Body Imaging Firm Accused of Marketing Scans to Folks Who Don’t Need Them

One more reason for the American consumer to distrust the healthcare industry.  In HealthLeaders Media:

In the last two years, Heart Check America has made free heart scan sales pitches to tens of thousands of Americans in five states, bringing in about $30 million in sales revenue, according to its manager, David Haddad. But recently, the company has come under fire from patients, regulators and medical experts. In scores of consumer complaints, Heart Check America clients have accused the company of using pressure sales tactics inappropriate for a healthcare company.”
