Patient Comments (1)
Bloomington, IL |
He and his staff 'forgot' to order an important test for me. After waiting 3 weeks for results, we hung in the waiting room for an hour, then in the exam room for an additional hour, to be told 'someone dropped the ball.' But even after all that, no one ordered the test! What a horrible time we had while waiting an additional three weeks to find out about what chemo might work for me!!! Delayed all treatment unnecessarily. I'd never let these people mix a drug cocktail for me. Never!
