Extremely rude and committing fraud. Even the insurance company representing had same opinion like us. Despite notifying that we are coming for flu shot they charged this visit as wellness visit to insurance. insurance company representative who talk to them told them to charge as preventative care as it is just flu shot. They kept charging for doctor copay and wellness visit. Even threaten to send for collection agency. We are of mind to NJ medical board of this fraud that being committed here. Doctor wasn’t even there with my kids more 2 minutes. She did not talk to them, just said hello and administered the flu shot and then left. We talk to our insurance company. They assured us multiple time that if it’s preventative care they will pay for the flu shot and administration of flu shot. Doctors office refused to bill it correctly. On phone mangers words “ We will get money one way or other”.
