in Howell, NJ |
Dr. Lygas billing personnel are heartless as noted by other patients. Called office asking for monies due. Required to pay over $1,000 for his services. He is not in our provider network. The office billed our insurance for payment coverage, They receive $800+ but will not return the monies owed us till sometime in June when Doctor returns from vacation. According to billing clerk only the doctor can sign refund checks. Ridiculous.

500 character will make it short His billing policy is heartless My mom owed about 300. Didnt pay first few months then started paying 50/m Dr filled a lawsuit with sm claim court! I called his office for mom bc I was in disbelief. Office worker said it was Dr policy. Due to me saying I would write a bad review The Dr had office call my mom left a threatening VM If she writes anything unfavorable of him he would take her court & she would have to pay for her & his lawyer-I saved VM for judge!!!!

ZERO STARS...... Heartless OLD dog who received from the lab my biopsy report on Friday and sat on them until Monday and for me to get the results I had to show up at his office unannounced at 4:30pm. This pissed him off and he told me to never return. I guess him giving me my CANCER diagnosis interfered with his day. BUT this was a divine intervention, he had dandruff so disgustingly bad that I felt if he was to open my chest he be sprinkling dandruff into my open chest cavity. AVOID
