I was a patient for 6 years with this practice. The medical service was just ok but I stayed with them because of the hassle of moving practices and arranging transfer of records etc. They always showed a marked tendency to prioritise earnings over my health. I ran out of a prescription for my condition, and attended the clinic late one evening without an appointment. I stupidly thought that being a long term customer I could be squeezed in for the 5 minutes it took to write a prescription. Silly me. The receptionist was obviously having a bad day and could only say repeatedly "you must have an appointment to get a prescription" not once but 4 times. I asked her if I could be fitted in and she indicated that I could wait and see. After about an hour a female doctor came out and had a coffee break for ten minutes or so. She and the receptionist both had a laugh at my predicament and treated me with disdain as if I was a drug addict trying to game the system. I left without the prescription and in desperation went to my pharmacist who supplied me with my medications until I could get a prescription. I went back to brindabella family practice the next day for the prescription and was charged $90 for the privilege. Scam and rip off. I left the practice that day. 6 months later they rang to make an appointment for a routine checkup as demanded by my condition. They hadn't even checked to see if I was still their patient, all they were concerned about was the cash flow dictated by their 'practice management program'. Don't go there. Ever. The greatest concern they ever showed was for their cash flow rather than then health of a long term patient. Disgusting parody of client service.

All the advertising doesn't mention that you will be charged a foreign exchange fee every time you do business with this 'australian' company. Stay away.

I swear by L L Bean. They do what they say they will do, the products are good, no hidden charges.

Recently heard the president of Alibaba explain the vision for global expansion, and it ticked all the boxes. Well done Alibaba.

The 'free' trial isn't. There is a hidden charge. To cancel the service you must call a telephone number in the Us even if you live half a world away. An email is considered a legal document but my fax doesn't recognise this. I question the legality and the ethics of this procedure and I am sure that this type of sharp practice no doubt enriches the company but it spreads a revulsion of american business practices. I do not understand why anyone who values their one self worth would work for a company that treats it's customers as another few dollars to squirrel out and make the month's numbers. Disgusting and disgraceful conduct and I am not sure it is legal.
