Patient Comments (1)
in Hot Springs National Park, AR |
His staff has been nothing but RUDE! Tried to get an appointment and the only thing the nurse knew how to say was, "Get your general doctor to run tests and then give a referral". Tried to find out what the tests were that were required and she repeated herself. Cannot say that they have a good patient rapport. Got a referral for a different doctor with NO further tests needed. HORRID
