Patient Comments (1)
Traverse City, MI |
Took my daughter to him for confirmation of an eye mobility problem. He spent less than 4 minutes with here and billed us for 3 separate procedures we didn't ask for. Claims they were necessary. I fail to see how these could even be performed in the 4 minutes he was in the room! Based on the time he was there vs the bill he charges well in excess of $1000/hr. There are two types of doctor: Those that want to help people and those with $$ in their eyes.
