Insurance forced us to go here to get a referral to my wife's current doctor, who was & still is "in network". We were told she had to pay for a doctor's appointment to get the referral. After which she was told they wouldn't give her a referral, even though they don't have similar services as our current provider. We went through 3 appeals with them, and they still denied it. Not once did they mention any reason regarding health... only that they want all business coming through them. Money-hungry in the worst way.

Sorry to say I had a horrible experience at this clinic about 2 years ago and have not been back since. Getting blood drawn for lab tests is absolutely no issue for me. My experience is always just fine, but at this clinic, it was awful. The nurse drawing my blood did not seem to care when I told her there was a narrow, tightening and numbing sensation going down my arm all the way to the area below my thumb while the blood was being drawn. I could not extend my arm out for 8 weeks after that experience due to extremely sharp pain just below my thumb (on the palm side). I called the clinic to report this a few times and they said the manager would call back. The manager never called back. I went to urgent care at the Woodbury Health Partners a day or two later since I wasn't sure why I was still having sharp pains. I paid another copay for this visit. The doctor said it's possible there might be scar tissue forming and referred me to a nearby physical therapy office to get therapy on the arm, where I paid another copay. Thankfully the pain is not as bad as it used to be, but my arm has problems now with light but sharp pain coming back to that area below the thumb every now and then. I wish I had been more persistent about speaking to the manager 2 years ago and at least getting those subsequent visits to urgent care and physical therapy paid for. On top of all this, the doctor I saw for a pap smear after the blood draw was cold and didn't exactly give me an opportunity to tell her what had happened. I was hopeful about this place but sad to say I haven't returned.
Please beware that 'specialty clinic' may mean that they don't quite know what to do, how to approach the patients' custom needs. after two dozen visits to Lifetime Clinic, I came away with a mere half pair of elbow pads, a rudimentary adjustment to my aging wheel chair mount, and NONE of the durable equipment that my physician and I sought. Doesn't help the process that they seem to disregard patients' input as so-called 'behavior'. And that they substituted an eval for new prostesetics with an eval for bathing equipment that I procured long ago. An eval summary running 15 pages in Single word wide columns is not accessible media to the motor disabled Estimated that Dep't of human services dropped 300 miles for this wild goose chase lasting 20+ appointments
It was my first visit to the Maplewood VA Clinic. I was there almost 3 hours and everyone was attentive, professional, and THOROUGH. I went there with some trepidation but left feeling that my medical care is in good hands.
