I visited a walk in clinic affiliated with a regional hospital for shortness of breath, in need of a refill for a rescue inhaler.

The first question asked was my ability to pay upfront.

I told them I was uninsured but could pay some money out of pocket at that time. They said full payment was required.

I asked to speak with the doctor in hope of negotiating payment directly with the provider and they said no.

I was told to visit the ER or call 911.

No medical screening was offered.

I left upset, confused and with more shortness of breath.

I was then involved in a single vehicle motor vehicle accident where I was injured. I don’t recall what happened other than having trouble focusing on the road.

Should I call Morgan and Morgan?

You're upset that someone refused giving you services you couldn't pay for?

You should call Gordon so he can funnel a small small portion of his massive margins back to local football team. Everyone loves local football team, so everyone loves Gordon

Sounds like you need a pair of balls more than an ambulance chaser. Hope this helps.

You have a strong case because the clinic violated their hypocritical oath

It's a shitty situation, but I don't see the need for litigation.

So you were aware of your condition and you decided to get behind the wheel? How is this their fault? Why didn't you call 911?

They are a private business. They don't owe you shite. This is no one's fault but your own.

False. Become educated on a topic before you speak, you are ignorant.

Absolutely not, I had several hundred dollars at that time but no credit card to cover the remaining balance.

I was upset because there was absolutely no compassion shown.

How can you turn away someone struggling to breathe??

Should have said no habla English. They’d jumped right on it. The medical business is a scam.

Why not? We all know the welfare:Medicaid crowd and illegals get it. He should have received help. Medical care is not a privilege.

The walk in clinic is 2 miles away, the hospital is 19 miles away.
