Patient Comments (2)
Tucson, AZ |
Do not see him on a Friday afternoon. We were rushed through like cattle. He did not give me any time to ask my questions and did not listen to my answers to his questions. It was the biggest waste of a copay and I have never left a Drs. office feeling so rushed and disrespected. I am seeking a different physician.
