Patient Comments (3)
in Tampa, FL |
This office is one of the worst administered doctor's offices I have ever experienced. The wait times for appointments are ridiculous, you have to call at least 1-2 months out. Then appointment day, the wait time in the waiting room is over an hour and half if not more. Last year I tried to get exams and x-rays done, the office staff gave me stamped scripts that never worked, and I never got replacements so no xrays were possible. Shame since the Doctor is good, but the office is the worse.
in Valrico, FL |
Medical experience aside, this is the most poorly run medical office I have ever encountered. Terrible time management, VERY long wait times past appt time to see doctor, staff is terrible, in-house lab work sloppy, incomplete, and incorrect. I DO NOT RECOMMEND. Too many mistakes and no consideration for the patients. I will be looking elsewhere for a doctor.
