The billing team is awful! I contested a bill of $40 with a letter to Dr. Higa several years ago. Don't remember ever getting a response from him, then several years later get a letter from a collection agency! In my letter, I explained my horrific experience with the Laser treatment I had and the allergic reaction I had and missed three days of work due to hives all over my body! What awful care Dr. Higa and his team provides for his patients! I wouldn't go there ever again!
