I have been trying to help this team get paid for services they provided me back in 2015. No matter how many times I tell them to send paperwork to Tricare (my insurance) they fail to do so. Now they want to send me into collections for their payment. They can not, I'm fully covered by Tricare. I even tried to do a three way call with Tircare and this team, they hung up on them. WHAT? The doctor is a good man but his staff either hates him or they are complete idiots.

Unresponsive staff. You either get voicemail (and then no one calls you back) or you get staff that just wants to pawn you off on the other staff that is sick that day (by taking a message). Do not recommend.
