Office Visit / Follow-up

During a previous visit I was prescribed a medication that required your office to contact my insurance to be filled. My pharmacy explained that it was never followed up on and not authorized. When I called it was submitted again after two months and I began. I then had to come in for a follow up visit after 30 days and again paid $195. Since that time I have talked with the pharmacy processing the new prescription who are waiting for your office to complete the information needed by my insurance company. I am not sure what the delay is.

Dr. Matthews is very thoughtful with his care. I appreciate that he is always willing to answer multiple questions and has made many of my appts for me and my husband comfortable.
