Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Primus "My philosophy of care is centered around patient information and patient understanding.

Dr Primus answers your questions with good detail. His billing services have proven to be inadequate. THe billing personnel are very tardy in submitting medical claims AND very unorganized. His billing service continually submit and resubmit claims for the same services.

I had right rotator cuff surgery with him. Later, used his services for slight hip flexor tear. I didn't have any issues with wait time. Actually, surgery went quite well. Very close to pre-surgery strength. Cheers!

I would not choose Dr. Primus if I had a choice. The reason is because anytime I schedule a appointment we're always waiting at least 2 HOURS PAST our scheduled time.
