  • We'll find out in a few weeks. I went for a check up a few weeks ago because preventative services are supposed to be covered by my insurance, but I still received a bill for the full amount. I called and asked why and was told that because during my appointment my doctor asked if I had any issues breathing and I said other than some wheezing with allergies and not being in the best of shape, no. Because "discussing my respiratory issues" is NOT covered by insurance, I was charged for the entire appointment. WTF. So I submitted a questionable claim and am waiting to see if she removes the code so my insurance will cover it. If not, I guess it'll show how much she cares!

  • Not anymore. I've been through so much with the doctor I went to here, overcharging me and not refunding my money, that I actually switched back to my old doctor who practices 3 hours from here. My kid's pediatrician has become a whole lot less pleasant and so has his staff. They overbook and after hours are completely unavailable. There is not even an answering service. I have to call the hospital and hope he'll actually return their page.
