I called to reschedule my appointment with Dr. Adelson. Don't get me wrong, he is one of the best doctors in Washington, DC. However, the problem lies on the staff. First call I did today 8/31, the reception put me on hold for 7 mins.; I called back then again on hold for 15 mins., someone picked up the phone and hang up. Again I called, then got a voice mail saying the Office is CLOSED and to call back the next business day. I just don't believe it!!!
