This place is a joke... the dont pay there employees and that's why some of there providers have quit or dont show up to work.. they also stop paying the employees insurance and 401 k but still taking it out of there checks... also if they get paid no funds in there accounts to cash the checks... Takes forever to get medical records for your children and they also own CKBH another place a joke...

not there fault. medicare and medicaid owe the millions of dollars and wont pay them. this is why its hard to find a doctor that accepts medicare and medicaid. they simply dont pay the docs for services rendered. paragon is about the only dr office that still accepts it. paragon is broke for this reason. they are about to shut down. the fedaral and state government is what is a joke. this country is turning into a joke. thanks obama.

thats some of it but the person that owns paragon also owns lots more offices and had to sale part of the company to another business that is hush hush noone is talking... this is from someone that works at the company in one of the offices so thats whats up.. the other offices are located in richmond.. anderson.. crab orchard. also they have a suboxone clinic... so it is part there fault if you only knew what goes on in the offices you would see.. people have had to quit because of the company not paying on time.. lost cars houses..

Could you name some for me? Everyone I called said enrollment was closed. If they are going out of business I need to find a decent place for my baby.

Dear Jon...Lol
Don't defend a company you know nothing about. Please learn proper grammar or just Google the difference between the words "there and "their. Sounds like you've benefited from a good Obama education over THERE! SMH. Paragon is foul

seems nothing has changed from the years in business. if you look close at their history... you will see this had been going on for a long long time.

I have 3 children and already found another Dr due to everything I've heard about them. I have one off my kids transferred and in the process of the other two. If your children are patients at Paragon find another Dr asap they are very close to going under.

Yes leave that place... I work there what's left of it... They are being sued by employees and pbi bank... They had to borrow money to turn our insurance back on.. Also they said some company is buying them ummm not true... They have lost some really good providers and people as well... If they don't pay soon there won't be any offices or dr left... They also have CKBH and that place is a joke as well.. Women's health closed cause Lori left and she was an awesome provider... Take your kids else were b4 it's to late and you can't get there records...if you look hard on this site you will see the back lines to the offices ...

I have worked close next to some of their associates and been a patient.I have urged friends and family members to find another source.Ordered blood work on me and when I went to the follow up appt.the dr. that treated me said while looking in my chart oh that was never ordered.When I had the blood drawn at the lab I had to have a lab request from the dr. to get that done.Pathetic!I understand it does happen and would have accepted that but knowing other instances with other patients and their experiences with paragon I came to the conclusion it was best to find someone else.I seriously wouldn't recommend them for anything other than a cold.

DO NOT GO TO PARAGON. THEY ARE HORRIBLE, RUDE, UNEDUCATED. My son was born a preemie, at his 9 month check up he weighed 15.5 lbs and they said by his first year check up he needs to gain 10 lbs. I can't force that upon him. He eats good everyday. He's just a little guy. THEY ARE RUNNING OUT OF SUPPLIES. THEY SHOULDN'T HAVE A DOCTOR LIKE THAT!!!!!

I agree don't go there... Still not paying there employees.. Plus they had to borrow 154,000. To get insurance back up.. All the staff are leaving or being laid off.. The Alexandria office has to be out by sept 1st... Dr pappas has evicted them for not paying the lease .. They can't buy any supplies because they owe money to the supply company...there going under .. Get your records and go somewhere else

Tried to get a sick child into Paragon today and was told that all offices are triple booked till after the holiday. No appointments available. Also, every time I take my child there, well visit or sick visit, I get a strange letter from insurance stating that they didn't get a prior authorization for the visit so they would not be paid. My biggest complaint, however, is their prescription policy. They only call things into pharmacies, no written prescriptions. It would be ok, but there is sometimes a 24 to 48 hour delay on the mess. When your child is sick, 24 hours makes all the difference in the world. Sometimes, the wrong stuff gets called in as well. If they would just write the prescriptions, we could double check them before we leave the office, then go straight to the pharmacy and get home faster with the child who doesn't feel well. They need some polishing for sure.

Cecelia gorham (practice manager in nicolasville and the owner's "friend" is the biggest liaer I have ever known in my life. Ann Jiles ,one of tthe owners, is a power hungry cold hearted bitch who is totally overwhelmed with her own importance...one of those people who likes to wrap her tongue around what she thinks are words noone else knows ..........even brags about firing her own father! I have never been treated as badly or lied to as much on any job as I was at paragon. I don't know what the outcome of this current investigation will ultimately uncover, but I do know that the staff I worked with were treated badly,lied to and pitted against each other by Ms gorham and the owners did nothing when incidents were reported. The staff were very hard working and did the very best they could under the circumstances. They are the people I am concerned about.......not the owners and lackeys who supported them to secure their own jobs.

Ive wondered about this place way back with my first visit.Im talking about the care.Several people I know left after a visit shaking their heads.Of course something was obvious with the staff too.Hard to hide that kind of chaos with everyone!!!I was very persistant in getting my daughter in law to change from them to another dr. for my grandson.
