Big Guy, if it goes straight from one Doctor to the next Doctor electronically is no charge. If you walk out of their office with the report in hand then it's the custom to be charged. In this instance, paying may not have been a bad idea. Thankfully you got your records.

I agree his office staff doesn't understand customer service.

Some great Doctors are not Great Managers. Like I said I think the world of Dr. Balingit and even think more highly of him now for this save on John W.

It's funny how now that I'm not a loyal customer anymore I'm getting billed each month on exactly the same day. Is it possible that someone reported what has been written on TOTV'S and things just changed from Zero to a Ten from the office & billing staff? I wish the Doctor and his Beautiful Family nothing but the best. It was not a problem that couldn't be fixed, it just needed a little management.

You shouldn't need a Pulmonologist when you get off the phone or on an office visit with your Pulmonologist. Can you dig it?

Just this year alone, when I had my annual chest cat-scan from the VA in April they didn't find anything of concern. Two weeks later I had a cat-scan for Dr. Balingit which he orders every six months since I have COPD, which he diagnosed three years ago. He found some things he didn't like, and ordered a head to toe pet-scan and then referred me to an ioconologist at Florida Cancer Center. They diagnosed me with non-hodgkins lymphoma and removed three bumps under my left armpit. If I had only relied on the VA for my health care, I would probably be dead now. I appreciate everything Dr. Balingit has done for me.
Same here. I found the doctor to be very kind, empathetic and caring. He did my biopsies, etc. The staff has something to be desired for sure, tho. I'm sorry for him. He is a nice man, I believe, being taken advantage of. Someone needs to get in there and run that office for him.
