Patient Comments (1)

HORRIBLE ! I have CIPD and I needed to see a Neurologist as soon as possible and after a week of sitting on my referral I called their office to check on the status. I come to find out this SOB is only accepting patients with epilepsy and sleeping disorders, what kind of a doctor does that ?!
