Patient Comments (10)

Routine screenings are covered 100% by my insurance- charged 300.00 to make an appointment for the procedure. Dr made a mistake and billed for diagnostic and 4 phone calls later it's still not resolved- I'm not allowed to talk to him. They treat you like a number that we are.

This doctor is very rude. He doesn't want to spend more than 2 minutes with you and he acts annoyed when you ask him questions. I had to wait 2 months for my consultation and was just told that I will have to wait 6 months for my procedure. I will be looking for a new doctor! He's one of the worst...more
