Fresenius keeps messing with my time too. I got fed up and filed a complaint with the NKF ,and had it changed back.

The only thing important to Fresenius is the 7k they bill our insurance every time our *** sits in that chair. We are nothing more than a bunch of cash cows

Insurance

I did not have a complaint. I asked for assistance in filling out a medicare form. They provided the service in a prompt way. They were polite and answered my request. I have no negative comments for the service provided.

*** in pants

Original review updated by user May 12, 2021
We heard that Fresenius will not support a patient who goes poo in his pants during treatment. Either the patient gets taken off dialysis and sent home in his poopy pants or the family must come to the facility to clean him up. Claim as an outpatient facility don't provide personal cares. Even though staff brags about having CNA experience. Fresenius is becoming more cruel to patients with each passing year. *** happens!

Better patient care. Respect for people. *** happens!

Horrible staff, poorly managed

The staff at the Knoxville and Sevierville TN locations are some of the most unprofessional and poorly trained people I have ever been in contact with. They sit around and text, flirt, gossip among each other, they discuss patient information and give opinions on certain patients. I have seen nurses who treat people like garbage. They have no compassion for these patients. They don't follow up on care. Equipment isn't maintained. Home dialysis patients fall through the cracks. Any on call nurse will not return your call for hours. It's bad enough to suffer from renal failure. But to be treated with such disrespect is unbearable.

User's recommendation: Find a better facility.

For the past two years, I have been telling my clinic I need to be out of the chair and out the door by 10:30 am due to my driver's work schedule. Lately it has been a hassle, with me basically begging the techs to take me off on time. I have had them just walk away,...

RECENT SUB PAR SERVICE

Recently was told by a social worker at a FRENSENIUS dialysis unit That said patients were to have a small BUT thoughtful THANKSGIVING & CHRISTMAS celebration ( due to the pandemic) but as of January 1st 2021 said patients got -NOTHING not so much as card!.. oh update: Patients did INDEED get a CHRISTMAS CARD! on December 23rd 2020& it was EMPTY SAD

User's recommendation: GO TO A DIALYSIS UNIT THAT TREATS ITS PATIENTS WITH RESPECT AND DIGNITY ESPECIALLY ON HOLIDAYS.

THE TRUTH

I WAS TOLD BY A FRESINIUS TECH THAT WE THE PATIENT IS JUST A NUMBER. THAT IS WHY THEY WANT YOU IN THE SEAT....NOT BECAUSE YOU NEED THE TREATMENT TO LIVE BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY MONEY. FRESINIUS DOES NOT GIVE A DAMN ABOUT THE PATIENTS HEALTH. IN THE WINTER IT IS WARMER OUTSIDE THAN THE INSEIDE. EVEN THE TECHS AND NURSES COMPLAIN THAT THEY ARE COLD AND HANDS ARE FREEZING. THAT IS WHY SO MANY PATIENTS GET PNEUMONIA AND HAVE TO GO TO THE HOSPITAL. PATIENTS ARE AFRAID TO ASK QUESTIONS OR COMPLAIN BECAUSE OF RETALIATION. REMEMBER YOU HAVE TUBES IN YOUR ARMS AND ANYTHING N]CAN BE INHECTED INTO THEM

User's recommendation: ASK FOR WHAT YOU NEED. HEAT IN THE WINTER...AIR IN THE SUMMER.

Taking advantage of Seniore Citizen

I required a medication ,which they normally supply, with a cost 2 1/2 times from a local Pharmacy. I questioned the charge, and informed them I would refuse acceptance. Thar response"You cannot do that". I was then approached by a member of Fresenius &;;; asked "If I made morethan$3000. amonth & would have to show my bank statement to prove my income. I called prox. 7:15 am ,spoke to a rep & discussed the relevance of my income in this matter. She saw things my way & informed me that she would cancel the order for my Rx. Allowing meHappy to go elsewhere.

User's recommendation: Check things out before accepting a charge.

Cause me to miss a session

I have a 5:30 am session, received a call from the center not to show up until 8:30 am due to bad weather. There wasn't any bad weather, all sunshine and not one drop of rain. Come to find out that patients schedule after my chair time were permitted to have an earlier time to receive treatment. By changing my chair time caused me to miss a treatment session. This is my health that Fresenius is taking lightly. Truly unprofessional dialysis center, and highly disappointed.

User's recommendation: Avoid this center.

Poor treatment

I have been doing dialysis for 3 and a half years and there is a tech that has treated me like crap from the beginning. I complained to the NEW manager, and he said he would take care of it. Well since then they moved my starting time later and now they will not hold my access site anymore. She gets by with it, and then they take it out on the patients. I am serously considering a different place! Please respond!!!

User's recommendation: Don't go to Fresenius.

Techs and nurses working in other Fresenius Clinics.

If Fresenius is concerned about patients health then why is their nurses and techs allowed to work in other clinics? These staff members are working in New Orleans and other high risk areas for extra pay but what about the patients who are been exposed to these workers that may be exposed to someone with the virus? In my opinion the company is not protecting patients but adding more stress. Who if anyone or checking staff every morning like they are doing patients or is Fresenius workers immune to the virus? Law suit waiting to happen if a worker expose a patient. FRESENIUS WILL IGNORE THIS MESSAGE BECAUSE IT'S NOT IN THEIR BEST INTEREST.
