Patient Comments (1)
in Tucson, AZ |
If I could give him negative stars to save you time, patience, & money I would. This man needs to lose his license. I went to the Northwest Urgent Care at Orange Grove and sat in a room for 5 hours while being belittled and reprimanded for crying out in pain. His nurse then came in to tell me they don't keep narcotics on the premises like I was a junkie looking for a fix. I wasn't taken seriously & I ended up at the hospital & then was referred to a specialist to find out I had a serious ulcer.
