I spoke with this doctor for 5 minutes where I was told I had a torn tendon in my finger. I was told I needed to splint my finger for 10 weeks. I explained that I had already been splinting my finger but the doctor insisted I use their splint. The doctor left and had the nurse wrap my finger with the splint. Received a bill for $1,100 for a 2 minute procedure.
