OVER CHARGE FOR STICHES REMOVAL FOLLOW UP
I went to the Woodbury MN ER for a bad cut on finger, required several stitches. I was told to come back for removal of the stitches and they stated that is all included in original visit charges. They informed me that there are no additional charges. Went back for removal, doc came in to look at it for less than a minute, and then charged me another $310.75 to write a prescription due to possible infection. There was no other patients in at that time and I still waited over 30 minutes for someone in the room I was put in. Everyone was just standing around talking. I finally stepped out and they said someone will be in soon. You are better off going directly to a hospital ER. Charges are the same and they will get in you faster.

14-2. It is interesting that Dr. Shafe who is so open about protecting the rights of his staff hires a billing company that BLATANTLY BREAKS ILLINOIS STATE LAW ABOUT RECORDING PHONE CALLS WITHOUT THE PERMISSION OF THE PERSON CALLING IN! Michael, you should know better than this!
It is strange that Dr. Shaffe says ALL the charges have been written off when I continue to get and PAY bills sent to me from the Urgency Room.
Original review posted by user Dec 18, 2012I had a question about my billing that I had discussed with the office manager but Dr. Shafe called me at least 3 times requesting that I talked to him. He became completely unglued. He said he "double-dogged dared me" to file a lawsuit which I had never said that I would. I returned his call at his request but he said he would "call the police" on me - for what I don't know. The Urgency Room charged $125 for a visit when their price list states $98 and charged a weekend fee of $35 NEVER mentioned on their website or price list. STAY AWAY FROM THIS BUSINEES AND ESPECIALLY THIS DOCTOR!!!!
