Patient Comments (1)
in Briarcliff Manor, NY |
Had a terrible experience with Dr Rush and her staff. They pushed me to schedule an in-office probing to open my daughter's tear duct, cancelled the original Monday appt and rescheduled me to Saturday. I show up to the Saturday appt only to be told she doesn't do procedures on Saturdays but the receptionist who scheduled the appt never told me that. And worse, despite her staff being at fault, Dr Rush refused to make an exception to accommodate us. Terrible service.
