I went to Dr. Katie Y. Zhang to have my IUD (contraceptive ring) removed on 6/16/2021. After operating on me for about 20 minutes, Dr. Zhang informed me that the IUD is stuck to my uterine and will be very difficult to remove. (There was an assistant throughout the entire process.) She told me that I need to undergo general anesthesia to have my IUD removed and that I should arrange the surgery as soon as possible. I was very scared, so I agreed to undergo the surgery right the way. After I left her office, I was bleeding and feeling a lot of pain. When I shared this news with my husband at home, he was shocked by it and suggested that I get a second opinion. I called the clinic, the doctor's assistant assured me that I need the procedure and again urged me to arrange it as soon as possible. On June 23, my husband schedule gynecologist appointment for me with Dr. Eva Li, so I went to see Dr. Li. She was able to remove my IUD under 5 minutes. Not only the procedure was painless and it also resolved my bleeding problem.
A month later, I received a medical bill from Dr. Zhang’s clinic for her treatment. Not only Dr. Zhang failed to remove my IUD and caused me to bleed for a week, she also pushed for an absolutely unnecessary procedure. I truly believe that I should not be paying her for all the fear, pain and trauma that I had experienced. I called her to explain my concerns, she insisted that she should get paid. In order to avoid the harassment and potential credit issues, I paid the money. Rockville resident May
我于6/16/2021去张耀华妇科诊所取IUD(避孕环）。张医生尝试了约20分钟后（全过程一直有助手）告知我IUD和子宫壁粘连，取出有困难，要尽快安排医院和麻醉师做全麻手术。我听了很害怕，就同意尽快手术。回家后告诉先生，他不同意这么急手术。从诊所出来我的身体一直流血和疼痛，我打电话给诊所，医生助手说这是正常的，并催尽快手术。6月23日，先生安排我去看另一个妇科医生Eva Li, 她很快取出IUD,全程约5分钟，无痛，而且不再流血。7月份开始收到张医生诊所帐单，我认为张医生没有帮我取出IUD, 而且给我造成恐惧和伤害（流血一星期），并试图诱导我做一个不需要的手术。她不应该收我的钱。我曾经打电话和她沟通，她坚持要收。为了避免催帐的骚扰，我还是把钱付了。 Rockville 居民 May
