Patient Comments (1)
Los Angeles, CA |
Totally unprofessional appointment process. Made an appointment in December for February! Then a phone call in January said that due to a scheduling error I have been moved to April. Then got a phone call in February canceling my April Appt. Specifically an employee named Dana is absolutely terrible. She is unbelievably rude and unprofessional. Seriously, just go somewhere else. Don't waste your time for such disrespectful treatment of patients. My first appointment and he cancelled it twice!
