Patient Comments (1)
Mineola, NY |
As a Healthcare professional it was a major disappointment that I was treated as a # in a factory! No compassion/empathy, or listening skills toward my pain. In-correct information is passed on to insurance company, including wrong location of anatomical concern. I was requested to seek a consult with another specialty as requirement to pursue the recommended treatment by Dr Cardinale. He was to f/u so all would be approved to proceed; which he never did even after many phone calls/e-mails.
