Ratings for Dr. Timothy C. Childers
I WILL NOT RECOMMEND HIM TO ANYONE. Idk how else to explain in a short review what my grandma and my family went through this past month and a half.. Dr.Childers neglected our main concern that was a contributing factor in my grandmother's passing..today makes a week.. When she was admitted on May 26 with a low BP and infection she had a procedure done the next day that showed her tube was pulled out(most likely when he "paper clipped" her tube her 2nd office visit) and 1400mL of greenish fluid (bile)was drained. For weeks in the office after he had clipped her tubes we brought her stomach distention to his attention and got the same reply" im not worried about it" and not once mentioned infection (high wbc) from her weekly lab work.. He is impatient, arrogant and obviously does not like being questioned. I wish we got the same treatment as the other reviews which makes me think if they're from his friends, his office staff, or family members. If you have him as a surgeon please reconsider.
Dr Childers and his staff far exceeded my expectations! Every single person that was involved in the process (before, during and after) were exceptional and extremely compassionate. Dr Childers is an excellent surgeon and I would highly recommend him to anyone!
While the medical care was acceptable, the billing procedures are another thing. One year after my surgery I started getting bills. I was told by the billing dept that my plan had a high deductible. That was not true, they were not billing the correct company. I sent them the correct information. I did not receive any response to my letters or phone calls. Talking with Blue Cross the staff did not get prior approval for my surgery and had One year to correct this. They never did, now they are coming after me for the surgery bill. The bill has gone to collections due to the incompetent staff. The worst part is they won't even call me back. I would not recommend this doctor to anyone due to the billing procedures and the incompetent staff.
