This place is despicable. They denied treatment to woman on disability because she allegedly owed a co-payment from a previous visit. This is clear violation of the Emergency Medical Treatment & Labor Act (EMTALA).
In 1986, Congress enacted the Emergency Medical Treatment & Labor Act (EMTALA) to ensure public access to emergency services regardless of ability to pay. Section 1867 of the Social Security Act imposes specific obligations on Medicare-participating hospitals that offer emergency services to provide a medical screening examination (MSE) when a request is made for examination or treatment for an emergency medical condition (EMC), including active labor, regardless of an individual's ability to pay. Hospitals are then required to provide stabilizing treatment for patients with EMCs. If a hospital is unable to stabilize a patient within its capability, or if the patient requests, an appropriate transfer should be implemented.
I have been going to this place for years, I love the staff, they are very friendly and very helpful. I was there about six months ago for a work injury, it was the only time I had a bad experience, I had to go for follow up once a week for a month... There was a girl in the front desk, skinny with tiny dread locks, wearing a super hero scrub top eight times bigger than her, she was absolutely rude, she had no clue what she was doing. She left me in the lobby for two hours and forgot to give me paperwork the first time. She talked as if she is better than anyone else.
I went for my last appointment last week and I am glad she is no longer there.
I am totally pleased with the care, with the doctors and staff, and this will be my family clinic from now on.
