Pacific Palisades, CA |
One of the nastiest front offices in medicine. He might be a good, not great doctor, but the women who run the office are not nice! Attendants at the DVV have better manners, and treat people with more respect than these wome. Go somewhere where you are treated better from the front office to the Doctors office! 3 visits were not the charm. Bad care!
