Patient Comments (1)
in Southport, NC |
The doctor and staff made jokes about my broken ankle attempted to draw me into arguments the doctor himself yelled at me for asking for two colors on my cast, The office and doctor are extremely unprofessional and I would NEVER consider using them for surgery Avoid! Go Somewhere Else! Because the bedside manner of the staff and doctor are indicative of how you would be treat were you unfortunate enough to go through a surgery here.
