Patient Comments (1)
Malta, NY |
Office too busy, waiting room always full. Wait time very long. Takes hours to get through by phone always busy. Does staff put it on hold? Doctor rushed.. Hubby had "normal" annual exam, 2 months later serious vision problems. Tried calling, phone always busy. Made appointment with another doctor. Hubby has maccular degeneration in both eyes, one wet and quite bad Hard to believe it wasn't there during the exam. Changed doctors.
