in Whiting, NJ |
Dr. Bigornia has treated me for several years now. I have found his doctor-patient skills to be outstanding.Takes his time with me, explains everything clearly and answers all questions in a manner which is both caring and professional. His staff and office personnel go above and beyond in everything asked of them without complaint.You leave every visit with a detailed print-out covering every aspect of your examination.Questions can be emailed to the doctor or his staff with prompt replies.

Dr Bigornia and his staff are thorough in their care of me and always friendly and attentive. I have lung cancer so Dr Bigornia takes extra time to make sure my GERD and any other problems I am experiencing are well controlled. My husband is seeing him for the first time today and I would trust him to care for all my family members. They take care of all pre auths and insurance issues. One of my favorite docs and I have A LOT with my cancer.
in New Jersey |
I had to wait 2 hours to see Dr. Bigornia. His front desk staff treated me like crap. I was also not notified that the procedure that he wanted me to have done (and made me feel like I had no other choice) would not be covered by my insurance company. Most practices that I have been to warn me ahead of time what's covered and what isn't. My diagnosis was heart burn and I'm paying $600 for it. All he had to do was prescribe zantac, but all he obviously cares about are insurance checks.
We are sorry you had a bad experience. Based on the information here we tried to pinpoint when you were in, but we couldn't find any record of your visit. Regarding your comment about your procedure not being covered, there is no way to know what the insurance will pay. You have to know your own insurance. Also, the best way for a doctor to correctly diagnose someone is to examine them, so Dr. Bigornia felt you needed to have the procedure to treat you appropriately.
