Whenever I would talk about having problems with speech, memory loss, losing my balance, losing the feeling in my hands and feet or that the botox didn't seem to work it was attributed to my anti-seizure medication. The solution was to double the amount of botox injected. I don't think he would tell anyone that their issues were attributed to some bad botox. I would also bruise every time I was injected. Only four if the injections were actually to my forehead. Two between my eye then two more under my hairline. The rest were into the sides of my scalp, the top and back of my head, my neck and then a few into my upper back. At a certain point the girl who used to handle all of the insurance and scheduling for botox appointments left the practice. When her replacement took over I was asked a few times if I would be providing my own botox?? Which I thought was strange and asked how could a person bring in botox.
They pled guilty to a civil claim filed by the govt to cover medicare insurance claims filed during the three years and of knowingly purchasing the off label botox from this supplier. Every year my botox was a major expense which I assume was not billed through my insurance carrier as being discounted. How is that not fraud? I'm glad the government got their insurance money back but private citizens who have insurance through our employers must just have to suck it up.
