Made an appointment which took about 3 weeks, came to my appointment for them to tell me the dont accept my insurance which i never had an issue with anywhere else, then i said ok i will pay cash to be seen which they said was fine and then said the doctor was going to charge me $1,000 to have a scope view something, keep in mind i have not even been taken in the actual doctors office yet, this is just what the doctors assistant was saying on the phone, then said to go somewhere else. Terrible

I was referred to him by another Dr. due to me having dizziness and nausea. We were all hoping it was an inner ear infection. He sent me to get a CT scan without explaining the reason only that it wasn't my ears. Tuesday I had my CT scan and on Friday night at 5:45 pm I received an email with my results, no contact from any medical staff, I read and looked up all the words I needed only to learn I have a tumor on the pituitary gland. It is Tueday and I still haven't spoken to him.
