Patient Comments (1)
Stites, ID |
Dr. And staff need to listen more appropriately to patients concerns. Made a surgery decision and dual surgery that could have been handled in office. When called for follow up, staff didn't listen to patients concerns. Felt uneasy at lack of concern for patient and more concern for $ office visit.
