Patient Comments (3)
Centreville, Al |
They are building a business not a practice. Lack of treatment, doesn't follow up unless you come in, unnecessary office visits (things could be done in single visit), never able to see the same Dr, to busy politicking. Should effectively treat patients instead of driving them through like livestock. Front desk says you can only get test results if you make an appointment. It not just this Dr it's all in this practice. Appears to be management and policy related.
