I went to Dr Rankin as he was Precertified by my insurance to cover the surgery - my Silicone Implant had ruptured from a mammogram. Still sedated from Surgery and he tells my spouse to pay up front and then he will reimburse when insurance paid. Only $1,000 of $6,000 reimbursed. Not told this prior to surgery. Also left silicone in & caused infection of the chest wall. Had 8 months of antibiotics, unable to work. Extensive scarring & pain. Scheduled for a 3rd surgery in 2 wks since Dr Rankin's to try and remove more of the silicone that is causing problems.
Worked in the same hospital. I chose Dr Rankin as he was an in network provider that my insurance precertified the surgery. I went with a provider through my insurance in case of a complication. His nurse, Pam was fired over the incident. Still yet to be compensated.
