Patient Comments (1)
San Bernardino, CA |
He is a poor listener and repeats himself. And drive you crazy getting the same questions. He is an older doctor who should retire. I told him how many years i had the problem and the next question how long have you had this problem. Was argumentative. Couldn't get a hold of staff and the message center never sent any message. So just poor communication from office staff and doctor, which is the most important thing about working with a doctor to get good treatment.
