Patient Comments (2)
in Riverton, UT |
Doctor had absolutely no concern for the fact he was giving us life altering information about our child, or the decency to let me wake my husband for the news prior to him giving us this information after the birth of my daughter. I appreciated that when he got wind of my distaste for his lack of care he did try to come discuss it with us, but it felt forced and arrogant. I generally only write positive reviews and chalk the bad ones up to my own emotions but I can't do so here.
