in Brooklyn, NY |
Never saw the doctor. This guy I think he was the office manager was awful and very aggressive. He started to act as if I was going to pull a fast one with the insurance. I'm a new patience. Then I explained that my insurance works 80/20 then he sat down to explain with the pages highlighted as if I was stupid then I told him well if there's a copay I'll pay it. Continued, it was too much. Pre-reg with zocdoc they didn't want to print the forms! Horrible horrible experience! Run away!
