Yuma, AZ |
I had my appointment scheduled six months in advance. They called on a Friday before my Monday appointment to reshedule because the doctor was out of the office. When I called on the day of my appointment before going in they did not have my new appointment on the book. They said I was scheduled for my old appointment day.

Waited over an hour and ended up leaving without being seen. Every patient in the waiting room had waited over an hour also.
