Patient Comments (1)
in Palatine, IL |
I have been a patient at your office for years, along with my husband. I arrived at 3:40 today for an appt. & sat there, ignored until 4:45. I went to the receptionist and told her I was going home, that I've waited long enough. Upon arriving at home, I noticed that your office called me at 4:17 at home - probably to see where I was-duh-I was sitting there waiting to be seen. This is very unprofessional & I am very upset. I will call & reschedule but I hope this won't happen again. Sally Granick
