Had some pain in my back for a long time. Then one day I stumbled on this website called www.healthquest.us while I was looking for some clinic to treat this. It had several positive reviews there, which you know made me think of all the good thing about this clinic. And I decided to go for it without giving it a second thought. Obviously, when you have only web to research you can’t do much. You got to rely on your instinct and take the battle ahead from there. This is how it is.
I went to the clinic after fixing an appointment with Dr. Sol Cogan. He looked really weird for the first time. But I ignored. You can\’t just you know believe the first impressions in situations like these. So, I let go of what I had started building on my mind for him. He evaluated my back for a while and advised me a couple of tests. These were quite you know expensive, but you know I was not that smart then to understand the whole trap. After a few days when I came back, he went through my reports quickly and with a sad face said that it is gonna be a bit complicated case. Exactly!! I had a quite anxious face then…you know…I mean this is what happens to you when a doctor breaks something to you like that.
He told me about some surgery to get rid of disc I had in my back. It also included fusion of the spine. I was good with this too but you know Dr. Cogan changed the track immediately here and told me about some tools and machinery he had will be more beneficial to me than the surgery he was talking about. Okay. I was like oh do i have to choose one of them now?? You are a doc…I will obviously go with what you have got for me…right?? So I said yeah…that second option is cool for me. Now…this treatment had some 22 sitting I had to go through. To be frank…I did not mind. Why should I have??? I haven\’t come across his hidden instinct by then that I was about to realize later in the story.
There were ups and downs during the treatment. The pain was sometimes no where but at times it was at the peak. I was quite confused. The treatment was about to get over in a couple of weeks and there was no sign of a permanent healing. Then finally it all got over…and I told this thing to Dr. Cogan…who did not pay much attention to what I was saying. There was pain still there and the treatment had ended. When my Dr. Cogan finally got to know what I was saying he told me to get into one more treatment. It was expensive as well. I could not have done it but he advised me to do only once for a while only. It according to him was safe and adjustment treatment. I paid for it also…because you know I was by now too into it and wanted to get rid of it at any cost. Got it done also but to no avail. The pain was still there, and it was in the pink of health. Even those two 5-minute adjustments could not help. They were just waste of money and obviously time. I was you know kind of started understanding Dr. Cogan who with his failed treatments had disappointed me now. When i complained him about this he suddenly turned into something else. His attittude was like that he had done some kind of a favour to me. He said that the papers i had signed in the beginning had some sort of a clause that stated that the money in case is non-refundable. Ohk. So, what next huh??? Do I need to go through this treatment again and pay for all the bullshit just to save a few bucks more?? I am jot asking money back…all i want is relief from the pain..that is my right…huh. But that was not done. He simply passed me to some other doctor. I don’t believe him now. The doctor he was referreing me to could be like him…and i am not in any mood to you know get fooled twice.
After a couple of weeks, my research to finding a good doctor for my pain got me to a man living some miles away. Coincidentally, he too had consulted with Dr. Cogan at his clinic Health Quest. Me and him had the same case. This guy who goes by his first name Mark shared his account of horror at the clinic. He had the same story to tell. After a number of everal sittings, there was no relief from pain at all. He too paid a lot of money….the treatment was too expensive from the begining. At the end of the treatment, he too had to go though adjustment treatment at extra cost….refusing to which led to the weird attitude of the doctor. In his case though, Dr. Cogan had got his chiropractor sessions free. But that is not an excuse for a poor treatment and fleecing. Dr. Cogan kept on harping about how he helped Mark get rid of charges of chiropractor sessions. Unbelievable!!! That means this doctor is habitual offender. He traps people with the same intention of fleecing them all if their bard money. He makes all his patients sign some shit papers with some tricky clauses and that is it. Mark told me that this guy has cheated on many more people. Then how come i could not know about this in the beginning. May be those who had suffered from him did not write reviews about Dr. Cogan on forums like these. As a result, me and Mark had to bear all of this. I am doing my duty now…do not go to this clinic. Rather find something better than this.
