Consumer Complaint: I had received XXXX XXXXXXXX back in 2013. After the XXXX was completed I began having complications with my XXXX so I went back to my doctor for a review.
It was determined that the surgeon had damaged my XXXX XXXX during the original XXXX on my XXXX. He offered to do another XXXX to repair the accidental damage done from the first XXXX at no cost to me. I agreed and the XXXX was preformed. Some time later I started receiving bills from my doctors office for the secondary XXXX preformed. After calling my doctors office and explaining to them what had happened and why the second XXXX was needed they agreed to stop billing me. Later after having my credit report pulled I noticed that my doctors office had sold the debt to a collection agency. I never agreed to this debt and I have been unable to have it removed from my credit report.
