Patient Comments (5)
Henderson, NV |
Office staff was unprofessional, disorganized and not even nice. Went for a consult to refer for routine procedure, Simple, right? Appointment time was messed up, They never sent paper work.. Arrived an hour ahead and still waited over 30 minutes beyond my appointment time, They asked for payment twice and wanted to charge $50 to change the procedure apt. over one month in advance. I can't even imagine how messed up billing will be. I cancelled procedure. Will not go back

Dr. Frankel gave me service as good as I could wish. After the procedure, he sat and talked with me, telling me the results and his recommendations. I found him warm and easy to get along with.
