My son is a patient of Dr. Schimmel and i must say office is always clean and everyone is so nice especially Lucy she explained everything to me step by step. I am so pleased with the care my son is getting my youngest child will soon also be a patient .Thank you Lucy and Dr.Schimmel..
I went in for a consultation. I did the usual: filled out paper work and reminded the office manager Lucy to take my health insurance card. When ready, we sat in a room and waited for the Doctor to arrive. He was straight to the point, kinda cold but I wasn't turned off just yet. I asked him to give me a quote but he said Lucy will come in and further explain in details. Indeed Lucy and the office Dog came in and she vaguely gave me an estimate. NO PAPERWORK OR BREAKDOWN. Our conversation entailed more About the dog than the actual quote. She said the X-rays for the consult were 200$ and had to be paid for. I wasn't thinking straight, and forgot my insurance will pay for my x-rays. However Lucy failed to even inquire with my insurance company. It would save her the hassle of calling and just charge me cash. To make a long story short she never made an appt, she stated December would have openings but never booked me. I then proceeded to ask for a final quote after communicating with my insurance company. I also informed her i didn't have to pay for the x-rays. She gave me the run arounds until i finally after a few weeks I spoke to the Doctor and they reimbursed me and cut me a check for 160$ ! Not even the full amount... charging me bogus fees which i am sure my insurance would've covered. Lucy is incapable of running the financial aspect of the office. She thinks she knows it all and will twist your words around almost making you question yourself. I have other friends who have consulted there entirely for free, never charged for the consult but were turned off by Lucys manic behavior around the office and on the phone. Ive consulted other places on the upper west side... they've sat with me to give me a break down, handed me a folder with the financial breakdown and treatment plan. Not Lucy... she will give you a verbal estimate and probably add more fees over time. HORRIBLE! Will never return here again. The Dentists were probably decent in their practice but I will never know since the business front (Lucy) was all over the place..
Dr.schimmel is a great doctor. The office is run efficiently and they always take us at our appointment time. My kids love him and most importantly, the results are great.-.
