Hi Rhonda, I work with Dr. McNellis and would like to learn more about your experience. Dr. McNellis himself never turns someone away for being late, so I want to try to figure out where the communication breakdown on our side was. Would you mind emailing me your full legal name when you have a moment - sbennett@charlestonent.com - this way I can look up your record and we can learn from what happened. Thanks so much! Staci
