RANDY S. KIMMELMAN DO South Florida Surgical Specialists, LLC3467 W Hillsboro Blvd, Suite BDeerfield Beach, Florida 33442P: 954-574-0252 AROGANT UNORGANIZED DOCTOR NO COMMUNICATION SKILLS VERY POOR HEALTHCARE PROVIDER Deerfield Beach Florida!!. I had been seeing this Doctor for 2yrs for treatment for hernias & reconstruction of my abdominal wall. Besides my complaint as to his healthcare and putting me in risk of serious medical issues I have the following complaint. COMPLAINT: I have health insurance but always when I went to this doctor over the last two years had to pay a u201cco-payu201d which was $100.00 plus, as well to any referrals or to my Primary care physician, hospital, ect, plus my deductible. At the end of each year my deductible resets to zero paid and I start all over again. I always had Health Insurance and always paid when asked any u201cout of pocket feesu201d for over two years. I am, and I am classified as an u201cHealthy Patientu201d so it was not the case that I was so unhealthy I could not be operated on, I see it that this arrogant doctor has an incompetent staff and no respect for his patients, and does not know how to u201cscheduleu201d and or will not take the time and effort to do so. Kimmelman and his staff over a two year plus period cost me much because of their lack of communication and that they always scheduled things at the very last minute, when other medical professionals told me they could be done much more in advance. Twice I received calls over the last two years from Kimmelmanu2019s office and they told me that the doctor wanted me to come in to see him when in fact that was not the truth, but I could never know because I had no phone communication with the doctor. So twice over the last two years I scheduled the appointment as per their request, showed up on time, u201cPaid My Co-Payu201d waited up to an hour in the waiting room, then was called and was led to the exam room where I waited for another 15 to 20 min. When Kimmelman walked in and saw me, he asked u201cwhat are you doing hereu201d, I would tell him his office told me that he wanted to see me, he would have a couple word with his staff and tell me that I can leave, all within 5 min. So clearly it was all a waste of my time, money, and he charged hundreds to my insurance company on top of what I paid. I think this boarders on u201cInsurance Fraudu201d. Then there was the time that he scheduled a 5hr surgery which I was told I would be approximately 5 days in the hospital, so after planning my work and business Kimmelman decides to take a vacation, that was after my expense to testing and checking into the hospital, more un needed expense. My complaint to consumer affairs is to have Kimmelman u201cRefundu201d me and u201cMy Insuranceu201d company all the money he has wasted.
