Woodstock, NY |
Dr Spaar was okay, but his office is a disaster. I had a colonoscopy and they sent my tests to a lab that is outside my insurance. I now have a bill for 942.00. I have called ten times and no one answers or returns my calls. Don't you think they would have checked my carrier before the procedure? The whole office is a mess! They are running around like chickens.

Up to an hour wait in the waiting room and then another 15-20 min sitting in the exam room which happens to be next to a free clinic so you here the babies screaming on the other side of the wall ( Egg Harbor Office in the Atlantacare offices). Had to call the office for results since his nurse is not that pro active with patient follow up. When Sparr finally see's you he has no idea why you are there even though it may be a follow up. He is very indifferent and uninterested in general.
