Billing and staff are issues

No words for the front desk person who is more than abrupt and should take lessons in cusomer service because she lacks it. Billing is not on same page as your insurance. You are billed for a regular visit with a copay even if it's a 10 minute annual that your insurance offers complimentary with no copay. Try getting you copay back. You have to fight with the front desk ogre. If they send you for tests you should be given codes or they can call then in for coverage. Instead they'll send you for an extraordinary test and you are on your own to see if insurance will pay. Any other doctor's office will call for you. Instead you have no idea that test is unique and it winds up costing you a lot of money because the gatekeeper says you're responsible to find out. The doctor cares but the staff and their billing practices make it less desirable to keep going.

The professionalism of the staff here is highly questionable!!! Very rude secretary named Sue. Very condos ending towards myself when trying to get an appointment for the last 4 months!!! Told me I could go to planned parenthood if I was "having issues because they take anybody" Really? I had been a patient there for over 15 yrs, except the past 3 yrs due to lack of insurance and her rising "cash payments" increasing to almost $300!!! What a way to treat a woman who you were told was having issues and needed to be seen only to be criticized and insulted by your secretary and told they don't need you as a patient anymore. Rude, unprofessional and quite arrogant!!! Will be notifying the 11-13 friends, coworkers, (2 who were present to here the conversation with Sue) and family members about this and maybe you will treat your patients better when you start loosing them. Horrible way to treat a woman!!! Would give a negative rating if it was offered!!!!

Never again, I find the staff and DR. to be rude but then end the visits with just enough sugar to make it all seem ok. Well its not. A woman should feel good about going to her Gynecologist start to finish. Im also tired of them billing unnecessary codes for treatment that did not occur. How could a gynecologist bill extra for talking about your period? Isn't that what they are suppose to talk about?? Argh, shame on them.

Dr. Desanti

I love, love, love this woman! Best gynecologist and Dr. I have ever been to and I've been to quite a few over the years. She makes you feel so comfortable that asking "personal" questions is no problem! No matter where I move, I will be coming back to Dr. Desanti!! I am setting up my 16 year old daughter to be her patient as well. I have never had a doctor personally call me about test results or just to check in to see how I was doing after a visit like Dr. Desanti does. It's amazing!
