Bad billing practices. Seems like the billing Dept. is dishonest. I was told I needed to "pay in full" at the time of my appointment. I was in to have a couple questionable spots checked. I paid in full $142. I received a bill a few weeks later for $142 plus $17 for freezing a skin tag. The invoice did not acknowledge the initial payment. I asked for an accurate invoice [we've been told by BCBS to save all bills for reimbursement - they have been having issues since the beginning of the year] only to be sent an identical invoice to the first one. So I paid the $17. THEN, I was sent another bill for $142. Apparently the initial $142 that I paid in full was for just walking in their office. I think they are ripping people off. They say I now owe another $142 for services that day. I asked Dr. Boyd at the time, if it wasn't necessary to remove something then don't because I wasn't sure how much it would cost. He assured me that he'd freeze it off at no charge. $159 dollars later - I guess that wasn't honest either....or he doesn't know what the billing Dept. is up to.

Poor bedside manners. Appeared to be in a hurry. Treatment of my condition actually made it worse. I will not be going back to Dr. Boyd.

Dr Boyd saw my elderly aunt for a lesion on her lip. He was very patient and gentle with her. Treated her like an individual, not just a number. Would highly recommend him for your dermatogoly needs.
