On May 1, 2016, on a Sunday evening approximately 5:30 pm, I thought my left ankle was broken. Because this occurred on a Sunday, my primary physicians office was closed, Care Now offices in my area closed at 5:00 pm. Due to the severe pain, swelling and redness, I stopped at a nearby First Choice Emergency Room, believing I broke my ankle. I filled out their required paperwork and waited for about thirty minutes to be called back. After I was called to the back, I was put in a room to wait for the doctor. A doctor Walker came in and looked at my ankle and said it was a sprain, and wrote a prescription for Naproxen. Thats it!! There was no xray, no physical exam, nothing!! I was escorted out to a desk to pay a $150.00 co pay. Less than three weeks later I received a bill for $1425.00. For what?!!!
