Patient Comments (2)
in Scottsdale, AZ |
I have been a patient at this practice for about five years. I don't know why I continued to stay but now that Doctor Backer is on a leave I am leaving this practice. The follow through in getting test results is nonexistent and I had to call multiple times to get my blood test results, mammogram, chest x ray and bone density. HORRIBLE care! Messages are never returned and it is a practice that I would NEVER recommend but rather caution everyone AGAINST using this practice.

I have always found Dr. Backer to be thorough and explains things very well. I am very confident in her medical opionions concerning my health. My only complaint is her nurse Marcie who is not only unfriendly and abrupt, doesn't return telephone calls and doesn't follow through on requests for information to be sent to other doctors.
