What People Say About Dr. Leopold Bolona, MD

I took my daughter in for a gene test that I was told Dr Bolona was able to give. His receptionist Melissa knew we were going in for the test, gave me a price but then asked if I wanted a long appointment. What she failed to tell me is that the appointment cost $670! Now we go to the appointment but they don’t have the test in stock, but of course the dr prescribes my daughter a new med and since she is almost 18 he makes a point of telling me that I have no rights in regard to what meds she wants to take. Ok so appointment is over, I am told the gene test will be ordered for the next appointment and Melissa tells me she will email me a receipt for the $670 appointment. Well I never got a receipt. Ok so we go to the next appointment, but they still don’t have the test. The appointment takes 15 minutes the charge is $200 and the meds he prescribed turned my daughter into a zombie. Melissa tells me I don’t need receipt if my ins won’t pay. I would stay far away from this dr! Deceptive!

Dr. Bolona has never listened to my concerns regarding medications. He has charged my insurance company even when i haven't been to his office. He is only in the office one night a week and even though I have been on the same medication for over 2 years he still requires me to see him monthly and I am literally in his office for two minutes. Hence why I have started working with someone else.
