      Billing Sucks !! Could not put all on the last experience with this office ! So to Continue. I paid the bill (total amount) at the so called Billing Paid online. Got a transaction approved code. Heck that don't matter because after a week the bill is still not processed on their side (even though It came out of my account) I am done using this so called office !!!!!! What a joke !!! Find someone else to use ! Oh and you ask for a manger they never give you one well Paula is the so called MGR.

      Corrupt billing! Double billed numerous times. I spent over an hour attempting to get through and no one answered phone and the email associated with billing statement bounced back.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
