Ratings for Dr. Theodore B. Lygas
So unhappy with this insensitive mans attitude I would NEVER recommend him to anyone. Received my report on a Friday and when I wanted to see the report on Monday he got nasty and told me not to return. I guess my CANCER interfered with his life. Horrible excuse for a doctor.
I never met the man, but I needed a BIOPSY ASAP and made the appointment. MY Insurance told I had to pay CO Pay of $195 for my procedure... but Lygas wanted $1,000 deductible that was not met paid to him up front. My insurance company does not work that way but said it was the doctors policy. When I told them I did not have 1,000 to pay upfront and if they could help me out. they cancelled my appointment and the biopsy was suppose to be that same day. That to me made it sound this man is not interested in saving lives. Just money even though my insurance company would of paid their part later and the difference of what I had to pay.
I did get an appointment with another SURGENON who was recommended by a NURSE. This surgeon was in my network Insurance plan. and they did not take 1,000 deductible up front. :)

GET A SECOND OPINION BEFORE YOU LET HIM CUT YOU . Don't fell that just because he is your Dr he is doing the right thing by you. He scheduled surgery for me wout taking a biopsy or other tests such as MRI of breast. Went to 2 other dr for opinions & after another mamo & ultrasound, & mri both said I DID NOT NEED SURGERY at all. There was nothing there to be taken out!!! He was my surgeon at one time, but I do not trust him at all. GET A SECOND OPINION BEFORE YOU LET HIM DO SURGERY ON YOU. SURGERY SHOULD BE THE LAST RESORT, NOT THE FIRST
