Patient Comments (2)
in Salem MA |
Dr August did bloodwork on me for genetic testing during my second trimester. I insisted that all tests done must be covered by my insurance. I am pretty sure she knows that these test are not covered by insurance carriers because the carrier wrote me an explanation saying that there is no scientific basis for running these tests, and that they do not pay for it. One of her bills was for $489.00. The insurance company said the allowed charges are $409.00. They refuse to correct this. Nightmare!

Do not use this doctor. Does whatever she wants. Doesn't listen to patience. After I told her not to break my water she did it anyway. She ahould not be practicing medicine.
