in Acworth, GA |
I saw Dr. Bumgarner his consultation was great. Trying to schedule surgery with his office not so great. I have been waiting over a week to get a date for surgery. I think the worst part is they haven't even called me back once. I am the one calling them every day. I would have scheduled that day but wanted to discuss it with my wife first. I was under the assumption that it would be no problem to call back the next day and was given a direct line to the person who schedules appointments.
