Patient Comments (1)
Bakersfield, CA |
I went to Dr. Ling's office just a typical office visit at April 2016 The billing after, however, was a nightmare that we're still dealing with five months later. I was sent a bill in May which my husband sent a check for. We were sent a second bill in June, which we called to ask about and were told by Tracy that the first check was not received. During that phone call, we paid another check and then stopped payment on the first check. We actually paid more than the original bill to stop paym
