Patient Comments (1)
in Chicago, IL |
I've had 3 appointments with Dr. Brieva, only one of which he was close to being on time to. The last two I had requested the first appointment in the day; when I get there, both times, 15 minutes after my appointment was supposed to begin someone else was called up to go in to see him. Both times I left as soon as I heard that. This last time, I saw him getting out of the elevator as I was leaving! If a doctor is this lazy about coming in, makes me wonder where else he cuts corners.
