in Muncie, IN |
Doc. Phillipson is very good, but wait time and scheduling are horrific! I recently called to get in having severe ear pain and the nurse said she couldn't get me in till December! A month away, she then asked if I had a primary care doctor, well when you have problems with your ear, you have to see your ENT! Very disappointing, I am sure Dr. Phillipson does not know I couldn't get in. So I have to go out of town to see someone new. I am not happy about that . ??
