Patient Comments (2)
in Roanoke, VA |
As a caregiver to one of his patients,I am very,very disappointed in the treatment and follow-up on this patient.Have left several messages with the receptionists for him to please get in contact with him about his medication(which he can not tolerate because of the side effects) with promises from them to return my calls,no call back from them as of yet.While waiting in the waiting room the front check in desk seemed more interested in not the patient but collecting co-pays and gossiping.
