Patient Comments (4)
El Paso, TX |
I've taken my mother twice to Dr. Foote, he is great BUT his staff and/or scheduling is HORRIBLE! My mother and I waited for AT LEAST 2 hours past her appointment time. I understand every patient requires time, BUT 2 - 3 hours of sitting around waiting? I am switching my mother to a doctor which has more concern about seeing his patients and not trying to pack his schedule and pocket book. I am very frustrated with how my mother has been treated.
