Madison, WI |
Waited for moths to see him only to be referred to another doctor. Then the referral that was to come in the mail never showed after three weeks. Caling gets you to a main number and they send messages. Don't use this doctor or Aurora Medical.

I waited for about 5 months for my appointment. Only to have the dr say more than once he didn't have time to work on my face. He said my face needed a lot of work. I left the office with referrals for a dr that had the time to wotk on my face. He didn't touch anything on my face.
