Patient Comments (1)
Spokane, WA |
I'm very upset with Dr. Smith and her office staff. My daughter and her family have been a patient of yours for over 10 years and have paid you thousands of dollars only to be treated very unprofessionally! My granddaughter came into your office yesterday for her appointment and was told by your office manager that her and her family were no longer welcome! The reason? they had to move a few appointments that were out of their control ex. death, sickness and work problems!
