Update: Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, BIG MISTAKE!
Happy New Year 2010
An update to my previous post about how I believed RIC (Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago) would help me get my life back!
Well, the joke is on anybody that believes in marketing, fancy websites and celebrity spokesmen.
I suffer panic attacks when I even think about the horrible experience with the institution. They are pegged as the #1 rehabilitation facility in the U.S. Yes, on paper but in fact, the opposite is true. The whole experience reminded me of what horror stories the disabled encounter on hidden cameras, behind the door 20/20, Primetime and other watchdog groups.
Since this is New Years day, I don't wish to expound on the nightmarish experience because in so doing, I would have to take a Xanax.
I have an appointment at Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale, Arizona next week. They are organized and kind when consulting me over the phone. RIC's employees were very disorganized prior to my appointment in Chicago. Their phone skills were unprofessional and rude.
Remember, I recommended that anyone with a disability should consider RIC to get their life back together! NO! DON'T!
They don't even follow HIPPA guidelines!
Enough! I will keep you aprised of my experiences with Mayo's. They have a TRACK record! Be blessed with good health!
