Patient Comments (1)
in Brookfield, WI |
Always at least an HOUR late for her appointments! when she does appear, she does not apologize for being late and spends a maximum of 7 minutes with her patient. It is painfully obvious the nephrology clinic at Froedtert is under staffed and the doctors have too many cases. Dr. Adams would NEVER have allowed this to occur! Dr. Chris Johnson should really look into this awful patient care. That is why patients are leaving and heading to Aurora. Get a clue!
