We have been trying for five months, trying to get Dr Patel to send in paper work to Hoveround. As of today,it has not been done properly. The office will often over book. That incresses rhe wait time. When you call the office, you will often get their answering service. They take three and four Lahr lunches. I have called the office on more than one occasion for up to four hrs and all I got was Rhein and service. That is no way to tun a Dr office!!!
