Not experienced doctor. Had 2 times appointment because I'm pregnant and have problem with eye inside. She said everything good and I can have normal birth for the baby, any risk for me. I find different doctor in Portland and she never see before what she find inside my eye and said only c-section, that's a big risk for my life give normal birth. P.S. not recommend this doctor

Poor billing etiquette

Make sure your insurance pays the bill immediately otherwise you'll get a nasty certified letter followed by a call from the collection agency. I have the best insurance in the country and unfortunately it took them a little extra time to get the bill paid but I guess Mrs. Avakian needed that $700.
