Patient Comments (2)

in Spring Lake Park, MN |
I stopped into the office for a new tube in my hearing aid, not being a current patient. I paid $5.00 for Ronny to replace it , only to find out the tube is too short, and does not stay in my ear. I am unable to wear it, and the place I bought it from said I could walk in to have the tube replaced...more

The doctor was too rushed and confused me with a different patient. He even forgot to send my RX to my pharmacy.
