Patient Comments (1)
in Kingsland, GA |
On more than 2 visits wait time was excessive. The staff is unconcerned about their current patient. More worried about too many other cases and their workload. Staff is unfamiliar with the equipment. Dr. Pennington is very matter of fact and does not listen to patients concerns or statements. She does perform her duties efficiently and quickly in a professional manner. The receptionist has either a very cheerful personality or is condescending. "just super!"
