He seemed very knowledgeable. I went for pelvic pain. He recommended I change to the patch from the mini pill without asking if I suffered from migraines. He also gave me heavy duty antibiotics when there was no infection of any kind.

This is my first time visiting Dr. Pei; he was very nice, friendly, and patient. Even after he has been such an experienced obgyn, and seeing so many patients, he still remembers to step in the shoes of a first timemom-to-be and try to calm me and answer all my questions.

Dr. Pei seems like a nice doctor. A smiley guy with an upbeat and positive attitude. I like him, but that's about it. The rest of the office and staff just needs to get their business together. Before my appointment Imade sure my insurance was accepted. Be warned that this office will pre-charge you anyway, even if they are in network, just in case your insurance doesn't pay. So be prepared with your checkbook, I ended up paying more than i intended out of pocket. In addition, I still haven't gotten my money back even though my insurance paid the total amount and then some. I went in for a consult and shortly afterwards a decision was made on how to proceed. Pretty clear cut and easy. That was in back in May. We are now in August and I have not been called back for the next appointment. The office seems to havr no idead what to do, and are having a difficult time with my insurance despite the fact they are in network with Tricare Standard. My husband and I had to call Tricare on their behalf several times since they can't seem to figure out what to do, and they wouldn't bother to call Tricare even though we have told them several times that if they have problems - to call and select the 'provider' option... THEY WILL HELP THEM!!! A nurse even blamed me for not leaving her the fax number for Tricare, hence the delay. What medical billing office doesn't know how to find fax numbers for insurance issues and concetns?!). Well it turns out Dr. Pei's office were submitting the insurance code incorrectly for my procedure, thus resulting in the delay (thanks to Tricare for spotting the error!). So as of right now I lost my money (that they were supposed to give back), they also took my insurance money and I'm still waiting for an appoontment.
