Patient Comments (1)
in Long Beach, CA |
Dr. Kurzweil and his clinical staff are great. The front desk staff, phone schedulers and billiers can be very rude. Sitting in the waiting room watching how they treat patients especially older folks is mean spirited. Doesn't pay to say anything since you may not be able to get in and see the doctor. I would give Dr Kurzweil 5 stars but can't do that for the staff.
