Patient Comments (1)
San Antonio, TX |
His office staff are rude and short. He will elect to shave off a mole. Instead of surgically remove it because he knows the high chances of it coming back so he can bill you/insurance twice. He will also send the sample for biopsy studies without your thoughts or input especially when it is benign so he can bill you and in the insurance. Make sure you ask for the biopsy studies to not be added on. He is quick on procedure only visits since he can't bill office visits when a procedure is planned
