Folks: I had an appointment with Dr. Stroud and I was 1000% dissatisfied and I will never go back.The exam started off fine. He examined my whole body looking for skin issues - But I found out later, that was not what he was looking for.He finally looked at the issue I came to the office for. He told me that it was nothing life threating and he could remove it or I could just leave it alone. So I choose to just leave it alone. Then he and his nurse started a side discussion about my insurance and deductibles. Then I found out why he examined my whole body. In my opinion - he was looking to run up the bill.So far my bill was the $30.00 co-pay. But then he told me that I really should have the spot on my ear taken off. So he did that. My fault for letting him do that. But I trusted him - found out that was a mistake.Then I went to pay my bill. Dr. Stroud was in the finance office talking to the person there. I walked in and sat down. The good doctor said let me take another look at your face. So he did and then just out of the blue he said, "OMG I found something we need to remove!" Again trusting him I allowed him to remove it. NOW I return to pay my bill and it has gone from the $30.00 co-pay to $280.00. It is obvious to me that he talked to the finance person and she told him that my Bill was only $30.00 and so he took me back and ran up the bill. I feel like he (as a doctor) DID NOT see me as a patient, but he looked at me as if I were an ATM machine and he wanted his share. He ran the bill up on me and I am very disappointed. I will NEVER go back.If you want a GOOD HONEST DOCTOR, I encourage you think twice and or have $300.00 or $400.00 ready to give to him.
