Patient Comments (1)
in Shiloh, NJ |
The doctor and procedure were fine. However, trying to get the billing sorted has been horrific. I needed a letter from the doctor for insurance. I called after 30 days 'we're working on it' . After 60, called again-same answer. They stopped returning calls. I came to office with info to help with submittal and was told they finally had the letter. My bill reached collection last week and they still hadn't sent the letter. They said they'd try to mail letter but I don't need to call back!
