Ratings for Dr. Rosa A. Kincaid
2012 - Went for a basic routine annual medical checkup. Dr. Kincaid ended up charging my insurance >$6500 for "tests". Wrote claims in my medical entry that were complete confabulations and did not even closely relate to my condition (a bit of gastritis and typical aches and pains for someone who is 50 years old+). Added false reporting into my medical records, which is essentially the same as fraud, and could prove medically dangerous to me later. I filed a complaint of fraud with my insurance company. They ended up paying more than $5000 for a basic checkup without follow-up. Definitely will never, ever go see this "doctor" again. I find it surprising my insurance company still lists this Doctor as a primary care physician in my zip code. I don't know what is "practiced" here, but you might be better off going somewhere else. No, I didn't get any medical attention at all and ended up going to a more "real" doctor.
In my experience with Dr Kincaid I received excellent care and advice. I did not always follow through and it is my experience that if you don't do what the doctor ordered you can not expect to get the intended results. Dr Kincaid appears to be a no nonsense doctor which may not work in her favor.; my opinion and experience
In many ways, I am appalled at his professional demeanor. My visit seemed weird with some of the inappropriate things he said but I was too shocked to respond. He speaks as if he is at a bar casually making small talk. After waiting for an hour past my appointment, I just wanted to have the time done. I do not know if he does it with all his patients, but he seemed to be a little too casual in how he touched me. A heavy hand on my leg and then a small brush of my back during my exam made me feel awkward at the moment. Not only until I thought about it after leaving did I really know how I should respond to what he did.
When I first met Dr. Kincaid I was excited about her being a holistic doctor. My joy quickly dissipated. Dr. Kincaid is incredibly rude and insensitive. She put me on a special diet. When it was not working and I finally got back in to see her she criticized me for having done my own research on the diet. I looked at every peer-reviewed journal article that I could find and every one of them said the diet was complete bunk. She is in business to sell her products, not to support your health. She made me cry while in her office. Her office staff does have one employee who is very helpful and nice, but the other woman is incredibly dim and rude. Also, one time they tried to accuse me of not paying my co-pay. They only believed me once I brought in the receipt that the had printed for me and the credit card statement that showed the charge went through. I would highly recommend that you continue looking for someone else to be your primary doctor.
My wife scheduled a follow up appointment over a month in advance, complete with written reminder card from the staff. The day of the appointment, we showed up to find the office closed and locked with lights turned off. In addition, I have left 2 messages trying to find out what happened, and no one has returned my calls, it's been over 2 weeks now. IN ADDITION: Every appointment I have ever had with her (at least 4 appointments) I have had to wait anywhere from 45 minutes to over 2 hours PAST my appointment time. Doesn't get any less professional than that.
After multiple requests by myself, my insurance company, and LabCorp for the provider to submit medical reports to lab and/or insurance company, provider's office staff has yet to comply and it has been over 5 months since service. I have spent much of my own time on the phone with the doctor's office staff trying to get them to simply mail/fax the necessary report to my insurance and complete the claim, but the office staff has yet to do so and are quite unprofessional regarding this matter. I was referred to this doctor by a local vegetarian/vegan/raw food group that made claims to Dr. Kincaid's knowledge of alternative medicine. However, Dr. Kincaid's "knowledge" concerning diet seemed like she had only read a Wikipedia entry. I was very disappointed in the lack of advice I received and will not be returning.
