Boise, ID |
Dr. Hirose maybe a great surgeon, but as a doctor you are only as good as your staff. Was referred from the ER with a shattered tibia, the staff has been HORRIBLE. There is NO communication between staff and Dr. from the front desk not checking me in then "told" me I never checked in. To being charged for post op appts. Had an allergic reaction to pain meds then treaded like a druggie for calling the day after and then staff refused to see me. Then nurse said I would just have to deal "sorry"
in Boise, ID |
He is one of the kindest and most compassionate Drs. I've ever experienced. He is very wise and conveys everything so that is easily understood.
