San Diego, CA |
Stephanie at Dr. Torchinsky office is horrible & should not be an "upfront person". I got a voicemail notification to come to see Dr. Torchinsky & when we came to the office we were told that it was a computer glitch and you have no appointment. "It happens all the time. It is not our fault" - it was the answer by Stephanie. No "we are very sorry" or "we will make sure it would never happen again". I'm an 80-year old woman and it is not easy for me to get ready to go to a doctor. :-(
