Would not recommend. Dr G was fine but dealing with his staff, billing coordinator, aka, his wife has been a nightmare. I was told my insurance covered my visits to come in. Was about 6 visits in when I got a bill for over $1000. When calling her she told me because my secondary insurance wouldn't cover it, she needed my FAQ's from my primary. Got them to her. Eight months later she turns me over to collections. Isn't it her job to do billing properly? My insurance covers they assure me....OK?
