What People Say About Dr. Virgilio Tongson, MD
Reply
Poor billing practices. Incorrectly coded procedure so insurance would not pay. Was preventative procedure that he coded incorrectly and refused to correct. Office staff very difficult to work with. Ended up costing almost $5,000 out of pocket for preventative procedure that should be covered by insurance.
