I had a sleep study done and was told it would be $400. Once the doctor added his charges for reading the report, it was over $1300 because of an addition study (I supposedly needed ??) and his charges. Six months later, my doctor finally gets the results which were only valid for 6 months so I need an updated test! I’ve paid my bills, but I continue to get final notices. I’ve called, left messages and get no response. What a waste of time and money!

Very unprofessional doctor who vocalizes his personal opinion about non smokers and vegetarians. IF you have COPD or Emphysema & are a female, ex-smoker & a vegetarian be prepared to be verbally abused. He was so wrapped up in this instead of getting my PFT test results , or performing any kind of test to make sure the medication that I was already on & he was prescribing the whole time of my visit (instead of talking to me) was the correct med & not going to overdose me. Worse dr. ever
