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.

Gynecological Ultrasound / Sonogram

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. He is also very personable and easy to talk to about care and things outside of care. Dr. Matthews provides personal touches such as offering to meet in his office after exams which makes me feel much more comfortable than in an exam room.
