He told me that there was no way to get off of medication. He said do yoga or meditate. I showed my test results to my physician and he sent me to a surgeon to fix the problem.

My husband has a history of colon cancer in his family and was told to get a colonoscopy by Dr. Kota, which is a "routine" procedure given his background. Months later we received bills for the services. We have BCBS/100% coverage on routine procedures. I found out that the office billed our insurance as a diagnostic procedure not routine so we owed 10%. After contacting them for a MONTH they said they would NOT resubmit the bills. Dr. Kota was nice, but we were mislead and won't ever return.
