Patient Comments (1)
in Orangeburg, SC |
I am a laryngitis recover who is on vocal rest and I contacted their office through their online contact form. I was impressed to receive a response so quickly that met my needs seeing as how I was not speaking. The response was effective and I confirmed my appointment for April 13th at 4PM; the initial contact was made on April 11th. Following the email correspondence is when everything went south. Very unprofessional and unpleasant receptionist; communication poor between doctor and staff.
