Patient Comments (1)
Lexington |
I was very disappointed in this practice. The office staff is very unprofessional. For instance, one of the staff had a very public "disagreement" with a patient for all in the office to witness. They were rude to me and I did not feel confident in the cleanliness of the practice. The lab Air conditioning was broken and they were using a window unit. It was a dirty environment in all areas. They announce your full name over an intercom system. No patient privacy & billing/insurance issues
