Patient Comments (2)
New Orleans, LA |
Excellent care and treatment by Dr. Purohit and his staff.
in Covington, LA |
I had a vasectomy performed in July of 2013. Was not covered by my insurance so I had to pay out of pocket. No problem. I was given a price and paid in full. It's now July of 2015 and I am still being hounded for a balance that was already paid. Incompetence.
