First off the doctors have no idea how to actually treat anyone. They simply say "hey here a list of like ten different things we could do that might help you....Pick one" Seriously? I'm making my own medical choices?
Second you get to see an actual doctor maybe the first two times you come in. Then you get to see a Doctor's Assistant which is kind of like a nurse. They are NOT doctors. They see you from there on out. They can decide what to do with you now and they just go have the doctors sign the scripts.
I've been going there 2 years now and they have done nothing. I know your thinking well maybe you have something thats hard to fix... Maybe. The point is maybe if i actually got to see a DOCTOR i might be doing better.
Lastly say you suddenly get sick. Lets say Friday afternoon you get sick and you have an appointment Monday. Well unless you have a time machine you will have to pay $60 to cancel that Monday appointment. (Oh yeah they are closed Friday) Also say you have a Tuesday appointment at 3pm and you come down with an extremely contagious virus like the flu or the new Sydney norovirus and you call at 4pm Monday. Guess what! You get to pay $60 to keep everyone at there practice from getting said virus. NO EXCEPTIONS! Doesn't that seam a little unethical to you? I'd say so.
So in other words you don't get to see a real doctor, you get to decide how to treat yourself and you can't cancel an appointment for ANY reason if less that 24 hours.
I have had chronic pain for 15 years. They have given me my life back. After life changing medication changes, I had a SCS trial a year ago and then a perm put it (not at there office) but at Dr. Turner s after the trial was done at Meridian. The staff has always been helpfull even when my insurance company wasn t whether it was with my procedure or with my medications.

1. As a new patient you will be seen by a physicians assisstant (or PA). The PA has not had the same schooling as the Doctor. They are assisstants like executive assisstants are. They are knowledgable in medicine like any nurse but they have some unique training in limited diagnostics and have limited prescribing powers.
My PA was L. She was set to hard sell me on a treatment approach that I wasn't prepared for the minute she entered the door. MHG has you sign a lot of paperwork getting you to agree to ""do whatever they want you to do"" before you ever walk in the door. At the time I signed those papers I thought ""sure, of course, if it will treat my pain"" why would i refuse?. When L made her pitch however it was clear that if I were to go to the ""Hospital"" (a nice word MHG uses for a true-lockdown Psychiatric Unit) for the required 5 to 7 days, I would be giving these people carte blanche to mess with all my medications not just my pain medications. I would in fact be accepting Dr D as my Psychiatrist as well as my Pain Management Doctor wthout MY KNOWING CONSENT. L commented how some of my medicines were old fashioned and harmful which as a scientist, I know they aren't. She said they were going to change those they didn't like and use ""newer & better"" medications. She never ASKED if they could touch my psyche meds or that they would even call MY ACTUAL PSYCHIATRIST. They were just going to change these medications.
This is the old BAIT & SWITCH (B&S). In a B&S certain products are advertised. In this example the product is Pain Management (PM). Then when the consumer shows up to take advantage of the offer the sales team will deceptively hard sell the confused consumer a more expensive item they didn't ask for or need.
In MHG's case this would be their ability to tap your insurance (and ultimately you) for many Medical Services you don't need and aren't aware you've agreed to in the first case (they actually make you sign something that says you are not planning to go thru a bankruptcy. At the time my husband and I signed it we thought it was a insensitive thing to ask - but now I know it is because this is all about being paid!).
2. Now, in reference to the quality of the people at this house of mirrors:
L - If you get L she will come into your room and hard sell you that what every other doctor has done to you is no good and that ""we have much better drugs available"". She will inform or at least insinuate to you that you are drug addicted and drug seeking even when you know you aren't. If you challenge her on it she will tell you all about her ""18 years with neurosurgeons"" or some such thing. She will talk over you and almost dare you to challenge her. When you do she will pull out her ""18 years as a such and such with neurosurgeons"" speech which she apparently equates with going to medical school, doing an Internship, doing a Residency in Neurophysiology (and Neurosurgery), and a Residency in Psychiatry (with prestigious Fellowships, of course!).
Now as far as Dr. D goes I can't tell you much because all he did was (literally) swoop in at the right time to impress the dire need for hospitaliztion (PSYCHE WARD). The most memorable thing that he said was when my husband said there was a money concern to which Dr. D actually said, ""money, money, everyones always concerned with money! This will help you. Don't think about money!"" Yeah. In my world money is still a big deal...he never did offer to pay for it hmself. I wonder why?
The worst thing I can say about MHG and Dr. D is that these people get a patient at their most vulnerable time and they take full advantage of them.
