Patient Comments (1)
in San Francisco, CA |
My appointment was on 11/2/15. Dr. Rust said he would request my allergy results for my previous doctor and we would then decide a course of action. When I heard nothing after 2 months I got the results myself and faxed them to Dr.Rust requesting follow-up. As of today, 3/10/16, I have heard nothing. I did just receive a second bill for my portion of the office visit, which I paid a month ago. Total for the visit, when Rust scoped my nasal cavity and suggested I take OTC med was $756.
