Patient Comments (1)
Dr. Wolford was referred by my PCM. The OR was the first time we met. He asked me who I was and if I had ever been to his practice before. I replied no. He then asked me what symptoms I was experiencing and before I could answer walked out of the room! When I woke he was in my room, but I cant remember anything he said of course due to the affects of the anesthesia. I thought this unprofessional. Also, call hold times at the office are unacceptable (30+ minutes).
