Patient Comments (1)
Tyler, TX |
This office is HORRIBLE. They will not help you schedule an appointment. If you are going to have the ER refer you for patients... try working with them. Waited 6 DAYS after an arm break for you to finally get around to talking to me to say you "didn't have room for us". Would NEVER recommend this office to anyone.
