Patient Comments (7)

They said everything was supposed to be covered by insurance. However, a few months after the visit I received a huge bill. They said that my insurance didn't cover the visit. After speaking with my insurance company Dr. Harris shouldn't have even seen me without prior authorization and approval....more
