in Franklin, TN |
Dr. Gross did my cataract surgery and my subsequent eye exams. My previous ophthalmologist referred me to him because she thought my cataract surgery would be complicated by my previous cornea surgery. My vision is excellent now, almost perfect. Dr. Gross is excellent in the operating room and at the bedside- a wonderful physician.

My previous provider retired and my Internal Medicine doctor recommended Dr Groos. While Dr Groos was excellent, the practice, Cornea Consultants, has some deceptive billing practices. Insurance did not pay because Cornea was not using the correct code. (??) Cornea would not change the code so insurance would pay. So I paid when insurance was willing to pay. Cornea also confirmed insurance would pay prior to visit. Lost patient over $65. Too many choices to work with deceptive practice.

He restored my site to a level I didn't think could happen. He was excited and as happy about it as I was.
