Patient Comments (2)
Puyallup, WA |
Just tried calling for a new patient appointment. The receptionist was short with me to say the very least. Very snotty. I worked for a Derm in Bellevue and cannot believe how unprofessional she was. Her tone was very condescending! Taking my business elsewhere! Why would I want to be a patient if I am already being treated like this on the phone. I have never written a review but went straight to website for this.
