Very disappointing experience... go somewhere else.
I have never written a negative review of any business, but I feel compelled to do so for the first time due to what, I believe, were dishonest and misleading billing practices and medical procedures. My story? I was unable to put weight on my big toe and went to the Spokane Foot Clinic for diagnosis. I paid my co-pay for the visit and the insurance paid the $200+ bill for the office visit, which included x-rays.
