Never had a doc talk to me like this guy!, 1/31/2011

Please check out full review on Yelp.After doing research I realized his prices were a third of the average price of this procedure. Pretty awesome, but I wondered why. I work for a doctor, and... patients were always asking me about prices and even the docs. I work in Saratoga, pretty high end clientele, if they can ask why can't I? So, I thought let me ask the doc why the price diff. Just because I was curious. Well, this is when the ish hit the fan.I asked him why his prices were so much less than other surgeons in the area. I was careful not to use the word cheaper. Sales technique I learned at work. He became very defensive and said ""well I'll be happy to charge you more."" He also said he would be glad to take the money that the other surgeons wanted. Than he continued by asking me how much they were charging. I told him I didn't want to say. That's when he said he did not want me as a patient, and refused I than called back to ask for a copy of a quote sheet to give to a diff surgeon.The receptionist said she can fax it and she knew exactly what I wanted. I asked if she can also mail me a copy. Guess what, she said no, cuz she was already faxing one. WTF! Once again, I've worked in a doc office for seven yrs. Never would I say no to a request like that. But whatever!!!The receptionist called me back saying the doc refused to give me a quote sheet. I asked why she said she didn't know. That all he said was, "" I'm not doing that for her."" AAAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!!By this point I am heated. There is noway you can refuse me any part of my medical forms. Including billing information. I had to call back twice threatening to file a complaint with Hippa. I actually talked to the doc again and he continued to be out of line. Asking me ""what kind of question is why are your prices so cheap?"" I said ""sir I am not going to argue with you again,and that's not what I asked you, I just want my quote sheet."" He's now claiming he doesn't do quote sheets altogether. Basical
