I have never met a doctor that has so much care and concern for her patients as Dr. Sims!! She spent so much time with me and explained everything to a T!!
Altoona, PA |
After canceling ONE appointment very near the end of the year due to illness, I received a nasty letter signed by Dr. Sims that they had to "go through the bother and hassle of getting preauthorizaton, trying to contact you". At the ONE follow up call I received, I explained that my insurer had changed so I would need to go through preauthorization again. You would think a doctor would be more understanding.
