My doctor requested I get a PH test to determine if I had acid reflux. I was never given an appointment before or after the procedure. A person from the office called to give me the results not a doctor. I was not allowed to speak to the doctor when I had trouble swallowing for 2 days after the procedure. I was told the insurance approved the procedure, but was not informed my out of pocket expenses would be over $1,800 due in 30 days. Obviously this clinic is not about the patient's health

Absolutely will never use this doctor. Had a colonoscopy scheduled for Monday. Sunday evening as I was well into the prep for this I get a call asking me to call the office in the morning for a reschedule. Not only that, but the female calling me butchered my name. I have a simple name (think Smith). I've had this scheduled for weeks. I had to take time off of work which at this late hour I cannot undo. Doesn't he have a backup for these situations? I am beyond angered. Never again.
