Unknown to me the insurance company made a keystroke error. I was told to make an appointment with Bloomfield Institute of Therapy. Great, I’m out of inpatient and on my way to outpatient recovery. Upon arrival I was given the new patient info form to complete. I have a fair idea of the PT billing amounts to an insurance company. You automatically have certain expectations. First I notice that the form is: off center on copy paper, re copied enough times that there are copy marks and smudges everywhere. Move on dude. OK.
The form is one page and crowded, two pages would have been nice. Oh here we go … try fitting your address et.al. in these spaces. Good luck. Just a first impression. I am going to say that the room is depressing.
I am then directed to one of the small office rooms to speak with a Therapist. The conversation was probably about why I was there. I don’t remember specifically. I do clearly remember that a one point he said to me “I don’t think I’m going to like you.”. That erased all of the conversation before and after. As I rise to leave, he hands me a page of exercise diagrams that can be done at home. The same over copied, off center, streaked appearance as the first paper.
One call to the Insurance Company cleared up everything, I failed to appear at my next appointment. When I finish therapy I will post and tell you where and how it went.
