 Dr. Sharma Reviews

My wife and me were interested in finding out about lasik, so we called this doctor and set up an appointment which we were told would cost 200. Upon seeing the doctor, he said were were both too old to get lasik in his view. The office asked us our ages before going for the appointment by the way. So the doctor said he can't in good faith charge us the consultation fee and asked if we wanted an eye exam. I thought fine, we were about due since COVID had delayed normal eye care. I told him that my employer has EyeMed for eyecare insurance and that my Blue Cross would not cover anything eye care related unless it was an emergency. He insisted in using Blue Cross and said "we will bill something and see what they cover". I again raised that we have Eye Med vision insurance and Sharma Ophthalmology was on the approved Eye Med list, so I hesitantly said ok. That was a mistake. We were later billed over $430 for eye tests that Blue Cross would not cover and they would not bill anything through Eye Med. This guy is a scammer and a crook in my book. He also tried pushing Cosmetic surgery on my wife for baggy eyelids. What a joke. Beware of this crook, don't fall for it. And his office staff are snobby and rude. we've called his office and their billing office, but have gotten no where.
