Patient Comments (1)
Washington, DC |
sThe experience was terrible, first, waited for more than an hour and a half to meet Dr, Ahad, then meet for no more than thirty minutes, include the time that he went out twice and each last about 10 minutes. Second, they took my blood test in their office, even I asked if its in-network and they said it was, they sent it to an out-of-network lab. Third, now its more than a month and they didn't send any bill or claim to my insurance company or my address.
