Gaithersburg, MD |
I had a 3 p.m. appointment in his office on Oct. 31, 2016. By 3:55 p.m. Dr. Arenstein had still not appeared. I advised the front desk 1) I was livid for being made to wait so long; 2) I was leaving their offices; and 3) They had best not charge me or my insurance for this visit. When I came in they had me sign a form that said I would pay a fee to the doctor, if I did not show up for the appointment (fair enough). When I asked if I would be paid for my lost time, I got a blank stare.

I made an appointment for my 93 year old friend. It is difficult to get her up and out of the house. I downloaded and completed all of the forms in advance, but in trying to manage her into the car (with her nurse), forgot her insurance card. I had all insurance information and tried to have them exam and clean her ears while I went back for the insurance card but they refused. I find the lack of compassion and understanding to be disrespectful and could never recommend this group of doctors
