Ratings for Dr. Damian W. Sorvino
My daughter had vocal cord cysts. We were told that my insurance will not cover the Denville facility so we waited for 4-6 months ( the doctors operates once every two weeks) to do it in Morristown to get insurance coverage. After surgery, which Dr. Sorvino had a good mastery of and performed successfully, we were told to pay thousands out of pocket for two anaesthetists. If the doctor is under Aetna network, why are the supporting specialists not under network, I fail to understand. After repeated calls to the office the matter was not resolved and the staff did not let us directly talk to the doctor. We were told that the balance will be claimed from us by credit bureau. Inspite of having the most expensive plan and high deductible we ended up paying a lot out of pocket, so much for the promise made personally by the doctor that the Morristown facility will be covered.
I suspect Dr. Sorvino of fraud. My son has a deviated septum needing corrective surgery. Dr. Sorvino told him that he could only repair it to about 80% if we didn't agree to have a cosmetic portion done which included an implant at a cost of about $8000. He claimed our insurance company wouldn't approve the cosmetic portion. I called our insurance company who said even if there was some cosmetic benefit to some of the surgery they would approve it as medically necessary if the doctor applied for pre-certification. However, Dr. Sorvino would stand to make thousands more if he wasn't paid through insurance. I believe this is why he tried to predict that insurance wouldn't pay for the entire septum repair. So, we went to another doctor who told us no implant was needed and volunteered that she had to apply for pre-certification through our insurance. So, the information I had to investigate with our insurance and the second opinion confirms in my mind that Dr. Sorvino is primarily interested in lining his pockets over what's in the best interest of his patients. I would say don't walk away from Dr. Sorvino... RUN!!!
I would not recommend Dr.Sorvino this doctor has poor bed side manners,doesn't even care about any questions you may have. All he cares about is getting patients in quickly and out and worse of all if you get any tests done in his office, he doesn't even have the decency to call you and tell you your results. He has his staff call so you come in and may more money for no answers. Huge disappointment and useless.
