Patient Comments (1)
Halethorpe, MD |
Wait over 2 hours though arrived early. People who arrived after me were processed ahead. Front desk not forthcoming w/billing questions. Instead of billing me, confronted me in an embarassing manner, & forced me to call health ins to explain. Due to meds I take for other conditions, my arthritis is masked, & I delayed seeking treatment, but, I want resolution, not just treating conditions, but Dr. has not explained options to resolve, despite queries. Treatment has helped, but not enough.
