On first visit I was booked for an endoscopy which I was asked to pay for even though they participate with my insurance. When I returned for the results I had to ask for the results...Dr. chessler did not remember hedid an endoscopy! He should have reviewed his notes! He is too old! He wanted me to book a second endoscopy in six weeks! For what? Do not waste your time! By the way, my insurance paid him and I had to call for a refund. I have to wait three to four weeks.
