"I have experienced excellent care at this Carilion office, however my Dr. is leaving this practice now.Due to this I have to choose a different physician. this is always hard to do, as my disappointment I had only one choice due to the fact the other Dr. supposedly is not taking Medicare patients anymore. I made a appointment with the only Dr. available due to my insurance status. The next couple of days, a friend informed me they got a appointment with the Dr. that I wanted and they had medicare ins., same as I.Their appointment was made after I was told I did not qualify. I have been a patient there since the 80s and had informed my friend to visit this office. I am very disappointed with this, I call it discrimination, This is a good practice and good Drs. Why? I also have a secondary ins...., not Medicaid , even though there is nothing wrong with it. I just wish ins. was not a factor in a doctors' visit. I understand Gov.ins. does not pay the medical field well enough. I have no choice, but to change doctors. I hope I am not wrong about this situation because I love this office."
