What People Say About Dr. Mario Ammirati, MD
Reply
My husband had his first appointment with this Doctor. We arrived on time as instructed. after 1 hour waiting in the lobby. We went to the room. Waited 30 more minutes for the assistant Wendy to come in take info and advise the Doctor will be in shortly. 2 hours later we left. Not Once did someone say they are running behind and they were sorry for our wait. If someone would have done so we would have waiting as Treating people with dignity and respect always work for my family. Don't go here!
