Patient Comments (1)
in Cadillac, MI |
Dr. Brenz is a wonderful opthamologist. I would highly recommend. My problem is with Reimer Eye Center Cadillac and their new facilities. This practice needs to hire more technicians, so that there is always a tech with the physician. Reimer seems to expect the physicians to navigate the EMR system, which is a waste of their valuable time. When I requested a record be forwarded to 3 physicians, there were no technicians available to forward my record. MD should not have to do this.
