Patient Comments (1)
in Huntington, NY |
Very poor follow-up by doctor. Left him (2) emails from My Chart plus 3 office messages to follow up on blood results. To date....no response. How can you run a practice like this. We're dealing with people that have health issues. My car mechanic has better follow-up.
