Patient Comments (1)
Coachella Valley, CA |
This is a large eye clinic in So CA. Specific doctors work in certain locations. Not impressed with Palm Desert facility. Waited 3 hours over my appointment time in a crowed office. Everyone that day had waited 3 hours. I came for a consult. A doctor that makes you wait long is not respectful of my time. Apparently he overbooks and if that is an indication of surgery day I don't want him as my doctor. Trying to get any records from there they want to charge you, Brenda is rude as rest of staff.
