I recently went to dr Hertzog,s office for my annual eye check. I was told I had to pay for the test for glasses even though I had insurance and had not paid for this test the last two times I was there. When I went home I contacted my insurance and found they had not put me in the system.This was quickly fixed and I informed the eye dr office about this.That was about two week ago and I still did not get my money back so today went to the office.They now know I do not owe this money, but refused to give me my money back today.They say I have to wait until they again bill insurance and then will give my money back.I asked for interest on my money they were indefinitely keeping and again told no, with a chuckle from the bookkeeper.I asked for Dr Hertzog to call me, but guess he does not care his office is stelling my money.Stay away from this office. It is bad.
