Lakeville, MN |
1st visit was left in gown in freezing room for over an hour with no one checking on me. No apologies. Called to ask if could get my labs and was told had to come in or could not get MY lab results that had to be drawn at his clinic when had already been done at my clinic where covered 100%. Again waited over 45 minutes for him to walk in and say your tests are normal and give no help for my symptoms and walk out and send me a $426 bill to pay!!
