$1800 fee per person per year just to see you. That's $3600 a year for a married couple. This fee is not covered by insurance nor is it tax deductible. Hence the 3star rating. If it weren't for the fee it would be a 5star!!!! Our UHC co-pays & deductibles have gone up into the thousands this year & an extra $3600 is no longer in our budget since we only see him 2-3 times per year. Good things always come to an end & we move on!

He is wonderful. Pays attention to me and what is going on with my health. His front desk receptionist is very poor. On many occasions you have to call and call because the phone is not answered. Appears to have negative attitude and is does not give the impression that she wants or is willing to be helpful. When you feel the need to see your doctor, you don't want to wait days, sometimes rude. Have heard several others complain on the same person. His nurse is very nice and attentive.
