Care Philosophy

Patient Comments (1)
in Tacoma, WA |
He is a great doctor and I would like to continue seeing him. However, I cannot get anyone to pick up the phone. Spent over 45 minutes waiting for some person to help me over the course of three separate phone calls. Never did get the chance to speak with a person. I cannot make an appointment online because only new patients can make online appointments.
