Patient Comments (1)
aurora, co |
I had to wait in the exam room waiting room to see Dr. Palestine 30 minutes or longer. When he finally came in he had someone with him, he introduced her but I dont remember her name. I dont know if she was a actual Dr. or a intern but she might as well have been the Dr, I was seeing instead of him. He constantly asked or said what do you think or dont you think. He was actually in the room for approx. 10 minutes before he left and left her there to finish my questions and instructions.
