This office is the only one in the area that handles vision therapy so you're pretty much stuck. As a result his bill rates are always over the insurance "usual and customary" and he doesn't accept insurance so expect to pay out of pocket and reduced reimbursement rates from your insurance. It becomes a real pain to deal with. It's frustrating that he gets to charge whatever he wants but doesn't work w/in the system to limit the hassle to his customers.

Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
