Patient Comments (1)
in Seattle, WA |
Very poor experience. Dr ran several tests on me for no reason as I was referred by another doctor the day before in which all but one test was already performed. And because of this I have a large bill to pay. Doctor was dismissive and rude. Assistants were nice enough, but I'm very unhappy with the visit overall.
