Patient Comments (2)
Norcross, GA |
Dr Kooistra seems very good, but the office staff is the worst I've ever experienced. They are rude, they don't answer the phone, they don't respond to voice mails, they schedule patients so that every patient waits a minimum of 90 minutes before seeing the doc. The Office staff refuses to help with the simplest of requests. Listen to them say, "Don't expect any response in 24 hours". That is horrible customer service. Horrible.

Dr. Kooistra is extremely intelligent. She will spend whatever time necessary to find the best treatment plan tailored specifically for you. She truly is the best...and not just around here. Spartanburg is so lucky to have her.
