Basically a hearing aid business that has jumped into the easy money sleep study racket. $450 to read my sleep study from the sleep lab next door. It takes how long to look at the polysomnogram, and recommend a few settings on the CPAP machine. Let's say 5 minutes to punch the info into a computer program and send it back to the lab. That's six per hour easy, comes out to $5400 per hour. Sure, they have the right to make almost any price for the service, but shouldn't I have been notified or giv

I had a surgery with this office and had seen Dr. Purdom. I don't recommend this doctor and the clinic. They never told us what has been done, and we barely saw Dr. Purdom during follow-up visits. We were sent an outrageous bill first until the office sent us a refund. Then another bill and we were told to wait until they figure out the account. Several months late, we got a letter from the collections about our debt. Terrible experience. My symptoms came back and they refused to see me.Avoid

Was professional & kind. Listened well and clearly explained options. Gave ongoing, clear explanations of the procedure as it was being performed and clear instructions for aftercare. He was easy to speak with and did not give the impression of being too rushed to listen. At the end he asked if there were any questions and reminded us to call if we thought of anything or had any questions come up. I couldn't have asked for a better experience.
