Patient Comments (2)
in DE |
Long wait, poorly trained staff. Below average. The front desk was making personal call on the cell phone and ignored me while I stood infront of her. Technicians were youg high school students, very confused. They played music chair and forgot me while I waited for dilation. The doctor rushed her exam because she was behind on her schedule.

Very thorough! I trust her completely. Only complaint is wait time-- but that means she's being conscientious!
