Wonderful Doctor and Office Except for . . .

The staff in Dr. Melfi's office is wonderful. All people seem happy to be there and they all are well informed. However, I have had a billing problem that I've made 3 phone calls about. Billing NEVER answers the phone. They ask for a call back number. So far, I've been unable to connect with them. This needs to be changed.
