Ratings for Dr. John R. Baird
Dr. Baird and his nurse practitioner only want one thing and that's paying customers, he has been in trouble with a lot of the insurance companies for over billing so they tend not to deal with him. He only want cash customers. So I go in for like my 3rd month and they say they are having problems with tricare and billing and I owe this and this today, I said well I wanna look at it before paying it they get irate and say we will email it to you. I never get it. I go back in my 4th month and they call me back except this time is different no urine screen it was a mouth swab test (google these test they are cheap and very inaccurate so much so they can't be used in the court system) so I go to the window they give me my test then tell me to go see nurse practitioner, mind you this was Wednesday which is new patient day as well so there's tons of people in the waiting room sucking on mouth swabs as well, I ask her why not the urine screen anymore she said they were cost cutting so my stick turns blue and we were finishing up I said do I just take this to the window she says here I'll take it.. Best I can figure is my stick went in someone else's tube and there stick went in my tube, I got a letter 3 days later saying my meds weren't in my system and I tested positive for cocaine!!!!! WTH!!! So I call them they say nothing we can do you've been discharged, so I go to labcorp and pay from my own pocket for a hair follicle test it goes back 9 months (it took roughly 2 weeks for results) but as I stated to them there was no cocaine and I only tested positive for my meds I was prescribed!! I took it right to their office and also had labcorp send him a certified copy to the office THEY WOULDNT EVEN LOOK AT IT! Thankfully I did this hair follicle or there wouldn't have been another pain management doctor on the planet who would have took me in for being discharged for this! My new doctor is one of the best in louisville he's amazing and he took my hair follicle results and took me right in.. after being at my new office and doctor for about 3 months I here biggin Baird got his self arrested and license revoked, for what else being crooked! So it goes to show you just cause your a doctor doesn't mean you can treat people any ol way because eventually it will come back and bite you.. I swear this man and his office are the worst!!
I have been dealing with fibro for over half my life been tossed from pain management like a rag dog been treated as if I lying been discharged because my doctor altrenated my pain meds month to month per her agreement I asked why I was told by office staff and I quote you are double dipping I didn't know what that meant and was told by office staff that I had two different pain meds. This was very wrong because my doctor prescribed them that way... So this. So this makes me seem like an abuser!!!! I was referred to DR. BAIRD AND HE UNDERTSTOOD MY PAIN DEPRESSION THAT GOES WITH CHRONIC PAIN HE AND HIS STAFF HAVE STRONG COMPASSION AND CONCERN FOR HIS PATIENTS !!! THE PROBLEM IS NOT WITH DR. BAIRD... BUT THE ONES THAT LIE AND FAKE TO SELL THEIR MEDS THOSE ARE THE ONES THAT SHOULD BE PROSECUTED
In the beginning I dearly loved this man. We talked about so much. I enjoyed my visits. I never dreamed he would turn on me but he did. Now I thank God he did because the amount of meds he had me on was literally destroying my body. I never failed a urine or pill count. I was fired because I called my ins. to see why they were not paying and found out that I didn't owe the thousand dollars I was billed for. He will be good as long as you pay. If you question, you're a gonner. This man is pure evil as he talks about God. Even Satan quotes scripture. Don't let him damage you, like he has me. Read other sites and reviews. This group is all about money and how to MAKE their patients pay or suffer. He seemed so very sincere in the early years but the only one he is sincere to is himself. FIND ANOTHER doctor while you can, PLEASE. He will get you at some point unless you can pay thousands above your ins. Many of us have seen his demonic side. It is ugly at best.
I have been a patient for almost a year here and only have ever seen the nurse practitioner, Bridgett who is great. I have been called before to come in for pill counts 911 no problem, but this time, I had a bad pain day and slept through the call and the message just said, "Please call us at ###-####". So I did when I woke up, but they were already closed. I called again the next morning first thing and they said I missed a pill count and that I had to do it within the 8 hours within the phone call. There are so many reasons why you could miss that call!! Anyway, A few days later, I got a letter in the mail stating that I had been kicked out of the program, don't call, don't come there, kiss their ass goodbye. Reason? MISSED PILL COUNT/NO ANSWER. How stupid is that!? Now I am so screwed because the one little pill I was getting from them is going to be so much fun to try and get from a new doctor before I run out and go into withdrawal. All Dr. Baird wants is the cash payers.$550a pop
Dr Baird - often comes in after opening time of 8:00 am as well as staff. I had many 8:00am appts and was still waiting in the parking lot waiting past appt time for Dr and staff to show up. Dr charges excessive fees for completion of forms (i.e. $300 fee to fill out continuing disability form total 2 pg. document with approx 10 questions. On one occasion Dr completed form during my exam (15 min time) and billed me additional $200 to complete form. STAFF - Billing is a joke. Consistently apply payments incorrectly or fail to bill Insurance at all. Have been denied service on appt date because billing claimed acct past due, but I found out that insurance had paid in full negotiated amount, but Billing would not even return my calls. Totally inept billing and bookkeeping staff. Dr also performs expensive tests such as DNA testing in lieu of metabolic panels (less costly) to check metabolism of drugs. Appears this Dr is more concerned with money than patient well being.
I too have had MAJOR difficulties with billing. They have charged me FULL price for over a year and gave me all kinds of excuses on why my ins would not pay. Then when I finally called the ins company, they said the office had not filed a claim in over a year! The office keeps giving new reasons why and they have now filed it wrong over and over again and have not paid me the money they owe me. When I threatened to call an attorney, they discharged me as a patient and filed two MORE claims wrong! I HAVE called an attoney, WHAS11 and am reporting them to the Medical License Board!!
The office staff is horrible! We had SEVERAL billing issues with them, but I always paid them promptly after reviewing bills. Once, my husband went to his appointment and they requested he pay on a bill that we had not seen yet. I refused and told them that I needed to review bills PRIOR to paying them. The office staff member became exceedingly irrate and told me that it is mandatory that I pay them some money even if I had not yet been sent a bill. I told them if they wouldn't oblige, then I was taking my business elsewhere. A week later we got a note in the mail saying they were terminating my husband as a patient because I had an attitude! This office was also consistently running late. Once we got stuck in traffic and called to tell them we would be 10 minutes late. Just because we were late, they made us wait 2.5 hours to be seen at close of business even thought they were 1 hour behind when we got there. We also could never get returned calls in an emergency. Horrible!
Stay away from this place. As long as you pay anything they say you owe, you're his best patient. If you question a bill that your insurance has already paid, you're gone without any meds to help you through the time it takes to find another doctor. If you don't believe me, then I feel sorry for you, a rude awakening is not far off. Please stay away him, he will hurt you , bad.
