American Anesthesiology, services provided by their Richmond Anesthesia West End Practice are the most unethical, unprofessional group in not only the Nation but the World.

I have paid EVERY BILL they have sent, and i have Credit Card Receipts for them all, and yet yesterday i get a Bill for over $1,900.00 from a COLLECTION AGENCY 'FROST-ARNETT out of Nashville TN. Phone number for Frost-Arnett is 615-647-9129 (representing american anesthesiology) and they are AWFUL to deal with. I have been diligent in paying All of my Bills and it is almost putting me back in Cardiac Arrest having to deal with American Anesthesiology,.....
