Patient Comments (1)
Fresno, TX |
1 hour & 10 minutes PAST the appointment time! Insulting questions. Relies too much on nurses and assistants to gather information prior to seeing a patient. A real annoying & time wasting practice. Talks too fast and with an accent. Does not communicate well to resolve health concerns with convoluted explanations. Poor follow-up after the appointment. An overall disappointing first visit.
