Victoria Smyntek – Sep 25, 2021
Doctor is decent - seems knowledgeable but saw me late, rushed through the appointment and connected me with an office staff member who said to call back for my other questions and they never answer. The worst part is the billing. Was told my self-pay cost would be $350. I got coverage right before my appointment and used insurance - After being billed for close to $1200, I had to pay $360 after plan discounts. Seems like every other practice these days that want to nickle and dime you for everything. Want to clean your ears? That'll be $105. Want to look in you nose with an endoscope? That will be $410. Want to to a comprehensive hearing test? That will be $297. Not going to this office again. At least give your patient the time if you are going to bill for 45+ and only see them for 15 minutes.

I had excellent results after my visit with Dr. Bueller. Two previous attempts at a primary Dr. could not remove my deeply embedded ear wax. She removed a pebble like build up almost painlessly, and tested me for a BPPV issue. My hearing is actually improved, and now my symptoms of vertigo are nearly gone! Very friendly staff as well. Glad I found them.

Dr Scotch explained everything he checked and did a very thorough exam. I have been to numerous doctors about my sinus issues and was going to give up but decided that I would try one more time. Turns out all that stupid “post nasal drip” is because I’m apparently allergic to everything that grows outside. But not one single doctor bother to do that simple allergy test so I have suffered needlessly for decades. I had given up on doctors but Dr Scotch has restored my faith that they don’t all just blame everything on age. Now, I feel that I will actually be on a path to recovery.

Karen – Jul 14, 2021
I did extensive due diligence prior to a test to get cost info, find out all the medical codes and confirmation that those codes would be covered by my insurance. I needed this info to decide whether to proceed with the test. I sent multiple emails, messages in the patient portal, and recorded voice messages (because they never answer the phone). I never received the info so had to cancel. Finally received info, rescheduled, & paid quoted cost on day of test. Weeks later, I received a bill for a much higher cost. I found out they added another code without informing me. When I asked why they didn’t inform me when I went through all that extensive due diligence to get this info, they said they made a “mistake” and “forgot” to include the 2nd code originally. So, why would I pay for that 2nd code due to their mistake? They refused to provide a credit for the 2nd code. Stay far away from a doctor with such incompetent & unknowledgeable office staff, who will make you pay for their mistake
