Very professional and kind
in Chandler, AZ |
He is a very nice Dr . But you feel so rushed when you see him. Staff is pretty rude. They denied me making an appt because I had a $40 balance due. I have called the office many times and have left messages. No call back.You can never get a person on the phone. Always on hold for 30 mins or more at a time.Changing Dr's!!!!!!!!
