Patient Comments (1)
in Allentown, PA |
I felt like just another paycheck. What started out as a pleasant encounter quickly turned into unpleasant. I had extreme upper right abdominal pain and was run through testing galore. I continued to have extreme pain which resulted in visits to the ER. When asking questions or for anything like results I had to initiate contact. I felt as if they predetermined my diagnosis without ever listening to me. I will never recommend this doctor and will be transferring myself.
