Patient Comments (2)
Brooklyn, NY |
Doctor was extremely late for appointment without a good reason Made appointment for consultation before routine screening colonoscopy I had made a point of asking if he kept appointment times I was told he did I was asked to come early 15' to do paper work which I did but courtesy is one way street with this guy I walked out after being made to wait for a prolonged time. With the hope of finding a more considerate MD
in New York, NY |
He did not diagnose what was apparent to a different GI specialist: that my child needed to have the gall bladder removed ASAP. Because of the delay, there's a risk of additional gallstones that would have to removed in a second procedure. We experienced a poor bedside manner that hindered communication.
