What People Say About Dr. Michael Yankowitz, DPM

Love the doctor. Office manager one of the rudest people I have talked to. She refused to check with my ins as I did, so she could see they covered 100%. for orthotics. She told me no they didn't. Then told me she couldn't file the claim with medicare so they could deny and my ins would full pay. I offered to pay the $500 and wait for reimbursement and she would not let me do that either. I will go to another doctor for the orthotics. Hope to find a way to let this doctor know why I left.

My husband went to this doctor for 3 visits in about a 1 1/2 month timespan. On my husbands second visit, he attempted to pay his $50 copay with the doctors MA. She refused it and even checked with the doctor to confirm that it wasn't needed because it was a "follow up". Of course, we were later billed. When I questioned it, they claimed the doctor would NEVER say not to pay a copay. Clearly his staff was poorly trained and rather than admit the error, they basically called my husband a liar.

Ordered and was fitted for a $500 set of orthotics that were 100% covered by insurance, with a $50 co-pay. When I went to pick them up (had to schedule apt), they charged me ANOTHER $50 (oh, it's not us, it's the insurance company since you needed another appt.) I said I would take them and leave, which of course they told me I couldn't do. Dr. had to *fit* them which consisted of him holding each one up to my heel for about 3 seconds and telling me to put them in my shoes to see how they felt

Don't go to him. He is impersonal and over bills insurance provider and expects patient to cover cost.
