    They will TAKE your money!! I went to this doctor for an annual skin cancer screening and casually mentioned a spot on my nose to check for melanoma. The doctor said "it's not skin cancer, but let me remove it for you real quickly", rolled away, and rolled back with a small tool and zapped it off. It all happened so quickly, with no explanation and no time to ask questions. Needless to say, I did NOT know this would be considered a "procedure", billed to insurance, and hit me with a hefty bill a couple weeks later. I did NOT authorize this to happen, and would NOT have had this removed, if I had known ahead of time.

    When I called about this, they informed me that "the doctor does not typically discuss with a patient what will run through insurance or be considered a cost. You should assume anything that happens with the doctor will cost money."

    I'd love to know how a business can operate this way, not informing its patients or having them authorize 'next steps' with a doctor before taking action? You would think consent would be required? Not to mention, where do you draw the line? The doctor also spoke to me while I was there - was that considered a "consultation" that costs money too? Seems like a money-hungry, non-ethical place to me.

    I called insurance, and they let me know the doctor has the power to retract the claim - but he refuses to do so, once again telling me I should have assumed it would cost money and that's my fault.

    I would NOT recommend this doctor to anyone and will not be going back!!!
