This is the WORST I've ever been to. Visited the office for left ear wax removal, doctor Eugen Riviera treat you like a dollar sign but got the job done in 5 mins. Paid $85 for the service at check out and was told that's it. One month later got another bill of $130 after my insurance covered $65, so let me do the math, you are asking for a total of $215. How greedy, how shady, is there any regulation on bills?!...never going back.
