Terrible, terrible jerk! Nice staff. I hate him.
in Birmingham, AL |
UAB Otolaryngology was extremely professional, prompt and followed all UAB policies and procedures to an impressive perfection. Dr. Waguespack's NP was very thorough and kind when going over the new patient history with me. My previous ENT had some issues in sending over my previous medical records and the UAB ENT staff were quick to call and retrieve the medical records immediately! Dr. Waguespack was very down to earth, took time to listen to me and hear my concerns. A+
