Recommended by a personal friend who is also an ocular oncologist. Was not disappointed!
Nashville, TN |
The last two times I visited Dr. Felch I ended up waiting nearly 2 hours. My other doctor has a survey called M3 Patient Experience that gives them feedback from patients. I wish Dr. Felch had this so he could see how long patients have to wait. Not sure anyone at his office will actually see this.
