Letter to Dr. Harry Taylor and Shannon Suhr, NP, at Aviva Health regarding worsening cognition and physical coordination of one of their patients that they seem to over-medicate without proper monitoring.
Dr. Hoyne wastes patient's time "investigating" other doctor's practices by grilling them on how they operate, what they charge, and more. Yet he charges the patient's insurance for his time that has nothing to do with true patient care!
Umpqua Community Health Center (UCHC) recently changed their name under the state business registry. They still kept the one name for legal reasons, but changed the public name to the DBA (doing business as) name of “Aviva.”
Patient had EKG testing done last year at Samaritan Lebanon Hospital. This year I ordered another EKG to monitor their condition and specifically wrote on the order form to compare it to last year’s EKG (something that is commonly done).
I predict that within the next two to five years we will be seeing two major trends happening within our healthcare system and they will both be the result of the changes Medicare has been making towards the reimbursement system...
It seems that Umpqua Health and it’s clinical and administrative staff have big secrets to hide. First they close their office on Harvard Avenue WITHOUT informing patients . . . no letter, no phone calls, etc.
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 ongoing clash with this clinic is far from over. They have failed to send us records in a timely manner for years. Now their ploy is to NOT fax records to our office despite the patient’s signed Release of Information form stating they may do so.
Prior Authorizations have been used for years by insurance companies and pharmacy benefit mangers (PBM’s) to deny or delay medications, imaging, treatments, surgeries, etc. for their insured patient, their own client.
Here’s my response to the article “Michigan Opioid Study Discusses Access to Primary Care Clinics for Patients with Chronic Pain” posted on July 14, 2019 by Ed Coghlan on the National Pain Report website.
Here is my second response due to the many responses posted by patients on the article “Michigan Opioid Study Discusses Access to Primary Care Clinics for Patients with Chronic Pain” posted on July 14, 2019 by Ed Coghlan on the National Pain Report website
Mercy Medical Center recently LOST an EKG that was performed on my patient. In fact they had the WRONG phone number and address for the patient in their computer system, and even noted the patient’s marital status WRONGLY.
It has been reported to me by reliable sources that do not wish to get involved with the proper reporting of such crimes that two doctors in Roseburg have had staff members falsifying prescriptions and passing them off in town.
Reviewed another patient’s records from Evergreen Family Medicine. No controlled substance agreement was on file. No Material Risk Notice was on file. Both of these are strongly recommended by medical organizations and the Oregon Medical Board.
After reviewing the records on a patient and discussing the records with the patient in person, it becomes apparent that a Nurse Practitioner at the South River Community Health Center commits fraud on her medical records.
Just reviewed the final records on a patient being seen by a doctor at the Umpqua Community Health Center. I had previously reviewed what records they sent and had to ask for additional records that they failed to send as part of the original package.
Evergreen Family Medicine has again failed to provide all the appropriate medical records on a patient that they have been treating. Every document signed by the providers is part of the medical record.
Just reviewed over 400 pages of medical records from Sonoma Family Practice out of Sonoma, CA. The two page “Consent form for Controlled Substane Therapy” is NOT signed by the physician and is NOT dated.
Major medical associations and state agencies advocate for the use of pain agreements and Material Risk Notices to be completed with chronic pain patients before continuing to prescribe opioid medications long term.
Usually when I read medical records from our local medical providers, I get sarcasm and disdain from them regarding the fact that I am also seeing their patient and allow them to use medical marijuana with or without opiate medications.
Any patient who signs the Electronic Medical Record notice that DCIPA and other clinics demand needs to realize that their confidential health history is now available to anyone who has access to that computer system.
As reported in the News Review Jan. 12, 2018, “The Roseburg Veterans Affairs Medical Center has the highest rate of opioid prescriptions of any VA in the country, according to a report released Thursday by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.”
Just reviewed over two years worth of medical records from South River CHC regarding a patient that 3 providers (Skyler Meyer, FNP and Marcy Dean, FNP and Carl Leder, PA) prescribed ongoing opiates to.
