Cannot get a return call, email, or results of evaluation. No up appointment provided. Very disappointing.

Dr. Penkaba was paid by my insurance for my son’s developmental test. After 8 months we have not received the diagnosis report. We have called and gone to the office over 12 times, but we always get the same answer...they are not done yet. How can we report this to the board?

Horrible Dr. Wanted to just give out meds. Not helpful and it took over 6 months to get the report from her visit. i had to find out what the diagnoses from the visit from the insurance billing lady because the Dr. said she wasnt sure everything she was asked a question during the appointment.
