Patient Comments (2)
in Decatur, GA |
Doctor Scales and Kevin have performed three surgeries (two shoulders and a knee, all full replacements, and another shoulder replacement is in the works They have all been outstanding and changed my life (pain relief) At West Point he is a 4.0 !!!! His whole staff is wonderful !!!!! Especially Wendy who has a most difficult position juggling Doctors patients and hospitals!!!!! !!!!
Scheduling nurse (Wendy) has a horrible attitude. After waiting 5 days with no call or follow-up, I had to call them to get a surgery date. Her response was I am very busy, I have three doctors I work with Attitude went down hill from there. Bad way to start the patient/doctor relationship.
