Was contacted by an out-of-state media company called Patient Point that was hired by Mercy to start advertising local physicians on a TV screen located in their ER and south entrance to their hospital. The Patient Point agent researched physicians in the area taking new patients and what they had to say about healthcare. She contacted me out of the blue to wonder if I would be interested in such advertising. I told her that Mercy discriminates against my patients and my practice on an almost daily basis by denying timely medical records, telling ER patients that I am accepting new patients, and so much more. I told her that she better contact Mercy administrators to see if they would even consider having me advertise at their hospital.

Guess what? She called back two days later on 9-19-19 to inform me that Mercy said NO. Of course. I didn’t expect anything but that answer. But it clearly shows the discrimination that they have towards me and my staff and my patients.

    Hospitals only promote those doctors who make them money by ordering expensive imaging and labs.

    The hospital is all about the money, anyway they can get it and keep it. They lie, cheat, commit fraud, and more.

    So sad that they put their financial line ahead of good patient community relations.

    Hospitals make big bucks off providers who refer their patients to the hospital for labs and imaging and other tests. They pretty much expect those referrals. If you don’t, then don’t want to deal with you.

    Hospitals discriminate against providers? I thought they took everyone who can make money for them.
