Patient Comments (1)
Seattle, Wa |
Do not see this man. The epitome of incompetence. Prescribed a 100-200mg dose of a medicine that is intended to be taken at 10-20mg dose. Did not notify me, only the pharmacy when I attempted to refill it.
Thank you for providing your feedback, it's greatly appreciated. Patient reviews are the best way for us to hear about how we're doing and where we need to make improvements. We apologize for the prescription error and hope that we may be able to win your favor again, as patient satisfaction is crucial. Please let us know if you have any questions and how we can better serve you in the future.
