Patient Comments (2)
Washington, CT |
On my third visit ($150 per visit) for an eye infection he said that I had an eyelash that looked like it might be irritating my eye and he thought it should be removed. I said I hadn't noticed any irritation, but told him to go ahead. He did not say that it would be an extra cost but I would have paid a reasonable fee without question. I received a bill for my office visit ($150) and an ADDITIONAL charge of $125 to remove the eyelash. Not reasonable. I will see another doctor in the future.

Dr. Rahmati is a skilled & compassionate physician, along with a wonderful man. Been a patient for decades. His staff on the other hand has always been difficult to deal with on various issues over the years. A recent & significant billing issue, which is still unresolved after a 6 weeks & 3 differing bills, is the result of a staff that is unwilling to listen, who become rude and defensive when errors (both cash & check payments not credited) making it difficult to resolve. Watch your bill.
