Their Billing services are horrible. They do not bill promptly, they wait sometimes 1 yr later before even billing the insurance!!Then when you call for payment arrangements they are not willing to work with you. They tell you what they are willing to work out as a payment plan and if it is still something you can not afford that is your bad luck. They do not care.
