If his reception staff is any indication, I would strongly recommend NOT seeing this doctor. Terrible.

I take pride in choosing & training my staff. So, ultimately, majority of the situations are my responsibility. Having said that, if something is not adequate or appropriate, we (my staff and I) would greatly appreciate an appropriate and timely opportunity to discuss the matter. All that needs to be done is for a message to be left for us, and I and/or one of the senior members of the team will reach out to address the issue.
