BEWARE! Dr. David Benson of Eye Physicians of Lakewood is very sheisty. They conduct unethical billing practices. DO NOT TRUST THEM AT ALL. They sent a bill to me for a visit from last year 2015; when I made the appointment, I was told they accept my insurance. A year later, I get a bill stating that they don't accept that insurance. Interesting to learn THAT a year later, especially since I had SPECIFICALLY called around Tacoma looking for a doctor who took my insurance. Very unprofessional.
