage therapist from a Healthsource in IL. Everything is scripted; from the greetings you give the patients to the treatment plans. Healhsource has a generic formula that they use on all the patients depending on what issue you have. For instance: if you come in with problems with a stiff neck or a herniated disk in your cervical vertabrae; all the "so called" physical therapy is exactly the same for the two. The exercises and stretches are no different (in a certain area) for the various injuries and illnesses. The therapy is not tailored to your own specific needs and biomechanics, despite what they tell you. Also many of the massage therapist on staff were not licensed(you have to have a license in IL) and had no background in massage therapy. They would literally just start massaging an area without knowing what or why they are doing it. Also they had unqualified exercise therapist performing physical therapy duties, which is illegal in IL. The goal of the clinic was to pack as many patients in there at one time and rack up the units per individual. You could be on a tredmill for a 1/2 hr warming-up just so they can bill for an extra unit. You could also be stretching the same muscle for a 1/2 hr, just so they could bill for more "therapy." They also discouraged patients from using the TENS machine because they only get around $20 for each session. Even if the patient could benefit from the EMS, they had they doing exercise and stretching instead because it pays more. This is not physical therapy or has any relavence for rehab. What I witnessed was absolutely appalling. This franchise should definitely be investigated for unethical practices.

I was employed as receptionist at the Health Source in Anderson, S. C.

and kept getting excuses for not being paid for over 3 months. The Doctor kept telling me he was waiting for a attorney to pay him on an accident case. Finally I just Quit.

Reported it. Have a Lawyer working with me now trying to recoup salary.

I am a franchisee and i can tell you i cant wait till im done. The ehr software is so cumbersome not very efficient at all.

Zirmed is good but that has nothing to do with healthsource. Ehr system is 5 times as high as much better cloud based software. Dynatronics deals are over priced, no real group discounts, products not superior, you can find pretty much everything that they sell cheaper online. I dont use there marketing and there website sends 1 to 2 pts per mth.

In short zero advantage for me using these guys.i can say if you have an issue with there softwsre tech support is pretty good. They will be laying people off soon cz over the next couple of years the bulk of the contracts will expire .

I was phone solicited by HealthSource back in 6/2012. They threatened to move a new DC in across the street from me in the next 6 months.

The only way I could avoid this competition was to join them, thus paying them a hefty $25,000 for a franchise fee. I told them to go ahead and stick a newbie across the street. They never did. Was it just a scare tactic?

Now nearly 8 months later, I'm being prospected by HealthSource again.

Different salesperson, via greeting card instead of by phone this time around, but the same message of "Join us or face competition in 6 months".

HealthSource can kiss my ***! :(

It's amusing that the franchise fees are now up to $34K

I am was employed by a HealthSource Office..(I quit)I couldnt take the annoyance of the job..The scripts had to be the most annoying..If I wanted to read scripts all day instead of being a human an not a recorded robot, I would of became a actress..We had schedule a screening at a local business to get new patients in, sounds easy enough, but the Dr. made such a big deal about this 3 hr screening..I had to rehearse a 6 page script on what to say to ppl about a simple mini massage an spinal check..He also expected patients to pay for about 6 weeks of treatment on the second visit, which most of the time was in the thousands an in this time of recession an hard times is not feasible for many ppl.

If a patient missed an appt, I can understand one or 2 calls to reschedule but the Dr. had me make several calls an send postcards, I honestly felt like a stalker..There is also something called a EZ report which is printed out everyday, this shows the days statistics. To be honest I hated it..I was reprimanded if a patient didnt make at least 4 weeks worth of appts..I cant force a person to make that many appts. If a patient said to make "Ill make a appt for Tues" an the schedule reconciliation only showed one appt I would be ask on a daily basis "Why did this patient only make one appt?" I wanted on many occasions say to the Dr.

"I dont know why dont u make the appts an ask them urself" an I quit because my boss was as cheap as they came, I had NO medical coverage, NO sick days, NO vacation days, NO 401K, NO BENEFITS..an if my boss decided to take a vacation, I just didnt get paid for that week. If he wanted to take care of something on a business day an took a morning or afternoon off, I DIDNT get paid. :( .

I did all aspects of reception that included making appts, calling patients, sending and receiving mail, taking messages, I did ALL the correspondence mail (The Dr. hardly ever did anything himself besides adjustments..I did the financial consults, I also did all the insurance verifications, I did ALL the billing and accounting, the list goes on...I was also out of my home from 8:30am till 6:30pm for work..ALL that for $11.00 an hour..I was doing the work that usually would be any where from $13-25 an hr..If your looking for employment stay away from there..

Lisa,

I was a receptionist as well for an office in Massachusetts. I cannot believe that I am reading this.

I can totally and completely relate to EVERYTHING!!!! you are saying. My responsibilities were the same as yours. I was paid $10 an hour.

I Started last month in November, and I walked out yesterday.

I lasted exactly one month!!! They;re a scam

Be very wary of becoming a HealthSource franchisee. Healthsource does not have any systems that help you in any way. Once you join you will never see the RD ever again. These are points to ponder before joining.

1. Most people don’t leave because they threaten to sue you if you leave.

2. They have no new systems just newspaper ads which are now useless.

3. They provide no co-op advertising for all of their offices.

4. Most of the large practices that have a marketing CA that that person was trained by the 5 Star NPA program. That is a fact call NPA!

5. They do not do any research in helping you find a location for your practice.

6. They do not know how to manage multiple clinics most RDs never had multiple clinics and have no experience in doing it.

7. The billing software is not eligible for the Government Rebate of 44k. Plus you have to pay extra for the EHR portion bringing the total to close to $600 a month for the software you never own..

8. You do not get anything for your 7% royalty fee no TV commercials, no infomercials, no radio ads.

9. The web page optimization is focused on the corporate website and the site your paying $400 for back doors into the corporate web page with very little information about you or your practice.

10. Call the offices on the map most are leaving, have left, or closed. Call the ones that have been there for 1 year.

11. Look up who owns the www. Healthsource scam.com if it was so good why does the company buy the url for scam???
