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.
