The wait can be long, but the service is so worth it. I drive a long distance just to see them. I usually have panic attacks when seeing new doctors, but they were so caring that I didn't need to take my anti-anxiety meds.

Similar situation as others. Visited ER, was seen by Triage nurse only. Left before seeing doctor. Doctor sends bill for 450$ (for services not rendered) - Insurance covers bill. Doctor sends separate bill for 450$ - threatens to send to collections if not paid.

I wasn't happy leaving this office. I felt laughed at and my concerns were dismissed. It's a new and ongoing pain that has me worried. The doctor made me feel stupid for asking about it. I don't plan to return. I was told I'd receive a referral for a specialist in the mail, too, and never did.
