Patient Comments (1)
Medina Tx |
She is very knowledgeable in her profession, and does her homework about you in determining your problems. But it stops there. She provides you with a "homework " sheet, explaining what you need to do. I was started on a new medication and was scheduled an appointment in 2 months! With the medication changes I have re-gained 20lbs of fluid. I have called over and over only to be put on hold and forgotten about. So I went to the office, only to find a note saying there closed due to short staff.
