Review for Nevada Center for Biomedical Research, Reno, NV, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

In 2011 my son and I were notified that we had been awarded a full Scholarship/Sponsorship to travel to. be seen evaluated tested and treated by WPI and their staff including Dr. Fredericks. All costs were covered and we only made the long trip up there because we had been chosen and awarded this from WPI and we were very ill and it presented a ray of hope for recovery of some life quality to my son and me. We made the long exhausting trip with my parents paying for all the fuel lodging and food. They have not yet been reimbursed for their costs. We were not received well by the staff at the WPI clinic and thus went directly to Annette Whittemore office. She personally assured us we would be treated with the utmost courtesy from then on. that we would receive our promised Sponsorship and all that it entailed and had been promised to us. She said to have ALL bills sent to her directly.We returned home and were discouraged to find that they were not going to fulfill the treatment for us. We were made more ill by the stress of the long trip.Then began receiving bills for blood draws we never gave permission for. These totaled over 4600.00 EACH. We forwarded to Annette as we thought the WPI Clinic had just made an error. These bills stated 4600.00 in costs for blood drawn from my son and from me and were marked " OTHER" and no explanation was ever given as to why and what they drew this amount of blood from us for. What they did to us was unethical and we just want them to do what they promised in awarding us the full Sponsorships.I am holding them to their promised Sponsorship and ask that they be held accountable to uphold as well what they awarded us in full.I worked hard for my good credit rating and am hoping WPI and Annette Whittemore will do the right thing and restore this to me.Thank you for your help in resolving this for us. WPI and Annette Whittemore need to honor the full Sponsorhips they awarded to my son and me and restore my good credit rating to me.
