oh, your doctor isn’t here anymore

A local medical practice actually collected an administrative fee from patients to help the practice defray costs. Germantown Primary Care Associates was forced to repay clients.

I was curious as to whether they were still in business. OK, I just like to mess with people. I called the medical practice (301-528-7110). The recording (and follow-up live person) identified themselves as Physician Associates of Germantown.

I asked, “Is this Germantown Primary Care Associates?”

No, this is Physician Associates.

Do you know anything about Germantown Primary Care Associates?

They changed their name.

To what?

Physician Associates of Germantown.

I felt like we were playing chess and she had me in check.

I must note that Physician Associates has various locations, and may have existed before GPCA’s little misunderstanding with the Maryland Attorney General.

According to internet phone records and Physician Associates’ website, the above medical practices both have the same phone number and address (19500 Amaranth Dr. Suite B).
