Patient Comments (1)
Lenexa, KS |
Dr H. is an excellent clinician but his front office staff is extremely inconsiderate. I have been sitting in his waiting room for almost two hours listening to the incessant blather of three staff who can't wait to leave work. Not a pleasant nor patient oriented environment.
