Patient Comments (1)
Ft Lauderdale, FL |
I'm leaving his practice. Trying to get a referral is virtually impossible. I have to call Oddness his referral coordinator at least ten times to get one. The last straw was when I surgery two different times and had to contact her supervisor the day before the follow up appointment because after a two weeks of request the referral had still not been fulfilled and no call as to why. If you are required to see specialist, RUN, don't walk away from this practice.
