83 reviews 1.0 star rating 1/15/16 I went there is a patient referred to by a sleep clinic and went through all the office visits and met with them discussed the cost and then had them and my insurance together on a conference call confirming there would be no cost and fully covered. Only after completing everything and paid in full they came to deliver the sleep machine only to find out they will want to charge me $1500 Since I didn't go ahead with treatment they posted a balance and report

The doctor's office after several discussions said there would be no cost and it would be covered by my insurance. In fact I called my insurance on a conversation with the doctor's office and my insurance and they assured me. I completed the initial treatment paid in full and when they came to deliver the machine I was asked to pay $1500 and I refused. That in a retaliatory effort I was then charged $10 And then placed on a credit reporting agencyI will be writing a letter to the medical board
