BodyLogicMD / unethical practice
I found Dr. Kaye online when I googled Adrenal Glands. I called Body LogicMD, Dr. Kaye's medical franchise in 9/11, and spoke with an office personal. Dr. Kaye’s next opening was 01/12. I made an app. for 01/24/12. Making an app. with Dr. K requires pre-paying $614, for blood lab work and a saliva test kit, regardless if ones appointment is 4 months away. I was to download the requisition for lab work to be done only at Quest Diagnostic. The Saliva Test kit was to come through the mail. I would also need to complete a questioner on their webpage, plus download an additional 48 page questioner to be filled in and mailed.
B. L. does not mail out any paperwork. B.L. does not accept insurance. B.L. has a 7 day no refund policy from the date your appointment is made, they don’t tell you that, it’s in small print on the bottom of your sale's receipt, which you must download or view online.
After the 7 day no refund period passed I received 3 calls from B. L., over 2 wk period, stating they haven't receive my questioner, they had openings if I got my tests and questioner(s) completed. I submitted all my pre-visit prerequisites by mid-Oct. and soon after I received a barrage of calls from B.L. saying they have received my lab results and my questioner(s) and have openings for me to see Dr. K. I was in no hurry to move up my appointment with Dr. Kaye. I was bothered by the additional cost I incurred to download their paperwork plus mailing it. I began feeling uneasy about B.l., I decided to google Dr. K. Yelp.com had one review on Dr. Kaye; a negative review. (I mentioned the negative review to B.L., the review has since been removed.)
On 11/2, I called B.L., I wanted to pickup a copy of my lab results. They told me it was against Dr. K's policy to release a pt's med records before seeing them. I told B.L. MA. law states I have a right to my med. record. They said they weren't in yet, I reminded them of their numerous calls. 11/07 I arrived at B.L. to pickup my lab results. Dr.K refused to release them, saying he could be held liable. The police were called as I was not leaving w/out my lab results. Dr. K finally agreed to release them to my Internist, I signed a release form, the papers were faxed to my dr.'s office. I reviewed the lab results with my internist, Dr. James Nolan, (Dr. K holds a Ma license in E.R. & Internal Med.) he cautioned me on taking DHEA & hormone replacement.
I question Dr. K’s Body LogicMD franchise practice: Ordering pre-paid standardized lab tests, w/out seeing his pt's, is he getting a kick-back from Q.D.? Prescribing multiple costly vitamin supplements that are available only through his office. Refusing to release pt’s lab results prior to seeing them, potentially losing $495, 1st. visit fees.
This is not how medicine is meant to be practiced. Regardless of whether it's alternative medicine or conventional medicine, practicing medicine without integrity is a scam that should be exposed. Dr K is running an alternative medicine franchise where by he is making a mint on people who are suffering with conditions from which they are seeking an alternative to conventional medicine. Dr. K’s practice is unethical and should be investigated.
