wrong doctor
in Colonia, nj |
1. the office staff goes around speaking Spanish when I can't even understand them. 2. I have type 2 diabetes and this doctor was insisting that I only need to check my glucose levels once a week. His exact words were what are you going to do with that information anyway. He told me his father is diabetic and he only checks once a week and that is all I need to check. He got very loud and insistent with me. 3. The office staff put the wrong medication I was taking in the computer for refill
