Patient Comments (3)
Newark, DE |
The staff at the office is pathetic. It took 7 phone calls over 12 days to get a prescription sent to my local pharmacy. I had a question after my first appointment that I tried 3 times to get an answer to and never received a returned call. When I showed up for a follow up appointment they claimed to have no record of an appointment for me even thought I had the appointment reminder card with me. If this is the staff he keeps, how can I trust the doctor's judgement?

He may be a great doctor. I will never know. His appointment-staff is a mess. The first time it took my doctors office over 20 minutes to schedule an appt with him. Had me going to Middletown at first. I live in N Wilmington. Then they said I needed 2 Appt on different days. I said ok. Then they called me and said I didn't need 2 appts and set me up with a new appts so the doctor would be there, then they called me today to confirm an appt. that they canceled. At this point I said forget it.
