Patient Reviews (1)
in Phoenix, AZ |
Dr. Galisky was a consult in the hospital. The surgery was without incident but the post-op visit to his office to have the stitches removed was less than satisfactory. I waited almost one hour and then he removed the stitches, said he would be back shortly to give me the lab results from biopsies but since I couldn't wait any more I never saw the results. I was then charged $145 for services never received.
Thank you for your feedback. We strive to provide information at every patient's follow-up visit in relation to insurance coverage and exact out of pocket costs. It is our policy to have all patients review paperwork explaining all costs to ensure a smooth follow-up visits. We apologize if you feel your experience was less than stellar. The overwhelming majority of our patients are very satisfied with their experience. We wish you success in your future pursuit of health and wellness.
