I have been seeing Dr Satar for many years. He is a specialized expert in his profession.
in Princeton In |
A person that refers to himself as a "doctor" yet demands a $40 insurance co-pay UPFRONT on first visit - Personally I feel that a person that desperate for cash is a person that will perform unneeded services just for insurance collections. NOT RECOMENDED MY ADVISE STAY AWAY!
