Patient Comments (1)
in Port Allen, LA |
After being diagnosed with lung cancer Dr. Abernathy visited her and seemed very cold. We were told to call the office on Tuesday to set-up treatments if Dr's office hadn't called on Monday. Her office did call on Monday and asked for her insurance information. Her office hasn't called back to set-up treatments and it is another week gone. We are looking for another doctor now. She may be a great doctor but from the experience we have had so far we don't want to use this doctor.
