Patient Comments (1)
in Long Valley, NJ |
Very unimpressed and would not recommend. as a new client, I waiting patiently for a period of 2 weeks to see the doctor. On the day of my appointment, they call to cancel and rescheduled in 3 weeks time!! That would have resulted in a period of 5 weeks for a single appointment - clearly they do not value their customers - new clients especially!!!!!
