"took months to set up surgery they NEVER return calls did not even reply to my requests for information before my pre-op. Finally I cancelled my pre-op three days before as I wasn't going in without some idea of costs and type of lens etc. that I needed info on before the surgery. Absolutely will not return callls.. If you need a live person select the option for billing, apparently as disrespectfully as they are they still want your money. Of course that person will only promise to have someone call, but that will not happen."
