Patient Comments (1)
in Denver, CO |
Service is convenient but staff lack basic knowledge in principles of senior care. Patients never see Dr shirar and this is lack of truthfulnessential in advertising. This is the puppy mill service for seniors. Quantity does not equate to quality. There are other similar models of care available so best to avoid this service if you can if you care about your loved one. I could list specific examples but the list goes on and on. .......
