Jose – Dec 14, 2019
Very unprofessional way of running a practice. They tried to reschedule my appt for being a few minutes late. I asked the front desk staff why if theirs no one waiting. I shared with them that its very difficult to find parking. Which she ignored everything i said. Didn't even blinked an eye. No response from her what so ever. Then they changed their mind and said yes we'll see you. Not long after a M.A called me in and took my vitals. Long story short they ended up cancelling my appt.
