When you dial 1-800-ASK-GARY, you ring up big bucks for Gary Kompothecras, whom Bloomberg Businessweek exposes in a November 2011 article as “a chiropractor who has grown wealthy and gained prominence in Florida catering to car-accident victims.”
Kompothecras’s company, Physician’s Group, has plastered billboards with the toll-free number all over Tampa Bay, Orlando and Jacksonville in an effort to snare accident victims. A phone center sends people to a network of 50 or so treatment clinics that file PIP claims. Callers are also referred to attorneys, many of whom send people to clinics in Kompothecras’s network, even if those clinics are more expensive.
It’s a big-money game. The ASK-GARY network spends $12.6 million a year to advertise its toll-free number, according to Nielsen Holdings. In 2010, it paid $1.2 million for the naming rights to the amphitheater on the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa.
