Patient Comments (1)
in Tinley Park, IL |
I would not recommend this physician. His bedside manner leaves much to be desired. He and his staff made making an appointment a hassle. They also gave me the run around and was unable to draw a simple blood test. Only saw him once and they processed my insurance information incorrectly and sent me a bill. When I called them to discuss the error they were adamant that the bill was my responsibility and there was no error on their part. Spoke to my insurance and they use the wrong policy number
