Dr. Raviv's office uses a tool to examine your sinuses that your insurance company my classify as an outpatient surgery. His office insists that they tell you about this fact beforehand but I don't think that it is clear enough.

Also, while examining my sinuses Dr. Raviv said "Let me get something real quick" and left the room. He came back with a tool and said "I just need to make a LITTLE snip" and proceeded to stick it up my nose and snip a piece of scar tissue from my sinuses. Soon after I got a sinus infection probably because I was coming down with something the day of this procedure and the "LITTLE snip" did not help matters. The place where he made the "LITTLE snip" hurt for a week after. Not fun.

Then I got the bill for the "outpatient surgery". I called their office to ask about it and they told me to call North Shore billing. North Shore billing incorrectly explained that the "LITTLE snip" was outpatient surgery.

I think that both the office and Dr. Raviv need to improve their communication skills.
