Treatment from medical staff was good. Dr. Dickstein was very nice - the 30 secs I spoke with him. My problem with this place is their billing department. I'm 54 yrs old, first colonoscopy ever. I'm tired of my primary care physician pushing for it so I finally went and got one. These guys REFUSED to bill my procedure as a screening test vs diagnostic because my take home poop (FIT) test my primary gave me came back with a false positive. Colonoscopy ate up my whole deductible for the year - even though my insurance said they would cover it 100%. Weeks of back and forth/appeals, etc. These guys refused to budge, blaming everybody else. Clearly it is much easier to shake me down for payment (though collections) vs. my insurance company. I will NEVER use these guys again. They were nasty and made everything seem like it was my fault.

Have been with Dr D since my Dx. He has been pro active with trying to prevent further liver deterioration and treatment of my symptoms. He answers my questions and listens to my concerns. His office is busy and plan on waiting but it's been well worth it!
