Patient Comments (1)
Pahrump |
Made an appt on june of 2015. My son was suppose to get circumcise last year. But we we're in a waiting list forever. Every time I called the office and find out when is his appt, they keep on telling that I will get a call in a month. It is very frustrating because when I expect a call from them hoping to get it done, I don't get a call and Its a hassle of calling them because they keep on putting me on hold and always get the response of you will get a call by the nurse in a month or so.
