Patient Comments (1)
in Gilbert, AZ |
I would recommend Dr. Vaughn, HOWEVER, please be aware that if you visit him at the 5131 E. Southern address (or any PCH facility), you will not only be charged for his visit, but also a visit to the facility. I have in front of me, two SEPARATE statements, with two DIFFERENT account numbers - for the same visit - both requiring copays. And be prepared for 45+ minute waits when you call the billing department. There are other surgeons out there (TOCA) that don't double charge for a visit.
