Patient Comments (2)
Madison, CT |
She seemed rushed and stressed which probably was the reason she was slightly impatient and curt. When dealing with children, you would hope someone would be more patient and playful. She also recommended treatments that were very invasive. Her staff was not the friendliest.
Groton, CT |
Been calling for 2 weeks...rings a few times then just disconnects...both numbers! Still in practice???
