Patient Comments (1)
in Northridge, CA |
I arrived for my 11:20 appointment at 10:40. The receptionist advised me my appointment was for 10:20. I know it was 11:20 because I wrote it in my calendar while I was making the appointment. I explained to the receptionist that I had waited 2 and 1/2 months for this appointment. She said they allow a 15 minute grace period but we missed it by 5 minutes! She would not even ask the doctor if he could see me. I would not recommend this doctor due to his inefficient, rude & indifferent staff.
