Do not go see this doctor

He was awesome during my first visit I was very please. Once he scheduled my endoscopy everything went down. His office and surgery center called me the date before to confirm my appointment. His office confirmed and stated that I didn't have any thing to pay. The surgery center called me to asked the preliminary questions and no mentioned of any copay or patient responsibility. I get there and the receptionist informed that I have a copay of 1900 dollars that I needed to pay prior to the procedure. I asked why wasn't I inform of this the day before I would not had taken off from work since I don't have 1900 dollars to pay. She proceeded to tell me they tried calling me but the number was incorrect. How is that even possible? A nurse from center had called me to asked medical questions and confirmed my appointment??? I wouldn't agree to do the procedure until I called my insurance company and confirmed this is true as I never heard of me having a deductible. The staff was getting upset because I was making them late. However I was not going to go ahead and pay. Then they got dr scierra on the phone who was persuading me to go ahead and then we will figure out the money issue. I kept telling him no and he kept insisting. It was just a terrible experience. Then dealing with his billing company and being told I not only had to pay for the deductible from the surgery center (which dr scierra had financial interest in) but also had to pay some out of pocket money for professional charges which I was never informed by his staff.

One Star

After waiting for more than an hour, some other guy came to me with absolutely no knowledge why I was there. And only after I decided to leave, doctor Sciarra showed up with naïve question: what is the problem...

Outstanding care

The day of the procedure, the power went off in the gastroenterologist unit operation room. While the other doctor re-scheduled all his patients, Dr. Sciarra went out and beyond his call of duty to accommodate all his patient procedures to the hospital main surgery room. It is true that took longer than spected but the satisfaction of the feeling that a physician cares for you, made the waiting more manageable.

Two Stars

this is the worse staff I have ever experienced. Major errors, uncourteous and unprofessional. also never speaks English around you, so you have no idea what they are saying about you. The Doctor is smart and professional, not sure why he stands for this staff. I would fire the bunch and start over..
