Brooklyn, NY |
New patient with prior health problems and just leaving home is a struggle..I made Appt to see Dr. Desai for these blackout pass out episodes I have . When I called to make Appt I was leery because whomever answered the phone was VERY unprofessional... But I ignored and waited the 2wks for my Appt. Office smelled horrible wasn't welcoming and the patient intake forms were tacky. Anyway the incompetent front desk lady is awful she basically rejected me as a pt saying my refer was old it wasn't!!
