We recently moved from Texas, feb 22, an transferred all record an approperate paperwork to Whitney. For the last 4 weeks Whitney has been telling us we are on top of list to be reviewed. Today 6 weeks later I called her only to be told we had been denied for insurance reasons. I believe Dr. Sills is a good man, I have no respect for his staff, they do not respond in a timley maner. Shame on them.
