That's nice to file a complaint, but the system doesn't WORK!!!!!!! Why does the Federal Trade Comission have the Internet site they do an average person can't get the complaint to go through!!!!! I've tried for days even tried calling your toll free number and can't even get through to a person and it doesn't work well either how can someone complain now? I managed to file one a few years ago, but not now! Doctors and Hospitals are treating patients bad even talk how they HATE Obama Care and are going to fight it any and every way they can!!!!!! People especially older people go to hospital they are not treating them properly because they hate Obama Care. Patients aren't getting care Doctors doing very little to nothing and going around charging Emergency Room Dr. fees by billing through company in Florida. Have Medicare and supplement go to ER CO- Pay at Wellmont Holston Valley $150 all should pay. Well hospital has company in Florida send bill from place in Florida for $150 ER or Hospital bill and a almost $400 bill for doctor!!! They are making a killing literally by not treating patients like doctors used to and are supposed to get you in room send in PA few minute then Dr. comes in does't give you time to ask anything says your going home and walks out spend maybe 15 minutes with a PA and Doctor and don't want to do nothing, but send you home. This is how Wellmont Holston Valley, Kingsport, Tennessee treats patient especially elderly, middle aged especially on Medicare and even having a supplement insurance!!! Even the regular doctors are the same they need to have the CIA, FBI and Medical Board go over RECORDS and see how many people haven't been treated and sent home and ended up dying at home, rehab (nursing home) or hospital because they don't give proper health care now! Mad at President they talk about him in front of patient's like he is a dog and they say they are rebelling against the Government and Obamacare! I thought they took Oath to help people!!!! Help they all need to be investigated now before they cause more deaths!!!! They are sticking together like thieves don't want another doctor to get in trouble because the other one made mistake and killed one, lied when someone was severally injured in car wreck, nurse gave me a shot and me telling her it wasn't for me than blood pressure dropped to 90/40 and heart monitor alarm started going odd and blue line goes up left side and across top!!! PA saw her came running she was going to give me another shot and me telling her no I was having severe chest pains after other shot , but wouldn't listen the PA didn't go around desk (counter)room at the front of counter he jumped over and demanded her to stop I wasn't supposed to get any shots it they were meant for extremely sick cancer patient across the hall she laughed and told PA it was his fault and squirted the other syringe of medicine on PA's uniform. Preacher in area father to ER send him home told him father had mild heatstroke he will be fine. He takes father to Mountain Home VA Center Johnson City, TN,Hospital ER told he really had Major stroke Holston Valley doctors didn't want to treat or be bothered with him and sent him home to die. Neighbors relative had fuss with neighbor and got shot in leg went to Holston Valley they sent him right home with bullet still in leg well he tells family a couple days later not felling good going to lay down rest. They go to wake him up later he is dead from a blood clot from bullet left in leg!!!!Don't you think some investigations should be done especially why if someone is running fever they give people Tyenol and Tyenol 3 to get patients fever down low enough so they cab send them home or to a rehab!!! These people are sick and have fevers, but get the temps down so they can send them out ASAP and get rid of them plus more room and short nurses!!!!! Some people are afraid to go to hospital so many people have died! Help! Don't mention my name because it is the closest hospital and I'm sick and may go in I heard a Lawyer call a the Hosptial has really gone down hill and some of the doctors he called them the doctors of DEATH!!!!
