These people are horrible. They came to my home after surgery. They told me that with my insurance I would be paying $1 and change for Physical Therapy and $4 and change for Visiting Nurse. They never gave me copies of any paperwork just had me sign on their laptops. After home care was finished, they sent me a letter of no explanation of visits with an exorbitant amount due. When I called for an explanation and copies of the documents I signed They said they would not send me copies and I should have known what my insurance coverage was. Nasty nasty people!

Horrible experience! A supposed physical therapist came to my 86 year old father's home today. Her assessment: he is not eligible for in-home p.t., even though he is 86 and HOMEBOUND and has a physician's order! I, unfortunately have to work for a living, so I was not able to speak with this non-professional and by the time i got home, this scam of an agency was closed for the day. I did get to speak with the (USELESS) manager on call. A WASTE OF MY TIME! These people are horrible and do not care about the patient. If you are unfortunate enough to have to deal with them for an elderly person, MAKE SURE YOU ARE THERE THE ENTIRE TIME TO ENSURE THAT YOUR LOVED ONE IS NOT BEING CONNED BY THIS SHIP OF FOOLS.
