Longmont, CO |
First repair surgery completed by Reistad was not successful so had to have the surgery repeated. He does NOT explain procedures and does NOT allow more than a few seconds with patients at appointments. Staff all seem rushed. Seriously question whether office is more interested in $$ than helping people. Was not able to schedule surgery follow-up appointment within time frame since appointment times were "not available." We will find some place else to go even if we have to go to Denver.
