Thyroid Clinic Closes Without Notice

A clinic that offered free thyroid examines closed with out notice. One patient had a scheduled follow-up appointment Monday but found the doors looked an the office cleaned out.

Mary Ann Borgeson said that it looked like operators of Symphony Wellness at 135th and West Center in Omaha just vanished. Borgeson said, "I had blood work results coming back and they had my insurance information. Where are my medical records?"

The Douglas County Commissioner didn't think it was very professional for the chiropractor and medical doctor at the clinic to close over the weekend without calling her.

The office phone message implies the doctors are seeing patients. So Fact Finders sent an e-mail through the clinic website.

Chiropractor Shaun Connley replied with an e-mail statement. He said, "Not a single patient was or will be billed or asked to pay for blood work or medical services." He said a partner backed out so financial problems arose early on. Connley said "As I scrambled to get back rent paid my RN quit and without notice, my MD quit."

Connley said the clinic had only five patients and each patient chart is being held safely. He said a letter will be going out to patients explaining what happened and referral options.
