I understand you are upset about a balance after insurance payment. Even though we had a Pre-Determination, YOUR insurance company did not pay as promised. We have no control over the fact that they removed your deductible from the payment. You also indicate that Dr. Cushman is FANTASTIC yet you gave 1 star for level of trust in provider's decisions. PIease rate the office based on your actual treatment experience and not how your insurance paid as we had no control over that sir.
