Patient Comments (1)
in San Diego, CA |
I had an appointment to see the doctor and was kept waiting almost 2 hours after my scheduled time. Once the doctor finally showed up, there was no apology, no explanation, nothing. As if I was lucky to see him at all. If that wasn't bad enough the front end staff is worse. I've called multiple times trying to get the results of a test I had done, and no one ever answers. I've left messages and never get a call back.
