Pounds and Inches / Scam
After watching commercials on a local access TV network, I saw what seamed to be a PROFESSINAL diet clinic that would assist me in loosing those stubborn extra pounds around my middle. So I booked my appointment and was stoked that I would recieve a "detailed doctor supervised diet plan, on-site medication and support", I had no qualms about going. I was starting to look forward to hitting the beach and wearing my summer shorts. One week later, after following mapquests simple directions, I pull up to a run down-looking stipmall with black out tinted windows and an overall hesitant feeling. This was far different from the commercial. Hoping the inside would warrant some ease, I go in and its just as bad... a small shotty office with no one up front to greet me, the phone was ringing off the hook and the best part tho, was the sex toy catalog on the magazine table... seriously. I still signed in hoping it would get better, and determined not to have wasted a day off of work, gas money and a vision of me in my new summer bathing suit. Within 15 min I was sitting in a back room being weighed, measured and given a list of services they offered. I asked when I would see the doctor because I had some health questions, he was NOT IN THE BUILDING! And the new policy is that, medication or supplements were no longer given at the facilty "as of last week", so I would have to find a pharmacy that carries them. You think they would have mentioned that when I made my appointment!! $ 85 dollars later, my detailed diet plan was a 3 page xerox of basic foods and there generic calorie counts (not all were correct), do no activity that would make me gain muscle weight, hold my questions to the next appointment and The dr. would call in my prescripton to my local pharmacy so it would be there when I get home. I drove back to town very disspointed and not suprisingly the pharmacy hadn't recived a anything for me. I called the facility and they told me that it would be a 24 hours wait for the doctor to call in the prescription!! They hung up on me at that point, stopped awnsering the phones and since they already had my money... I had to wait it out. 20 hrs later my prescription was there and I have yet to recieve a return call from them. I was so aggravated by the situation that it never even occured to me, how did you get I prescription if the doctor never even saw me?? ???
