    - in Pompano Beach, FL |

    I was seen by the dr a week ago and was told they would be authorizing a CT scan through my insurance company (24-48 hrs). A week passes without any phone call. I call requesting a phone call back. In the meantime I call my insurance company to discover they never even sent the pre-auth for my CT scan. I receive a phone call back and am told by the lady that she is extremely busy and will get to it tmrw-ya know because my pain for the past week is no big deal. Never again will I go there.
