Patient Comments (1)
in Riverdale, GA |
He has not worked well with me on any of my issues since I left the hospital. i went to see him for a followup and all he did was write me a prescription. i have pulmonary embolisms in both lungs. his office was to order a sleep study for me. i had to keep calling. finally they called for one that was out of my network and i couldnt use. i gave his office the numbers of the companies my insurance works with and was told he only works a company he sits on the board of. nothing they can do.
