He orders tests for me without discussing them with me. I find out when checking out. One of these was a heart shock treatment. When I have a problem between appointments, It almost impossible to talk to someone about.it. You have to leave a message and they either don't return the call or call back between 4-5 pm.
I apologize for your experience. We strive to deliver quality health care. To ensure that we will do our best to resolve your issue, please contact us directly at 225-769-0933, extension 3280.
