La Grange, IL |
We had appointment for 210 pm. There before the appointment time. Not many in waiti m g room. .we left at 4pm without seeing dr. Kay. Our time is worth something also. I thought about sending him a bill for the time I took off work. If you are that slow then change how you schedule your appointments.they had done some testing on him but it had been done for an hour. I won't go back especially if this the way he practices. I wouldn't recommend him to anyone
