They just want your money.

Went in to have a routine physical, left with a bill that included $300 in services that insurance doesn't cover. Awfully convenient considering that the only thing they did was clean my ears... yet I had an operating room and clinic room service both billed. Customer service does not care and isn't willing to help. I do NOT recommend.

Dr. Tabas was less that perceptive to my problems. He was actually down right rude after my long wait to see him. To top it off, he didn't even have a proper diagnosis for me. I had to go see another physician to get proper care. I would not suggest Dr. Tabas for anyone.
