Patient Comments (1)
Hammond, LA |
Totally went down from years ago! You have to wait a week or longer to get a call back. You have a test done and don't get the correct diagnoisis. You find out months later that you have a diagnosis after you where told the test was fine only because you requested a copy of test and find out for yourself!!
