Patient Comments (1)
Prescott, AZ |
I went to this doctor for some pre-operative testing. They test where done a month in advance. However the staff did not get the tests over to the surgeon till 2 days before the surgery. The Prescott office staff is never there, never answers the phone or returns messages. They are only there 2 days a week and very under staffed, and incompedent. I would not recommend them.
