Patient Comments (1)
Allentown, PA |
Dealing with this office is the most frustrating thing ever. My child has been with the practice for 5 months now, we still don't have a diagnosis and her head pain persists, but on average it takes over a week to get a return phone call from the doctor. The phone system at CHOP neurology is a labyrinth that often leads to dead-ends or disconnections, with a less than 50% chance of speaking to an actual human being. Test results sit for days without being shared.
