Fishkill, NY |
I met with this doctor several times regarding stomach bypass surgery and he prescribed a series of tests including one needing a prescription. Despite numerous attempts to obtain the prescription and repeatedly requesting he and his staff follow up - I have still not received the much needed prescription and my request is completely ignored by the doctor - the staffs only response is the doctor has not responded to the requests. What kind of service is this? This is poor service. Terrible!
