Houston, TX |
I didnt even get to meet the doctor thanks so the rude staff. I feel like if I have any questions regarding an appointment, they should be easily answered and with no need of an attitude. For the appointment receptionist, I am sorry you are unhappy but your attitude is one good way of losing patients.

Dr. Amaratunge was excellent and very pleasant. She was thorough interviewing me and very informative of what the plan was with me. The office staff is very friendly and helpful, which is a plus when one is dealing with health issues.
