Benicia, CA |
Nobody likes colonoscopies but Dr. Mullen is great. Good staff too.
Hayward, CA |
Left message with her front office and never received a call back. Ended up calling office on a Sunday to talk to the Doctor on call and they took care of me. Prescribed antibiotics. Called Mullen's office on Monday to follow up and front desk showed no interest. Terrible offsite service.
