Ratings for Dr. Mark S. Cheiken
This is a word of warning, more so than a rating. I did not see the doctor - I did not get that far - so the ratings are intended to be neutral. However, Dr Mark S. Cheiken and his practice requires you to write down your Social Security number, in addition to photocopy of your driver's license and insurance card. Further, if your insurance is through another person, they will require you to supply that person's Social Security information as well. They will not provide you with treatment if you refuse. From what I can gather, there is no legal requirement for this collection. And if you do provide it, there is an increased risk of identity theft. Staff tried to claim that "just like a bank" this was required. For obvious reasons, doctor's office does not bear comparison to a bank. And there was no risk of non payment, as payment is required at time of visit. If identity theft is something that concerns you, you may want to consider this information before you visit.
