Robert B Patel of New Jersey is a total scam. He is internal Medicine physician.
He is on call in Robertwood Johnson Hospital. The web shows he accept BCBS PPO. When I find out he does not accept BCBS and charges $3250.00 for the first visit in Robertwood Johnson Hospital and then $1250.00 in the subsequent visit. I talk to him about his absurd charges and post wrong information in the web.
I tell him I cannot afford such a absurd charge, he is not allow to see my wife. He admits he does not accept BCBS. However he tell me not to worry. He states that Robertwood Johnson is in network so he is in the network too.
He will work with BCBS. Since he states he will be in netword and he will be bounded the in-network rule, he continues to see my wife. But he continues to send absurd claims to BCBS without accepting the allowed amount from BCBS. He even charge $7200.00 for two subsequent visit and $2500.00 for 30 min discharge procedure.
This is equivalent to $5000.00 per hour. I met him or his partners several times in the hospital during his visit. He just ask several questions without really examine my wife. Any one goes to Robertwood Johnson must watch this Doctor.
Don't let him be your doctor unless he commits to a fixed reasonable charge. I am not sure he is a doctor or vampire.
