John Cottam, MD Tampa Florida

Complaint: I went to Dr John Cottam, a dermatologist, on 3/17/11 because of a rash on my neck. He did a skin swab on my neck that he said would be tested by Quest labs. Before I left the office I asked how much I owed and the nurse said “Nothing.”” I asked for my lab results 2 weeks later and was told by the Dr’s. office it wasn’t back yet. I called again in April and was told to come in on 4/7/11 to get my lab results. I brought a HIPAA compliant request form for release of my medical records

Address: signed and dated it and handed it to the nurse at Dr. Cottam’s office. She gave me a couple papers and when I got home I noticed the print was so light I couldn’t read it. She had not given me any lab reports. She said they still didn’t have them. On May 27

Website: 7/1/11 and 7/5/11. I gave this doctor a self addressed stamped envelope to mail my lab reports in. I mailed a complaint to the Dept of Health and Human Services/Office for Civil Rights

Phone: 2011 Dr Cottam sent me a bill for $59 for the one office visit on 3/17/11. It said he would charge a $10 late fee if I didn’t pay the bill within 20 days. I sent Dr Cottam a letter stating I had asked how much I need to pay on 3/17/11 and his nurse had told me nothing. I said I did not ask him to extend me “”credit”” and therefore I wouldn’t pay him any late fees. I reminded him that I was still waiting for my lab results and that when he sent me my lab results I would pay the bill. I sent 2 HIPAA request forms to Dr Cottam. I requested my lab reports on 4/7/11
