WATCH OUT FOR HIDDEN FEES!!!.
Park Dental is charging patients $69 for missed appointments, which is not disclosed up front or on website. I received a bill for $139.84 for two missed appointments for my older son, plus filing fees. The clinic never disclosed the charge/fee up front to patients. I was not able to find the disclosure of the fee on their website, nor was I ever told of the charge as a new patient. Charges such as this should be clearly disclosed to all patients.
When I made my billing inquiry with the clinic, I was told by Nancy (who refused to give her last name) that clinics can charge whatever they want to patients for wasting the doctor's time. She said she spoke with Dr. Jason Ziemer, who refused to remove the charges, because those missed appointments was his time wasted. Can clinics make up their own charges and determine their own amount for things, such as missed appointments?! How is this fair to patients who have to wait 20+ minutes to be seen? Is our time not as available? Will the clinic pay us for wasted time in their waiting room? DO NOT GO TO ANY PARK DENTAL - THEY APPARENTLY ENJOY RIPPING PATIENTS OFF!!!
