Patient Comments (1)
Brookfield, WI |
Phone call was not returned as promised Required several follow up efforts on my part. Exam was cursory, verbal nonspecific referral made, i.e.. you should see a surgeon in your area No written referral given, no sense of urgency, no diagnostic information that could be shared. Not impressed.
