If I could give a negative I would. Worst customer service ever. This doctor seems nice, but the office staff is so far from professional. The billing coordinator has yelled at me and my family, made us come down there to speak about the billing for a large procedure, then told me she didn't have time to see me. Page front office lady was trying to rip us off, and charge us around $1000 more then what we should have paid. I have contacted the BBB, the attorney generals office as well as my insurance companies, and investigations are in the process. I would not even waste my time, or insurance benefits going to this clinic, and if you do, or have been before, check your bill, and check with your insurance to verify all charges and patient portions.
