Referral very unlikely. I was given coupon for Prepopkik at my pre-appointment and since I have insurance was required to pay $95 instead of the $40 as stated on coupon in preparation of colonoscopy. I called Klien's office staff 3 times with no assistance. They refused to submit any information...more
