Patient Comments (1)
in Vista, CA |
She Is rushed and doesn't take time to listen to you or let you talk an ask questions.She is in and out of the room several times and your saying but wait a minute. Very frustrating . After a year I gave up and changed Dr.s. The staff never calls you back after you leave many message. You never get to talk to anyone when call it goes to message machine. One I had to call the office next door for them to ask them to call me. Another time I had to drive to their office to make an appointment !!!!!
