Santa Ana, CA |
My mom has been a patient of dr. Chaychi for several years but has had many issues controlling her diabetes recently. I got involved and found out a device was inquired on to assist my mom over 9 months ago but was never followed up on. I interceded but found her staff rude, unresponsive & unapologetic. If I had not interjected on my moms behalf, nothing was done. I had to still fight them to provide the vendor with the minimal information needed. If you love someone, DO NOT send them to this dr
