El Paso, TX |
Tried to make an appointment, was told the staff was not in would call back. They did not call back. I called them and they told me the appointment was this day in four hours. I drove a hour to appointment and was told hey were an hour behind. Told me it was against the rules for me to wait in my car . Maybe a good Doctor but the staff could not give a crap about you.
