Ratings for Dr. Alberto Yonfa
My issue with Dr. Yonfa was that he said he had felt a lump in my breast and informed me to get a mammogram,so I got one. What he didn't tell me was that he was going to code it as a screening (optional). Because my insurance only pays for medically necessary procedures, the insurance denied the claim and I ended up paying hundreds of dollars out of my pocket. If he would have told me it was a not necessary I wouldn't have gotten it. However, he gave me the strong impression it was medically necessary. His office told me "of course it was medically necessary and the proof is that you had to do it again (which was covered by my insurance), but we aren't going to change the coding to reflect the necessity of it, the insurance should just know." They don't. He is nice, but he doesn't read the chart from the year before. He forgot why he gave me a prescription and tried to change it to something that could kill me. I had to remind of why I couldn't take the new perscription.
