Patient Reviews (1)
in Henderson, NV |
Excellent doctor until it comes to insurance. I saw him twice, and then his staff realized I have a secondary insurance that they don't accept, though they do accept my primary. Result: he won't see me as a patient in future unless, according to his assistant, I divorce my wife. I blame the doctor either for creating a nonsensical rule or for failing to ensure that his staff understands the actual rule.
