PLEASE READ IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING Dr. Eric Tabas
I went to this office yesterday for my annual as a new patient.
I am in a pinch for time since my IUD expires next month and I needed a quick turnaround.
I started filling out the paperwork, when I got to the last page and it was an arbitration agreement.
I don’t know about you, but that is a red flag. I then went to search him, where I read some very suspect reviews–here is what was consistent between the reviews:
1. He does NOT have a nurse present during the examination.
I just moved from New York where it is the law to have a third party present in the examination room especially if the doctor is male.
NY even enforces this in urgent care.
2. He takes a Polaroid of you when you’re a new patient to keep on file (why the f*** do you need a picture of my face to examine my lady parts) you’re not an orthodontist.
3. Back to the arbitration agreement–this is very one-sided protection just for the doctor.
It basically states that you cannot sue for medical malpractice.
If something goes wrong, you go to an arbitrator (& God knows how long that process would be).
4. A fair amount of people also seemed to have issues with the billing department double-billing them and then going to collections very fast and not appealing any cases.
Not to mention… The office is super creepy and he himself seems to also be.
I did not even end up going to this appointment. I faked a work emergency.
I was so creeped out by what I read that I left.
I would rather my IUD expire inside my uterus than have this guy even breathe the same air as me.
