I'm a patient w/dr. Zarate for years, she's really nice, but her staff is terrible, I have a very bad eye condition and I need some eyes drops, I been calling for the last 3 weeks leaving messages and never get a call back, so I need to loose my eye sight to get their attention. Terrible, I feel...more
