Patient Reviews (1)
in Gatesville TX |
So I made an eye appointment and failed to appear. 24 hours notice is required, so by the time I realized my son's cardiology appointment was moved to that time and day, it was too late. So I called to reschedule. The clinic manager answered. And apparently had an entire patient profile on me prepared, because she halted reschedule, shamed me for missed appointments going 3 years back, and made sure I knew that a single missed appointment cost them lots of $$$$$MONEY$$$$$.
