Patient Comments (1)
in Bennington, Vermont |
It's awkward for me how he records everything while I'm sitting there. I feel like I'm not supposed to talk. My appointments are always SUPER brief and I feel like he doesn't really care to talk to me. His receptionist is very chatty, but can be very rude. I never get a call back for lab results.
