CONSUMER ALERT! This doctor's billing office practices BALANCE BILLING. How Balance Billing Works: They bill your insurance, insurance pays a discounted rate, then this doctor's medical billing person, Sharron, bills you for the discount the insurance company receives contractually from the Doctor. This is illegal in 10++ states, but Alabama is behind on most things, including this. BUYER BEWARE!

Dr. Routman worked with my son who had a very difficult situation and performed surgery. He was very kind, patient and made sure all our questions were answered. He took the time to arrange the other Doctors who would have to assist in my sons surgery and treats my son with such patience, focus and diligence. We love this practice!!

Dr. Routman was congenial; and he listened, examined, and diagnosed my problem with the assurance that if this did not help, there were other options to try. He explained in detail what I needed to know about the medication he was prescribing. He and his staff are friendly and make you feel like they care about your health.
