oakland, ca |
Four years ago Dr. Chard failed to tell me the results of my colonoscopy. I had to get the report to find out what the results were. Six weeks ago , due for another colonoscopy, my primary MD referred me to Dr. Stollman, in the same group as Chard. Staff refused to make an appointment becauset Chard had to give Stollman permission first. Six weeks passed before I was contacted. So Very UNPROFESSIONAL. I made other arrangements. I would never return to East Bay Center for Digestiive Health.
