Pompton Lakes, NJ |
Made an appointment over 2 months ago, I was scheduled 10 weeks later , then they called and pushed me out another 4 weeks. I will never go back there again, neither will my daughter, my wife and my 2 sons. Its a shame because we have been patients for almost 20 years. Even though my wife told the girl at the desk I really needed to see the dr she said she couldn't schedule me any sooner. I picked another Dr. by way of google and I have an appointment next week. nobody was interested in my issue

In the office a month prior I made an appt for my mom. Got there the day of my mom's spot and they said she was not in the computer. My mom showed them her appr card. Would not squeeze her in that day. Me and my family will never go back.
