Patient Comments (1)
in Kernersville, NC |
While considering surgical procedures & day of surgery staff was inviting/engaging. Follow-up appt for addt'l short procedure- horrible. RN was rude- mentioned another pt needing the room I was in, that she was not sure they had the items needed for follow up procedure (scheduled a month in advance) & quickly exited me to another room to prep another pt for a surgery. Where did all the niceness & customer service go on follow-up? Out the window if not having $$ surgery. Will not go back!
