Patient Comments (1)
in New Orleans, LA |
Dr. Smith discharged me from the hospital but was not present at the time. I then spent the next 3 days trying to get in touch with him. Each time I called his office, his staff tried to push me to schedule an appoint 2 weeks later. On the 3rd day, I finally spoke to a nurse and learned that no questions would be answered (including test results) unless I scheduled an appointment. Meanwhile, I received 2 calls from the hospital to discuss my discharge and results, unsolicited. Very disappointed.
