Shreveport, LA |
Office experience was terrible, they never see you on time. wait time for my last several visits has been at least two hours past appointment time. So bad that patients are heard asking other patients what there appointment time was and then shaking there heads...wouldn't recommend him or any other doctor in their medical arts building office by Piermont hospital
