This office is terrible! Edna the front desk nurse/clerk I don't know which one she is. I'm a nurse an I know how to fax a request for medical records or call to request them. It's been 4 months an no records in my file. When I asked her what happened she got a attitude an said if the doctor needs them he will ask for them. Smh. And Dr. Micheal Clifford is the worst doctor I've ever meet. I've been in the medical field since 1994 , and I've been a nurse since 2002. He doesn't listen to anything
Las Vegas, NV |
He is the most arrogant, full of himself doctor I have ever met. He is not consistent or clear in the instructions he gives. He will then behave as if the patient is at fault for not following directions. After ordering several tests, when I came in for the results he acted like he had no idea why I was there. He IS rude and condescending just as the other reviews have warned. I will never go back. I will also inform my primary care doctor who referred me how his patients are treated here.
