I had a terrible experience with Dr Saffran's office coordinating my sleep study. Although he was an "in network" doctor on my insurance, he sent me to an "out of network" facility for my study. As a result, I was billed an extremely large amount for my study. An issue I am still trying to resolve 7 months later. I'm still at a loss for how this could have happened with an office that coordinates sleep studies all the time and should have clearly known better.
