i had an incident while i was visiting my mother at Baptist Health South Florida near 88th st. I had just came back from over seas in iraq and yes i am a veteran who is service connected for anxiety dissorder, insomnia, and depression and while there at the hospital in December 20 2009 I had a panic attack while inside the hospital, a nurse took me to the front of the building where ppl check in and i told them i suffer from panic attacks that all i needed was some water and to sit down, so they proceeded to get my name and well my mother had just gone in so they linked my parents address to my name, no i dont live with them i actually live in houston, Tx. I get all my medical needs done at the Michael E. DeBakey VA hospital in houston. So i told them that i did not want to be admitted. I was sweating profusly and dizzy so they took me against my will to check my blood pressure thats when i said enough is enough and took thepressure machine off my arm and walked out. They asked me if i wanted to go to a patient room and i told them no so i just went back to where my mother was and sat down till i felt better, a few weeks passed by and im getting a bill in the mail for 634.00. It has been paid by my insurance after i was harrased to give my insurance information yet i argued that i did not recieve payment and they were asking me to send my picture id because they did not have that information or my correct address. I feel that the hospital is doing bad buisness. Im a veteran and should have gotten better treatment not taken advantage because i was having a panic attack n recieved no service but a bill.
