Doctors that do not take patients that do not have insurance are part of our overall healthcare problems. I am in pain and can pay cash for any office visit or follow-up work needed.
I have to wonder about doctors that won't treat someone without insurance. I am not asking for free medical care. I guess they can't overcharge a patient paying cash for a bunch of bogus tests or recommend unneeded surgeries. I thought doctors became physicians to help people.
I hope others will boycott Dr. Kinnett and Dr. Landry at North Oaks Orthopedic Speciality Center in Hammond LA, on the fact they only take patients with insurance.
I never knew I was a second-class citizen and would be refused medical care because I can pay cash. So, I guess without insurance I have to remain in pain and continue to suffer.
