If you see Dr. Lederhaus you have to sign away all your rights in case of misdiagnosis or medical mistakes. He charges $100 for a cancelled appointment. He will not give any estimates upfront. He doesn't take checks. Money is their main concern (in my opinion), medical problems seem to be secondary. I got a 20 page form to fill out before they would even consider to see me.
