Patient Comments (1)
in Portland, OR |
Please don't waste your time with this care provider. There are plenty of others whose receptionists won't place you on interminable telephone hold and then transfer you to their automated attendant, then not return your call. Life is short. Do your eye care with someone who respects your time.
