with dr. saini and his staff an excellent experience . but the advocate group is constantly causing me stress with their billing dept . and the two systems they use, constantly not receiving bills then being called by collection for past due bills i was not informed of . the minute you pay one off they seem to find a new one from last year or two years ago. the strangest billing system i have ever seen
