Extremely pleased with Dr. Chess. Entire operation is very professional and courteous.
New York, NY |
When I complained about waiting over 2 hours after my appointment time to see the doctor, he responded by saying that most people are happy to wait 3-4 hours to see him. No apology. In the end, he spent less than 5 minutes examining me.
