No credit for payments and no help from office staff to resolve issue. I had receipts and no payments were indicated on my account. I had to contact off-site billing office and prove my case without any assistance offered from staff. No response about insurance authorization for eyelid surgery. I have called and asked when I visited about the payment issue.
I am so very sorry that we were unable to please you, J.D. Your insurance company twice denied our request for surgery, as they deemed it cosmetic. With persistence, we were able to get them to reverse their decision about one of the two lids. You had injections done that were not covered by insurance, and mistakenly thought that the payment for them should be applied to your outstanding health insurance deductible. The dates, money amounts, and office notes clearly show all this to be true.

Dr. Hudak says...

I grew up in Cincinnati, in a family that embraced Medicine and the Arts.  A third-generation physician, my mother was an ophthalmic operating room nurse who was known as a child prodigy on the piano, playing perfectly Rachmaninoff at five years old.  My grandmother, the love of my life, was a professional ballerina, invented tap-on-toe, taught a couple of the original Rockettes, and was the owner of a dance studio.  My grandfather, an Ophthalmologist, was first violinist in Cincinnati's Youth Symphony Orchestra and avid photographer and painter. My uncle, who was the first to figure out how the eye worked chemically (after describing fatty acid degradation and synthesis) and taught for years at San Diego's Medical School, loved to cook and was well-published in Gourmet and Bon Appetit magazines besides the professional biochemistry journals.  The product of this strong influence of  Medicine and the Arts, it was natural to be drawn to Oculoplastics.

I love what I do, and do my utmost to help my patients achieve what they desire in the way of eyehealth and facial rejuvenation.
