in Lusby, MD |
I drove over two hours to get there got there and I understand that emergencies arises my appointment was at 9:30am and didn’t get since until 12:00. Got to the back and she came in the room. She didn’t greet her self me to. I felt her bedside manner was very poor. Didn’t wash her hands when she came into the room or before she touch me.
