Patient Comments (1)
in Des Moines, IA |
Unfortunately Dr Spencer has a near monopoly in the area for her speciality, and her office uses that as an excuse to expect patients to wait ridiculous amounts of time both to get an appointment, as well as during appointments. They do not see their patients and families' time as valuable and are rude when it is called to their attention. I was told directly that no effort will be made to change this. So, wait a month to get an appointment, show up on time and expect to spend too much time.
