  1. I sent in a letter of compliant and the only thing you are saying is that you all do not have enforcement authority over improper business practices and/or wrongful termination?

    The letter that I sent to you was telling you about forgery that a company is par-taking in and you don’t have enforcement authority? So please tell me what do you do beside collect money and send out money? When I worked for you we had to be very conscience orientated employees about providers and their signatures. But I tell you that a company is signing the providers names on applications and you think I just want to tell you this because of wrongful termination? That is a criminal act according to our law and you just let them get away with it. I have witnesses that will testify to all the wrong that this company is doing. So you just let them get away with it?

    I have names that have been forged and I have people that will testify, that what I’m saying is the truth. So are you all going to ignore it?

    1. Hi Irene,

      You might consider contacting HHS if you need to file or follow up on a complaint (we’re not affiliated with HHS in any way.)

      Good luck!

  2. I provide the following information for your review and the character of Sono Bello Body Contouring. Let me say; this is a private practice that does not accept insurance, on that note they make the rules on a day -to- bases. They have outsmarted the bank and a billing company as well. Respectively, I hope you’re not the third person they deceive. Each time they succeed in this sick twisted con game, they celebrated another trophy on their desk. Also, it builds their confidence and ego, for the next patient to scam.

    December 1, 2016, I was given two separate contracts for two procedures totaling $10,000. December 20, the first was performed, the results were loss hearing, severe scarring and emotional and physical trauma. I notified the merchant to inform them I do not wish to proceed with the second surgery due to the outcome of the first operation.

    My life changed they alter the original contract to ten-thousand instead of 3000 and some chance, allocated money, issue medical records to the bank without expressing conversation or any consent. Bank employees question me about private information. According to HIPPA no consent form was ever issued or endorsed by the client. Medical records have fraud information, for instead. They noted recovery time; there was no recovery time, anesthesia, oxygen, intravenous, blood used, who performs surgery without these necessary tools. Medical records will show recovery ended 11: 20 am, Contact person receive client 12:00 pm. Where the client for 40 minutes? Method of payment recorded which does not match the bank statement. I’m requesting a dedicated expert to examine the entire case, not just the unexplained billing portion. According to HIPPA, HCPS, AMA OIG AND CMS laws, guidelines, regulations.Where is the actual laboratory report, where did the procedure happen? Do private practices do not have rules, standards, codes, and rules to follow; or can they do as they please, The patient informs practice she’s a candidate for keloids, knowing that she’s a risk? You performed the process anyway.

  3. A licensed practical nurse (not related to physician or insurance) used access to the HIPAA data to access my personal information and family. Non-medical related. Stalking me.
    Now what do i do?
